3266276 - SFAPI duplicate namespace

Symptom

You notice a change in the structure of the SFAPI payload starting CW43 or CW44 2022 (e.g. there seems to be a duplicate namespace)
This may be causing issues, e.g. parsing errors in the client application.  


Sample Code:

Before
---------
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<S:Envelope xmlns:S="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
 <S:Body>
  <loginResponse xmlns="urn:sfobject.sfapi.successfactors.com" xmlns:ns2="urn:fault.sfapi.successfactors.com">
   <result>
    <sessionId>redacted</sessionId>
    <msUntilPwdExpiration xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:nil="true"/>
   </result>
  </loginResponse>
 </S:Body>
</S:Envelope>

After
-------
<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<S:Envelope xmlns:S="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:SOAP-ENV="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
 <SOAP-ENV:Header/>
 <S:Body>
  <loginResponse xmlns="urn:sfobject.sfapi.successfactors.com" xmlns:ns2="urn:fault.sfapi.successfactors.com">
   <result>
    <sessionId>redacted</sessionId>
    <msUntilPwdExpiration xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:nil="true"/>
   </result>
  </loginResponse>
 </S:Body>
</S:Envelope>


Environment

SAP SuccessFactors SFAPI

Cause

Expected behaviour

Resolution

You may observe this behaviour after SAP SuccessFactors performed a JKD11 upgrade in our servers during CW 43-44 2022, however this is the expected behaviour from JDK (meaning, everyone should follow this format/spec as per XML spec at: https://www.w3schools.com/xml/xml_syntax.asp )

Please adopt these XML file changes to comply with the XML spec.
