ATOM XML NOT SHOWING IN IE8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am using IE8 and VS2008

    When I right click my Service.svc file to view in browser, I get the following xml:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="yes" ?> 
    - <service xml:base="http://localhost:2873/ADONetServicesTest/Service.svc/" xmlns:atom="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom" xmlns:app="http://www.w3.org/2007/app" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2007/app">
    - <workspace>
      <atom:title>Default</atom:title> 
    - <collection href="Authors">
      <atom:title>Authors</atom:title> 
      </collection>
    - <collection href="Books">
      <atom:title>Books</atom:title> 
      </collection>
      </workspace>
      </service>
    However if I try to navigate to the Author entity using the url I do not see an XML document in the browser.

    I see a message asking if I want to subscribe to the feed.

    1 - Why am not seeing the atom XML? Do I have to configure IE8 to be able to see the xml?

    2 - Do I need to install any tool in IE8 to view the atom XML?

    Cheers

  • IE8 has "Feed view" that applies a xslt to the XML if it detects any of the supporting formats. You can turn this feature off by going to Tools->Internet Options->Content->Feed and Web slices->Settings->uncheck "Turn on feed reading view"
