My code looks like below

Please provide me solution

HttpGet query = new HttpGet(catalogURI);
        query.addHeader("Accept", "application/xml");
        query.addHeader("OSLC-Core-Version", "2.0");

        // Access to the Service Providers catalog
        HttpResponse response = HttpUtils.sendGetForSecureDocument(server,
                query, login, password, httpclient, JTS_Server);
        if (response.getStatusLine().getStatusCode() != 200) {
            response.getEntity().consumeContent();
            throw new HttpResponseException(response.getStatusLine()
                    .getStatusCode(), response.getStatusLine()
                    .getReasonPhrase());
        }
        // Define the XPath evaluation environment
        XPath xpath = getXpathNamespace();
        String serviceProviderXPath = "//oslc:ServiceProvider[dcterms:title=\""
                + paName + "\"]/@rdf:about";
        

        // Retrieve the designated Service Provider
        InputSource source = new InputSource(response.getEntity().getContent());
        Node paNode = (Node) (xpath.evaluate(serviceProviderXPath, source,XPathConstants.NODE));

OSLC Output in Rest (FireFox)

You should have the source code and debug to find out the cause.
