Extracting field from JSON and XML response

Explorer

Depending on the content-type, the response that is logged is either in JSON or XML. I want to create a single query that would extract the REQUEST and DETAIL regardless of what the content-type is. I'm thinking I'd have to use spath, but I'm having a hard time grabbing the response between the "------------" and "<<<<<<<<<<<". I tried escaping it but no luck. Any help would be appreciated.

Note that these are 2 different log events.

The juicy bits are in the bottom nine or so lines.

I am aware of that - if you run the above query you'll see two events treated equally.

Thanks martin. The two logs above are actually 2 different events.
