You are creating a transformation, and in the mapper you create a xpath expression using one of the BPEL Xpath Extension functions, eg ora:getInstanceId() or ora:formatDate('dateTime', 'format').  In JDeveloper, there are no compilation or deployment errors but the xpath expression fails to execute at runtime with an error similar to this:

XPath expression failed to execute.Error while processing xpath expression, the expression is "ora:processXSLT('Transformation.xsl',bpws:getVariableData('inputVariable','payload'))", the reason is file:///u01/app/oracle/product/10.1.3/soasuite/bpel/domain/default/tmp/.bpel_BPMREG_1.0_c6743744be71cd1ae3316e23cc68f14c.tmp/Transformation_1.xsl<Line 42, Column 55:
XML-22016: (Error) Extension function namespace should start with ''. . Please verify the xpath query.
