Namespace Prefixes Incorrect Following Calls Involving BPEL and/or ESB - Transformations/Assigments Fail Due to Mismatching Namespaces

(Doc ID 1293704.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle ESB - Version: and later   [Release: and later ]
Oracle(R) BPEL Process Manager - Version: and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


For example an ESB routing service which is calling a BPEL process performs a transformation of the data while routing. The input to the BPEL process contains elements which do not have namespace prefixes, even though the namespaces are correctly defined in the tags. This causes subsequent transformations to fail as the namespaces do not match. Performing the XSLT transformation within JDeveloper results in the correctly rendered XML with the correct namespace prefixes, but this fails at runtime.

The calls may be any of the following:

  • to or from BPEL and ESB
  •  or from BPEL to BPEL
  •  or from ESB to ESB.
