PayloadSizeThreshold not Working for Files Larger than 4MB

Oracle SOA Suite - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When the FTP Adapter is used as inbound to receive files from an FTP server, it is possible to limit the size of files by using the payloadSizeThreshold property.

E.g. when the following is set in the composite.xml

then files that are larger than 50000 bytes will be rejected.

This is properly working for all files that are smaller than around 4 MB, but for files larger than that a so-called scalable DOM is created and in this case the payload threshold check is not performed.
