When processing an XML (or other) file using an Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) Standalone Agent with an ODI_MAX_HEAP value of 256 MB, the following messages are observed in the Agent log file:

2014-04-01 11:15:39.978 NOTIFICATION Accepting the XML model and creating the corresponding Relational model
2014-04-01 11:15:39.983 NOTIFICATION Validating model for the XML driver

and Java core dumps are also created containing the following

Note: The above error stack was generated for an XML file application, but could be applicable to any type of file ODI is trying to work with.  The key is seeing multiple "Caused by: ODI-1226" in the agent log file.
