SOA 12c XSLT processor fails with an empty function definition

(Doc ID 2064298.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 03, 2016

Applies to:

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


When invoking a function whose definition is empty (i.e. is syntactically valid but does not contain any transformation nodes), the 12c SOA Suite engine (and JDeveloper 12c) fail during execution and return an error message.

Error message in 12c: Failed to transform source XML. oracle.xml.xpath.XPathException: EmptyFunction function under namespace internal is not defined


in 11g version it worked and it fails in 12c version.
