Using special characters in <param-value> elements in server.xml
Last updated on OCTOBER 20, 2017
Applies to:Oracle Containers for J2EE - Version: 10.1.2.0.2
This problem can occur on any platform.
Using special characters such as < & > as values of <param-value> elements in the server.xml initially works after editing this file. Upon deploying an application to this container, the param-values in server.xml are rewritten as absolute characters, which can break the xmlparser and prevent the OC4J container from starting up again. Surrounding the value used with <![CDATA]> incurs the same character rewrite problem.
