Using XMLtype.Transform(), the namespace attribute is added twice to the root element.

Code Example


This generates the following output in 11.1.0.7, 11.2.0.1 and 11.2.0.2:

<rootNode xmlns="http://www.europace.ie/xsd/" 
     xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"      
     xmlns="http://www.europace.ie/xsd/"> 
  <testNode>hello World</testNode>
</rootNode>


while in 10.2.0.5 the output is correct

<rootNode xmlns="http://www.europace.ie/xsd/" 
      xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
  <testNode>hello World</testNode>
</rootNode>
