ORA-31181 WHEN DBMS_XMLDOM.FREEDOCUMENT FREES INCORRECT DOMDOCUMENT OBJECT (Doc ID 1586711.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.2.0.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Calling dbms_xmldom.freeDocument() out of order fails with ORA-31181.

The following code has a side effect of freeing DOC2 (rather than DOC1) so any future attempt to work with DOC2 fails with ORA-31181.




ORA-31181: PL/SQL DOM handle accesses node that is no longer available
