In Oracle 10.2.0.4 the execution of a simple xml procedure always crashes the DB Service on Windows x64 systems.
It does not happen on Windows 32 bit systems.
SQL> call exec_xml('DB will crash');
call exec_xml('DB will crash')
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-03113: end-of-file on communication channel
One of the possible examples simply validates an xml file , for example example.xml,
against the related dtd file . This code is just an example that is meant to show that the issue can be faced
by simply validating an xml file.
As a result :
- The DB Service crashes and has to be restarted.
- No entry is generated in the alert file.
- No trace file is generated under either, bdump, cdump, udump or <ORACLE_HOME>/rdbms/trace
- Drwatson does not create any log
Only the Event Viewer shows the following:
Faulting application oracle.exe, version 10.2.0.4, faulting module
oraxml10.dll, version 10.2.0.4, fault address 0x00000000000b7906
