Oracle 12 : xml file with several declarations

Recommended Posts


I have a program working with xml files that is not performing anymore since we installed Oracle 12 databases.

The error we suddenly have is this one :

ORA-31011: XML parsing failed 
ORA-06512: at "MYUSER.MYPACKAGE", line 1663 
ORA-19213: error occurred in XML processing at lines 2 
LPX-00209: PI names starting with XML are reserved 
ORA-06512: at "SYS.XMLTYPE", line 272 
ORA-06512: at "MYUSER.MYPACKAGE", line 1162 
ORA-06512: at line 1 

It seems there is a problem on line 2 of the xml. Indeed this file is particular. There is an xml declaration on each line and lines are pretty long, defining several xml blocks :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><Flag:......

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><Message:......

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><Message:......


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><Message:......

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><EndFile:......

In the program the first thing done is to create a blob file from this xml file (this is a function called at the beginning :  FUNCTION TransformToCLOB(filename varchar2) RETURN CLOB)

src_clob:=BFILENAME('MY_REPERTOIRE', filename);
dbms_lob.createtemporary(dest_clob, cache=>TRUE);

, src_clob


RETURN dest_clob;

after that, there is this instruction  (ligne 1162 where the error occurs):


What has changed in Oracle 12 that causes the problem?

 I have the feeling that several declarations in one file are not welcome anymore.

Hi burleson.

I found this page already but it does not say anything about it. If you can open the request,  it would be quite appreciated.

Thank you
