      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.6.0-beta2"
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0-beta2-b86)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0-beta2-b86, mixed mode, sharing)

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Linux wh58-307 2.6.16.18 #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue May 30 20:43:33 MEST 2006 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      When reading a valid xml file using SUNs StAX implementation, I always get an StackOverflowError probably because the internal xerces implementation is bogus.

      My guess is, that it does not handle element text correctly.

      A short application, that demonstrates the error, might be downloaded via
      http://www.linofee.org/~jel/develop/sunStax/ :
          Bla.java .. the mini demo application
          US.xml.gz .. the xml file to parse
          exception.txt.gz .. full exception

      Reading the file with Bea/Codehaus StAX RI is no problem at all.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      java -cp . Bla US.xml.gz

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      no exceptions at all
      ACTUAL -

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.

      ---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
      XMLInputFactory xif = XMLInputFactory.newInstance();
      xif.setProperty(XMLInputFactory.IS_COALESCING, Boolean.TRUE);
      ...
      XMLStreamReader in = ....;
      ...
      String txt = in.getElementText();
      ---------- END SOURCE ----------

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      XMLInputFactory xif = XMLInputFactory.newInstance();
      // bad for performance
      xif.setProperty(XMLInputFactory.IS_COALESCING, Boolean.FALSE);
