        Description

        FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
        java version "1.6.0_17"
        Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_17-b04)
        Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 14.3-b01, mixed mode, sharing)

        ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
        Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
        JRE 1.6.0_17 comes with a JAXP default implementation which currently is a buggy XALAN release: Large XSL files cannot be compiled, leading to an error message. Latest XALAN 2.7.1 contains a fix, but that one is not part of the JRE bundle so far.

        STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
        Compile a XSL transformation file being about 128 to 256 KB large.

        EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
        EXPECTED -
        Should compile without further problems.
        ACTUAL -
        XALAN contained in com.sun.org.apache complains that it cannot load the translet.

        ERROR MESSAGES/STACK TRACES THAT OCCUR :
        javax.xml.transform.TransformerConfigurationException: Die Translet-Klasse 'GregorSamsa' konnte nicht geladen werden.


        REPRODUCIBILITY :
        This bug can be reproduced always.

        ---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
        Java Test Driver:

        package de.quipsy.xslt;
        import java.io.File;
        import javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory;
        import javax.xml.transform.stream.StreamSource;
        public final class GregorSamsa {
            public static final void main(final String[] a) throws Throwable {
                TransformerFactory.newInstance().newTransformer(new StreamSource(new File("2010_Kundenreklamationen.XFO")));
            }
        }

        The used XSL Sample File can be requested by email.


        ---------- END SOURCE ----------

        CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
        Replace JVM-bundled XALAN by latest "original" XALAN-2.7.1 (to be downloaded from apache.org) -- Copy the following files into jre6/lib/ext:

        serializer.jar
        xalan.jar
        xercesImpl.jar
        xml-apis.jar
