Problem summary

  • Some security problems were found with Java extension functions
    call and extension elements in XSLT.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This defect will be fixed in:
    7.0.0 SR5
    6.0.1 SR6
    6.0.0 SR14
    5.0.0 SR16FP3
    .
    For security reasons, extension functions calls and extension
    elements in XSLT are now disabled when Java security is enabled.
    To override this, set the
    com.ibm.xtq.processor.overrideSecureProcessing system property
    to true. This property only affects XSLT processing.
