  • As a workaround in such a case replace
    <xsl:apply-templates/>
    by
    <xsl:apply-templates select="self::*/node()"/>
    

Problem summary

  • Affected is use of <xsl:apply-templates/> without @select in

    In rare cases <xsl:apply-templates/> might not work as expected.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The fix for this issue breaks streaming, which is no problem

    Policy. "XSLT 1.0" and the new option differ only wrt the fix
    for this APAR.
    
    Fix is available in 7.5.2.17, 7.6.0.10 and 2018.4.1.0
