hi all,

i'm getting the error

ORA-29554: unhandled Java out of memory condition

when trying to parse xml files into some oracle tables. my process calles several procedures and uses the oracle xml packages to parse and store data from the xml files in tables. i have been battling this issue for some time. please see theses links to find out more:



i believe i am freeing all xml components such as the processor and document. i have upped my java_max_sessionspace_size paramter to 200mb, the java_soft_sessionsapce_limit to 200mb, the java_pool_size to 200mb, and used the pl/sql procedure suggested by lucy in the second link above to increase the memory for my session to 200mb. some of the files i'm parsing are fairly large, but i just can't believe i'm using up this much memory. does anybody have any idea how i can get around this? thanks.

using DOM to process xml is very memory intensive. need to look in to using SAX.

Ora-29554 might come due to less "java_max_sessionspace"

Please try increasing it and refer following notes for more info:
