      In JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.0.0 or greater, the fragment filter is bypassed when the Smooks configuration only contains a single XSLT that is applied to the root fragment. In this situation the XSLT is applied directly. This is done for performance reasons.

      This behavior can be disabled by adding a parameter called enableFilterBypass and setting it to false.

        <param name="enableFilterBypass">false</param>

    Description

      A Smooks XSLT transformation which worked in SOA-P 4.3 is not applied in SOA-P 5, due to a performance optimization inside Smooks between version 1.0 and 1.2. From Tom Fennelly:


      The only change to Smooks (wrt XSLT) in the last few releases had been the addition of support for bypassing the Smooks filter. This is a performance enhancement and what it means is that if the only configuration in the smooks config is a single XSLT targeted at the root fragment (whole document), then the Smooks fragment filter is bypassed and the XSLT is applied directly.

      To prevent this from happening, configure the resource to disable the filter bypass by adding a param setting "enableFilterBypass" to "false" (<param name="enableFilterBypass">false</param>).


      Could we please get this documented? Good places would be:

      • Smooks Guide, Chapter 4.2.3 XSL Templates
      • Release Notes, Chapter 10. Possible Issues Migrating to 5.0
