Doc Text:
By default, XML documents with Document Type Definitions are considered invalid. To allow such documents, the setting resteasy.document.secure.disableDTDs must be set to false. This disables the checking of XML documents with Document Type Definition. By default, secure processing is set to true. To disable this, edit the configuration file web.xml, and set the attribute resteasy.document.secure.processing.feature to false. The Xerces module included in JBoss EAP 6.4 does not support the parameter Max attributes limit.

Description Katerina Odabasi 2014-11-21 14:44:28 UTC
Title: Add Chapter about Resteasy default behaviour change

Describe the issue:
1) by default xml documents with DTD are not allowed -> setting resteasy.document.secure.disableDTDs to false in web.xml is needed to allow it.

2) by default secure processing is set to true -> setting resteasy.document.secure.processing.feature to false in web.xml is needed to disable it.

Xerces 2.9.1.redhat-6 included in EAP 6.4.0 doesn't support Max atributtes limit.

This needs to be mentioned in release notes.

Suggestions for improvement:
