ERROR [ims.default] org.xml.sax.SAXException
org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: Invalid byte 1 of 1-byte UTF-8 sequence.

 

Cause

The error indicated that XML format is not correct when reading the data. The error message means Objectfeeder try to read the data as UTF-8 (either deliberately or because that is the default encoding for an XML file that does not specify but it is actually in a different encoding.

Environment

Resolution

Make sure XML is on UTF-8 encoding or convert to UTF-8 if it is under other encoding.
