Cause

This issue was introduced due to xmlbeans library JAR file that was missed in the FDM patch build 4.9.179.

Environment

Release : 4.9.179 to 4.9.193

Component : Fast Data Masker

Resolution

The xmlbeans library JAR was included again in FDM 4.9.195 version. This issue would occur for the FDM versions between(and including) 4.9.179 and 4.9.193.

The solution is to download the FDM patch build on or after 4.9.195 from below link and upgrade.
