JDK 11 JDK 8
11.0.11Fixed 8u271Fixed
While validating XML signature, ResolverLocalFilesystem.engineResolveURI() opens a new Input Stream which is never closed leading to leakage in file descriptor.
When large number of files are validated, new file descriptor allocation might fail causing the application to fail.
Fix Request Should get backported for parity with 11.0.11-oracle. Applies cleanly.
