Summary

When generating jobs automatically with XML files, jobs do not get created and the following error appears: Problem parsing due date : <XML_Afleverdatum/> java.lang.Exception: Problem parsing due date.

Symptoms

During automatic creation of jobs via XML, some XML files are processed correctly but others give the following error: Problem parsing due date : <XML_Afleverdatum/> java.lang.Exception: Problem parsing due date.

Cause

The job creation fails if the XML file is not valid. The XML file is invalid if it contains non-encoded special characters.

Solution

If there are any special characters in the XML file, make sure they are properly encoded.

You can check the encoding with  Google Chrome , another  XML validator can be found here:
