I am attempting to configure a Data Connector to an Oracle 12c Enterprise database.  For now, I am attempting to do this with an Application Managed connection (although I understand that a Container Managed connection is advised for Oracle).  I am receiving the following error in id-process.log:

16:20:41.395 - ERROR [edu.internet2.middleware.shibboleth.common.config.BaseService:188] - Configuration was not loaded for shibboleth.AttributeResolver service, error creating components.  The root cause of this error was: org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: cvc-complex-type.2.4.b: The content of element 'resolver:DataConnector' is not complete. One of '{"urn:mace:shibboleth:2.0:resolver:dc":QueryTemplate}' is expected.

However, I have 'xmlns="urn:mace:shibboleth:2.0:resolver:dc"' set as a parameter in my resolver:DataConnector configuration.

Following is the Data Connector portion of my attribute-resolver.xml file:

    <resolver:DataConnector xsi:type="RelationalDatabase" xmlns="urn:mace:shibboleth:2.0:resolver:dc" id="mySIS">
        <ApplicationManagedConnection jdbcDriver="oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver"
                                         jdbcPassword="my_password" />
        <!-the following lines are comment out for now...
                SELECT * FROM student WHERE gzbtpid = '$requestContext.principalName'

        <dc:Column columnName="gzbtpid" attributeID="uid" />
        <dc:Column columnName="fqlft" attributeID="gpa" type="Float" />

Any assistance is appreciated.  Thanks.
