Your query expression might contain XML-specific characters, like "<" or ">".

Replace them with their entities: "&lt;" or "&gt;" respectively.

Sample expression:

<parameter name="/testHtml_${CORE_NAME}$" type="String">
select val from %x{$keyval/tech:physicalPath()}x%
where keycode &lt; 'toto'
limit 1
