Uwe Schindler commented on LUCENE-8291:
---------------------------------------

I did not notice, that the whole demo webapplication is now obsolete. So I 
removed it, too. We should just make sure that we have some lucene demo 
available that actually works. But from looking at the code this was more or 
less a template engine, so not really useful for a programmer. It was just a 
nice looking demo.

Maybe we should move the QueryParserTemplate manager to the demoe webapp as a 
private class and just use it from there? If yes, I'd revert [~mkhludnev]'s 
changed and the removal of the webapp / ivy deps.

> It appears that in QueryTemplateManager.java lines 149 and 198 and in 
> DOMUtils.java line 204 XML is parsed without disabling external entity 
> references (XXE). This is described in 
> [http://cwe.mitre.org/data/definitions/611.html] and possible mitigations are 
> listed here:
