    XMLA Server Disabled by Default

    XMLA (XML for Analysis, also written XML/A) is a legacy SOAP-based XML protocol used to transfer analysis data over an HTTP connection. XMLA consists of a client component to connect to external XMLA data sources, and a server component that allows XMLA connections to be used internally as data sources in JasperReports Server. XMLA has been deprecated in JasperReports Server since release 7.1, but the functionality was still available.

    As of this release, the XMLA server component is now disabled by default. JasperReports Server can still receive and process data from a Mondrian XMLA data source as a client, but that XMLA connection can no longer be used as a server to define a second data source. If you had reports based on such a data source, they must be modified to use the Mondrian XMLA data source directly.

    It is strongly encouraged to keep the JasperReports Server XMLA server disabled for security considerations. However, the XMLA server can be re-enabled through the following steps:

    1. Edit web.xml.
    2. Find JasperXmlaServlet.
    3. Uncomment the servlet definition and mapping to:

    <servlet>

    <servlet-name>JasperXmlaServlet</servlet-name>

    <servlet-class>com.jaspersoft.jasperserver.war.xmla.XmlaServletImpl</servlet-class>

    <load-on-startup>50</load-on-startup>

    </servlet><servlet-mapping>

    <servlet-name>JasperXmlaServlet</servlet-name>

    <url-pattern>/xmla</url-pattern>

    </servlet-mapping>

    4. Restart the server.
