Strange XML Datasource behaviour

2006-01-11 02:17



I've got a little problem which drives me crazy. I've created a report with a XML datasource. The XML File looks like this and is named text.xml:


<config_header> <configurationname>Test</configurationname>

<technic>AXH 2500</technic>


<materiallist>Vodafone, AXR</materiallist>






connection properties are:

Name: test

XML file: C:iReport-0.5.3test.xml

Select expression: /config_header


In my report I've definied a text field in the report fields menu with settings:

field name: model

type: String

description: ./model


Then I've positioned this field in the middle of the detail band and enabled isStretchWithOverflow and set position type to float.


I've set the active connection to "test" and compile and run the report. No exception is thrown. iReports simply generates an empty document. Now, if I change the text.xml to the following, the report displays my $F{model} field and generates a page in the report.






Anyone have an idea why the upper xml file doesn't work? Thanks in advance.

Ok, found the problem.

It seems that there are problems when xml files include special characters like ä, ö, ü etc. Is there any way to get around this problem without changing the xml file?
