XML Datasource XPath problem

2005-03-17 09:13

Hi!

I'm trying to read some Rows in XML document using JRXmlDatasource (jasper)!

But in the detail of report i can see only the first Row!

...

<Doc>

<Row>

<Mytag>aaa</MyTag>

</Row>

<Row>

<Mytag>bbbb</MyTag>

</Row>

</Doc>

 

the Xpath selection writed in description

of the field is '/Doc/Row/MyTag'

 

I've tried all Xpath selection with no results!

Thanks in advance!

 

Regards Vincenzo!

Try using the XPath '/Doc/Row' for the report and use 'Mytag' as the Xpath(description) for the field displaying the value in your detail band.

 

Hope this helps

Did you ever solve this problem?

 

I am trying to access the xml file and display the details in a pdf,i keep getting this error

 

Caused by: java.lang.LinkageError: Class org/w3c/dom/traversal/NodeIterator violates loader constraints: definition mismatch between parent and child loaders

 

if i have the description tag for the field....if i remove the description tag then the pdf is generated but i get all null values inside the report.........

 

this is the code i use to parse and compile the file

 

else if(request.getParameter("GetFromXMLSourceFormSubmit") != null){

 

Map params = new HashMap();

try

{

System.out.println("111111111");

//Document document = JRXmlUtils.parse(new File("C:/WINDOWS/Profiles/nkaushik/IBM/rationalsdp6.0/workspace/Source/JasperReportsSampleWar/WebContent/WEB-INF/classes/northwind.xml"));

JRXmlDataSource xmlDataSource= new JRXmlDataSource(new File("C:/WINDOWS/Profiles/nkaushik/IBM/rationalsdp6.0/workspace/Source/JasperReportsSampleWar/WebContent/WEB-INF/classes/northwind.xml"),"/Northwind/Customers");

//JRXmlDataSource xmlDataSource= new JRXmlDataSource(document,"/Northwind/Customers");

JasperReport jasperReport = JasperCompileManager.compileReport("C:/WINDOWS/Profiles/nkaushik/IBM/rationalsdp6.0/workspace/Source/JasperReportsSampleWar/WebContent/WEB-INF/classes/Customers.jrxml");

//Document document = JRXmlUtils.parse(new File("C:/WINDOWS/Profiles/nkaushik/IBM/rationalsdp6.0/workspace/Source/JasperReportsSampleWar/WebContent/WEB-INF/classes/northwind.xml"));

 

System.out.println("22222222222222");

//params.put(JRXPathQueryExecuterFactory.PARAMETER_XML_DATA_DOCUMENT, document);

System.out.println("333333333333333");

//JasperRunManager.runReportToPdfFile("C:/WINDOWS/Profiles/nkaushik/IBM/rationalsdp6.0/workspace/Source/JasperReportsSampleWar/WebContent/WEB-INF/classes/Customers.jrxml", params);

JasperPrint jasperPrint = JasperFillManager.fillReport(jasperReport, params,xmlDataSource);

System.out.println("444444444444444");

JasperExportManager.exportReportToPdfFile(jasperPrint,"c:/reportFromXML.pdf");

System.out.println("5555555555555555");

JasperExportManager.exportReportToHtmlFile(jasperPrint,"c:/reportFromXML.html");

System.out.println("66666666666666666666");

}

catch (JRException e)

Hi!

Try to creating a docment of xmldatasource as follows:

Code:
Document document = JRXmlUtils.parse(new File(XML_Path));

 

Create HashMap

lets say "Hmap".

Code:
[code]
Hmap.put("XML_DATA_DOCUMENT",document);

 

Code:
[code]
JasperPrint jasperPrint = JasperFillManager.fillReport(jasperReport, Hmap,new JREmptyDataSource);

 

Try this it might help you.

Tell if t does.

Thanks Nitin,

I tried it and unfortunately it does not work.

I think the problem is due to xerces in classpath. I created a sample app just to check this out and xerces is causing this. This is a major show stopper for me. Now I have to either figure out how to work around this (cause I cannot delete/remove xerces from classpath) or ditch the whole idea of using xmldatasource :((

Thanks anyway.

Let me know if you think of something I can try.
