Problem using XML Data source

2005-06-02 09:36

Hello

I have a little problem with the xmlData Source. I'm trying to create a pdf out of an xml that contains certain info. When i do it in ireports i haven't got problems, the pdf will be created perfectly and it will show all the data. My problem starts when i try to do the same in my web aplication, i can get the pdf done but the info wont apear, i guess i'm missing something, could someone tell me if there's anything wrong in this code? I don't get any error message on my catalina.out log.

 

Thanxs

 

String reportFile = application.getRealPath("/intranet/listadospdf/clientes.jasper");

Map parameters = new HashMap();

String outFileName = application.getRealPath("/intranet/listadospdf/clientes.pdf");

File xmlFileName = new File("C:\ccity\webapps\ROOT_dike\intranet\listadospdf\clientes.xml");

String recordPath = "/CLIENTES/ID";

JRXMLDataSource jrxmlds = new JRXMLDataSource(xmlFileName,recordPath);

JasperPrint print = JasperFillManager.fillReport(reportFile,parameters,jrxmlds);

JRExporter exporter = new net.sf.jasperreports.engine.export.JRPdfExporter();

exporter.setParameter(JRExporterParameter.JASPER_PRINT,print);

exporter.setParameter(JRExporterParameter.OUTPUT_FILE_NAME,outFileName);

exporter.exportReport();

Thaxs for the answer, now i get the record out but it doenst print the data. It's really strange, i get the pdf done with the number of records the suposdly had to print but no data in them.

I don't konw if it helps but when you edit the report in iReport, when defining a field you have to put at "Description" the rest of the path from the "recordPath" through the filed tag.

Exemple:

xml_structure:

<FooRoot>

<FooTag>

<FooInfo>Information</FooInfo>

</FooTag>

</FooRoot>

Let's say you set the record path to "/FooRoot/FooTag".

For the field FooInfo, in iReport you set the field name "FooInfo" (or whatever you want), but in the descrription, you must put "FooInfo".

Or if you use as record path only "FooRoot", at description you must put: "/FooTag/FooInfo"

 

I hope it helps.

Hello. I sugest to check again if the "recordPath" in the application is the same as the one in iReport. I also use XmlDataSource and when same hapens to me, this is the problem. And I think it is case sentive.
