org.xml.sax.SAXParseException - Help!

2004-06-27 23:57

Hi, I am tearing my hair out here - can anyone tell me why I am getting the following error when I try to compile an xml file using:




The error is:


org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: URI was not reported to parser for entity [document]

at gnu.xml.aelfred2.SAXDriver.warn(SAXDriver.java:934)

at gnu.xml.aelfred2.SAXDriver.startExternalEntity(SAXDriver.java:631)

at gnu.xml.aelfred2.XmlParser.pushURL(XmlParser.java:3358)

at gnu.xml.aelfred2.XmlParser.doParse(XmlParser.java:159)

at gnu.xml.aelfred2.SAXDriver.parse(SAXDriver.java:320)

at gnu.xml.aelfred2.XmlReader.parse(XmlReader.java:294)

at org.apache.commons.digester.Digester.parse(Digester.java:1514)

at dori.jasper.engine.xml.JRXmlLoader.loadXML(JRXmlLoader.java:400)

... 30 more


My xml file looks like this:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

<!DOCTYPE jasperReport PUBLIC "//JasperReports//DTD Report Design//EN" "http://jasperreports.sourceforge.net/dtds/jasperreport.dtd">

thanks for the advice, but it still isn't working! I thought .jasper was the output file? I must be way off track...

You can compile only .xml file .jrxml is output file

This statement is INCORRECT!


your report definitions are written in XML and can have the extension *.xml or *.jrxml. *.jrxml has been adopted as the new standard extension.


A compiled definition (*.jrxml) becomes a *.jasper

Ok, now that we have the file extensions sorted, any suggestions for the original problem - the 'URI was not reported to parser for entity [document]' exception? I've seen various other queries on this problem, but no answers!

Sorry! I don't know what is the cause of your problem. But I think you can get around it.


1. Did you try to use another JAXP SAX Parser?

2. Do you have to compile the report on the web? If not, you can use the compiled .jasper file directly.


Hope this helps!

I managed to over come this problem by removing all references to gnujaxp on my PC and changing to a different SAX parser.


I set the system properties to change the SAX Parser
