We want to use URL as a datasource in JRXML inside JasperStudio, which requires HTTP authentication. Hence, we are using DataAdapter for invoking the URL & getting the data. As per our understanding, DataAdapter supports only basic HTTP authentication. But due to security concerns, we don't want to use dataadapter with basic HTTP authentication.
Please let us know if Jasper has any advanced authentication mechanisms while using a URL as a data source.
