How to enable the XML document (remote) option in DataAdapter Wizard


Hello there,

I'm using JasperSoft Studio 6.5.1 and I want to generate a report while using a REMOTE XML document as the source. I followed the steps given in this tutorial ' ' ,and on the second phase it tells how to retrieve data from a remote XML doc(for example, the newsfeed of BBC But the 'XML document(remote)' option cannot be seen in the Data Adapter Wizard. Could this be enabled? Or do I have to do a workaround to get the job done?

1 Answer:


Use the 'XML document' option as explained in the wiki article and fill in the 'File/URL' textbox your remote XML file URL: (see attachment).

Then you could click on the 'Options' button to customize settings for this data adapter.
