after reading the tutorials below:
- Build reports based on XML datasource using the iReport Designer
- XML Datasources in Jaspersoft Studio
- XML Datasources
- Remote XML Datasource
- Using XML Datasource in JasperReports Server
I finally get a report with a remote xml data source to run on the server and to output it in the browser using the webservice rest_v2/reports/.
What I didn't find in the tutorials, is how to pass a new value for the report parameter XML_URL and what webservice to use for. But it is mentioned something like:
When the report is executed inside an application, the URL can be set dynamically with a parameter XML_URL.
Does anybody have experience with passing the xml_url through a webservice and would be nice to point me in a direction? I'm using the JasperReports Server CE 5.2.0
Thank you, Marius
