Remote XML Datasource in JasperReports Server 5.5?

I am unable to get a remote XML datasource to work in JasperReports Server 5.5.  It works fine in studio.  I've followed allong with several examples that I found, including the Twitter API example, that indicate you need to define the XML_URL paramter.  I do that within my report and the server debug output still displays the following:


2013-11-12 10:29:16,687 DEBUG JRXPathQueryExecuter,pool-4-thread-7:106 - XPath query: /list/table5Item
2013-11-12 10:29:16,687  WARN JRXPathQueryExecuter,pool-4-thread-7:128 - No XML source was provided.
A test jrxml is attached that works correctly in studio and fails in the server is attached. . .
Any suggestions?

Have you looked at the custom data source stuff in the Ultimate Guide?  I don't think it's fully up-to-date, but it might get you started.

Just as you posted this I figured it out . . . was not using the correct extension jar. Version I had had no XML_URL field defined. jasperreports-extensions-3.5.3.jar placed in the lib folder and all is working . . .
