    Default XML input from URL

    Hi,

    Is it possible to use XML input from a URL as opposed to a file on the local file system? Need to load data from a REST web service which returns the data in XML into database for reporting.

    If it not currently possible, is it possible to extend the XML input step to include this and where can I find further information on this?

    Thanks,
    Ainga

    Default

    As of 2.5 XMLInput is VFS enabled... just use the URL as filename. Previously a solution would be to get the file with jobentry http and then process the local file.

    Regards,
    Sven
