XML Data Integration step fails after upgrade from 8.0 to 8.2

Question asked by Doug Beattie on Apr 24, 2019

We are in the process of upgrading from Data Integration 8.0 to 8.2. We have ironed out most of the issues, but I don't have an answer for this one. One of our transformations is fed a list of URLs. In the transformation, the URLs come in as a variable to an XML Input Stream (StAX) object as follows:

 

 

This works fine in 8.0. However, in 8.2 the object has begun to prefix the URL with "file:///C:/Pentaho/data-integration/", And we end up with the following error:

 

Could not read from "file:///C:/Pentaho/data-integration/http:/water.weather.gov/ahps2/hydrograph_to_xml.php?gage=vckm6&output=xml" because it is not a file.

 

Well, obviously, LOL. On the StAX object there is no option to force it to treat the variable as a URL. Is this functionality no longer valid in 8.2?

 

Thank you for any help.
