Hello members of the BIRT Community!

I'm requred to create a custom XML data source UI extension. That means, I'm required to provide a custom data source ui (something like 'Xml from our proprietary system') and a custom master, allowing to select xml from from out storage. But the result of the master should be a normal BIRT xml data source.

I've read documentation about creatig custom Data Sources, but sadly, no pointers to 'how to reuse existing data source'.

Can someone point me, how to create data source of existing type, using custom UI?

Thanks in advance!

You could download the source and use code from the current XML data source in your data source. Though, you should be able to import the classes for the xml data source into your class and just use them to process the results of your code. However, I've not tried this before, so I don't have an example.
