If i put this link in the browser i can access it (i have to put a username and a password - that i can give to you guys to test it), when i create the data source web service data source i dont have the wsld and i put the link in the SOAP END POINT and i test the connection and i have PING succedded but i dont put the username and the password anywhere and when i create the data set i cannot see my data values.

i already put jar files in my eclipse folder:

and then in my eclipse data source was created a new entry Restapi Data Source, then i put the link in the HttpRequest and when i test the connection it ask me for a username and a password but i couldnĀ“t connect.

Are you still needing assistance with this issue?
Do you see any errors after entering the username and password with the REST ODA when it doesn't work?

Going through this same issue. Are you able to find a solution?

I am using the REST API Oda plugin for Birt.

However, while creating the data source from an API, and trying to test connection through the httpRequests, it gives a ping failed message with following error message:

Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException

Would be of immense help if you guys can help me out here. It is almost 3 weeks now that I am stuck on this.
