How to retrieve an online XML file ? was created by Nicolas Verscheure
Sometimes, it can be useful to retrieve an online XML file. Nevertheless, it is not possible to add an XML metadata and set the online URL.
An alternative solution consists to add an BeanShell shell on your process and to set scripting language to "javascript" and to use the following code :

var url = java.net.URL("http://api.wunderground.com/api/9028253e5a3ba47e/history_20120910/lang:FR/q/zmw:00000.259.07015.xml");
var str = com.indy.engine.common.CommonUtils.inputStreamToString(url.openStream());
var fw = java.io.FileWriter("/tmp/test.xml");

If you are running the process through a proxy, you must adapt your code :

var addr = new java.net.InetSocketAddress("webcache.mydomain.com", 8080);
var proxy = new java.net.Proxy(java.net.Proxy.Type.HTTP, addr);
var url = java.net.URL("http://api.wunderground.com/api/9028253e5a3ba47e/history_20120910/lang:FR/q/zmw:00000.259.07015.xml");
var connection = url.openConnection(proxy);
var s = new java.lang.String("user"+":"+"password");
connection.setRequestProperty("Proxy-Authorization", "Basic " + org.apache.xerces.impl.dv.util.Base64.encode(s.getBytes()));
var str = com.indy.engine.common.CommonUtils.inputStreamToString(connection.getInputStream());
var fw = java.io.FileWriter("/tmp/test.xml");
