custom java(wrapped exe) calls oracle stored proc but PRTG reports



Hi all, I created a custom java-based exe for use on advance\exe sensor returning resultset from a call to an oracle stored procedure (inspired by SQLspXML). When testing the executable it generates the xml from resultset and writes to standard output as expected like below sample. However, when use from PRTG via advance\exe sensor, the sensor displays PE233 error. note that I used same parameter. Now I am clueless as to what is causing this issue. Is it simply a privilege issue (PRTG call to Oracle) or somethings wrong with my xml output? Please help me. Thanks.

PRTG Error: XML: The returned xml does not match the expected schema. (code: PE233) -- JSON: The returned json does not match the expected structure (Invalid JSON.). (code: PE231)

XML output: <prtg><result><CHANNEL>ServiceName</CHANNEL><Value>20</Value></result><Text><Ok/></Text></prtg>

all good. forgot to check if a JRE is installed in the PRTG server. now running and PRTG is displaying the channels but I noticed PE018 Timeout sometimes. not sure why. When I test the code, it returns within 60seconds. so i dont get why it's being reported as timeout.
