Xpress NonLinear

Is there a package in the JuMP ecosystem providing an interface to FICO Xpress NonLinear solver?

Xpress.jl seems to support only Xpress Optimizer.
If I try to use Xpress.jl to solve a non-convex NLP, I get the following error:
“ERROR: LoadError: The solver does not support nonlinear problems (i.e., NLobjective and NLconstraint)”.

I tried also to use AmplNLWriter

model = Model(() -> AmplNLWriter.Optimizer("amplxpress"))

but it seems that amplxpress only supports Xpress Optimizer
“XPRESS 39.01.01: Sorry, XPRESS 39.01.01 cannot handle a non-quadratic nonlinear objective”

The same problem is solved correctly when feeding the corresponding .nl file to Xpress Console Optimizer, so the issue is not in the solver.

Xpress does not solve non linear models. FICO Xpress NonLinear is actually the solver Knitro.
