I just take over some project which is about jasper reports. The problem is that all that I have are reports on the jasperserver (3.5) repository.
Yes, you can edit the reports in the repository and save them back to the repository. Attached is section 4.4.7 of the 3.5 JasperServer User's Guide that explains how to do it.
When you double click on the JRXML file, the JRXML is extracted from the repository and stored in a local copy into the directory <USER_HOME>/.ireport/jstmp. The server gives the file a temporary name (like file_123112312.jrxml).
The JRXML source is automatically opened in iReport.
To restore the modified file on the server, save it in iReport, then select the file entry in the iReport repository tree, and click the save icon on the iReport plugin toolbar (see image of this icon in section 4.4.7).
