    The components and versions listed in this section are required to build and run JasperReports Server:

    Check Your Java JDK
    Check Your Maven Version

    Check Your Java JDK

    You can compile the JasperReports Server source code under Java 1.7. JasperReports Server does not run with versions of Java earlier than 1.7.

    To check the version of your JDK (Java Development Kit), run the following command:

    javac -version

    To download the Java JDK, follow the instructions on the Java web site: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html.

    The Oracle/Sun JDK is the certified Java platform for JasperReports Server. OpenJDK 1.7 is also supported.

    Check Your Maven Version

    We use Apache Maven to compile, build, and package the JasperReports Server source code because of its ability to manage third party dependencies via online repositories.

    To download and install Maven go to: http://maven.apache.org/download.html#installation

    To execute mvn from the command line, put the maven binary (mvn or mvn.exe) in your environment PATH. To check your Maven version, run this command:

    mvn -version

    For information about Maven, see Maven Troubleshooting.
