Components Required for Source Build

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 Application Server
Check Your Database Instance
Check Your Chrome/Chromium Installation

Check Your Java JDK

You must compile the JasperReports Server source code under Java 1.8. 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 1.8 is also supported.

IBM JDK 8 is not supported.

Check Your Maven Version

We use Apache Maven 3.8.1 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.

Check Your Application Server

To run JasperReports Server, you need an application server on the same computer as your source code. We support the following application servers:

Application Server

Check Your Database Instance

To run JasperReports Server, you need a database instance. We support the following:

Database

Comments

DB2 The jasperserver database must be created by the DB administrator.

Check Your Chrome/Chromium Installation

To build JasperReports Server, you need to install Chrome, Chromium, or any other browser based on Chromium like Microsoft Edge, and set the property chrome.path in default_master.properties. See the TIBCO JasperReports Server Administrator Guide for more information about Chrome/Chromium.
