How to start iReport 0.2.3 Java version ?

2004-03-12 07:59

Sorry for my stupid question, but... how do i run (start) iReport 0.2.3 from my Windowsy XP system ?


Cause any .exe file is present i guess i have to run something like "Java xyz....", or not ?

Java_home i set in my env and so the path for Java, have i to set any other variable ?


I have j2sdk 1.4.2_04 installed (and also Apache-Ant)


I'm not experienced with Java apps so i am in difficult, any help would be very appreciated !

In the directory in which you installed iReport, there should be a batch file called iReport.bat. Edit the file to make sure the ENV variables define paths that match your enviromnent. Double-click the batch file to start iReport. I created a shortcut to the batch file on my quicklaunch toolbar.


iReport.bat uses ant to launch iReports. If you don't have or want to use ant, there is another batch file in a subdirectory called noant. In the noant subdirectory there is a batch file called startup.bat. My batch files look like this:


iReport.bat --


@echo off


set JAVA_HOME=C:j2sdk1.4.2_03

set ANT_HOME=C:apache-ant-1.6.1

set IREPORT_HOME=C:iReport-0.2.2


rem %ANT_HOME%binant javadocs

echo %classpath%

%ANT_HOME%binant iReport


startup.bat --


rem @echo off

cd ..


set IREPORT_HOME=C:appsiReport-0.2.2


rem Add all jars....

for %%i in (".lib*.jar") do call ".noAntcpappend.bat" %%i

java it.businesslogic.ireport.gui.MainFrame

Thank you Rick

i did not find any ireport.bat file, but i tried to create it following your example. Unfortunately it does not work: iReport does not start and i get a lot of error lines as output of the batch file (although i think my Ant installation works and the system variables are set ok).


Anyway i found the startup.bat and it works !

So i will use this to run iReport.


Thank you

I have lost to add iReport.bat. You can find it in iReport


The difference between iReport.bat and noAnt/startup.bat is that the first lunch the ant target to run iReport, the second is designed for people that don't have ANT or simply want luch iReport without it.
