Getting Started with IReport 0.2.3

2004-03-22 12:57

Hi,

 

I was wondering how to get IReport up and running once I download the ireport jar file.

 

Thanks

Did you just download the jar file ? I was under the impression that when you download iReport, you get a whole directory tree.. If you do have the whole tree, then:

 

1. Apparently, you need a JRE/JDK to run it.

2. If you have Ant, you can run iReport.bat or iReport.sh (depending on the platform)

3. Better yet, you can always run the startup.bat/startup.sh in the noAnt subdirectory.

 

If you want to run iReport right off the jar file and all the necessary libraries (including iReport.jar) are in your classpath you can probably run:

java it.businesslogic.ireport.gui.MainFrame (taken from startup.bat)

Hi,

I donwloaded the following file

 

iReport-0.2.3.1.zip (java implementiation)

 

It contains a batch file iReport.bat with the following line at the end

 

%ANT_HOME%binant iReport

 

But there is no build.xml in the zip archive.

Did it ever work in the past?

Ehmm.. well you know... :-) I should visit my optician.

 

I did the following and it works.

 

1) unpack 0.2.3

2) unpack 0.2.3.1 over it (overwrite existing files)

3) start it with the following batch file

 

@echo off

if "%1"=="" goto startup

set CP=%CP%;%1

goto end

:startup

set CP=.classes

for %%i in (".lib*.jar") do call %0 %%i

for %%i in (".lib*.zip") do call %0 %%i

for %%i in (".db_drivers*.jar") do call %0 %%i

for %%i in (".db_drivers*.zip") do call %0 %%i

start javaw -cp %CP% it.businesslogic.ireport.gui.MainFrame

set CP=

:end

 

Regards,

Michel

I'm not fully sure Michael, but don't you need to download version 0.2.3 before downloading 0.2.3.1?

 

Thanks, Alex for your earlier answer. I have a follow-up question:

 

I just downloaded the 0.2.3.1 jar file and need to incorporate it into the existing 0.2.3 that I have running already. How do I do that?

I'm pretty certain you need to install 0.2.3 before applying 0.2.3.1. So, basically, here is what you have to do:

1. Download ireport 0.2.3. Unzip into a directory.

2. Download ireport 0.2.3.1. Unzip into a temp directory, then copy the content of the 0.2.3.1 archive over the 0.2.3 installation (accept on all overwrite messages).

 

This is what I did - I am not exactly sure if this is the right way to go, but it seems to be working for me.

It works. As you advised, I unzipped 0.2.3.1 over 0.2.3.

 

Thanks Alex, Michael.
