Templates in a jar

2005-11-30 19:43

I keep trying this with each new release, but still cannot get the report wizard to find templates that are in a jar. The latest 0.5.2 release doesn't seem to support it even though the 1.1 manual states if a template jar is in the classpath, the templates it contains will be made available to the wizard.


If anyone has a sample template jar, I would greatly appreciate a copy of it to see it's structure. The manual is confusing because it in a couple of places the name of the descriptor XML in the jar for the templates should be named 'template.xml' and in another reference it states it should be 'templates.xml'. Which one is correct?


This shouldn't be so difficult, but accessing templates from the classpath has never seemed to work.

The right name is template.xml.

Here is an example:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>


<iReportTemplate name="Classic Template Resource" type="Columnar">

Thanks. That is exactly the format I have, but iReport will still NOT find them if they are in a jar in the classpath. Are you sure it works?

I'll try again...


I still cannot get iReport to find templates in a jar in the classpath. Has anyone been able to do this with the 0.5.2 release?
