You'll need to go to the 'View' menu and select 'Report Fields'. (This is, of course, assuming that you have set up the data source and set it as your active connection.) In the dialog that pops up you'll need to go to the 'Fields' tab and click on 'New'. This will allow you to enter a field name and the object type. Remeber that the field name should be whatever field name you expect in the getFieldValue() method in your class that extends JRDataSource. After this, I found that I had to close down iReports, re-open it, and open the report that I was just working on for the fields to show up in the objects library.


Hope this helps. Good luck.
