Charts within Java app: Data but no chart

2004-12-21 15:05



I'm using iReport 0.4.0 with jasperreports 0.6.3 (I copied 0.6.3 into the iReports installation so that both are running the same version...I hope that's OK).


I created a report in iReport that has data and a chart in it. It runs fine in iReport. In my java app the report comes up without any errors and the data shows just fine. The chart does not come up.


The .jrxml file contains the following line:


<imageExpression class="java.awt.Image"><![CDATA[(java.awt.Image)it.businesslogic.ireport.chart.DefaultChartFactory.drawChart(new String[]{"antialias=true","tooltips=false","legend=false","chartName=Pie","plotOrientation=2","foregroundAlpha=0.33","valueLabel=","subtitle=","plotBackground=[255,255,255]","quality=2","height=453","titlePosition=1","chartBackground=[255,255,255]","width=420","depthFactor=0.2","serie1=SERIE_SO_COUNT","serie0=SERIE_ZIP","categoryLabel=","title="}, (it.businesslogic.ireport.IReportScriptlet)$P{REPORT_SCRIPTLET})]]></imageExpression> </image>


In my app, I find the scriptlet specified in the .jrxml file and am able to instantiate it just fine. I then put it into the parameters, like so:



Class clazz = Class.forName(jasperReport.getScriptletClass());

iReportScriptlet = (IReportScriptlet)clazz.newInstance();

if (iReportScriptlet != null) {

parameters.put(JRParameter.REPORT_SCRIPTLET, iReportScriptlet);



jasperPrint = JasperFillManager.fillReport(jasperReport, parameters, jrDataSource);



Any clues as to why the chart doesn't show?

The scriptlet is instanced by JasperReports itself.

Check you have the it.businesslogic.chart.* in your app and all jar to create the chart too.

Did you mean to type




instead of




If so, then yes, its on my classpath. If not...where is it.


I take it I can take out my code which instantiates the servlet then. jasperreports will instantiate it for me?


Any other ideas then as to why my charts won't display. Instantiating the scriptlet was a guess on my part that the DefaultChartFactory.drawChart() code wasn't seeing the scriptlet. Without any other error messages being thrown I don't know what to look for.
