Hi seshasaib,

I have a similar requirement and the default xml layout report is definitely not production ready. Could you please let me know if you figured out a way to generate the jasper report in desired XML format.


Any help is greately appreciated.

I find this hard to believe, because every time I use the JRXmlExporter, it produces XML in my desired format. It is even production ready, as far as I can tell.


Now the question is, should we modify the JRXmlExporter to support seshasaib desired XML format or the one that srinu would like to see?


My guess is that the JRXmlExporter will just stay the way it is and those of you who wish the generated XML would look any different always have the option of creating your own implementations of XML exporters, maybe even reusing much of the existing one.


I hope this helps.

Hi Teodor,


This is wat i am doing inorder to generate a xml report.




JRXmlExporter jrXmlExporter = new JRXmlExporter();





And the output is an xml file where the content is exactly that of a JRXML file.


Say suppose if i want to get an xml in this fashion




Inthe above example i would like to c Dean as the root element of the xml file in output but it is showing me the <jasperPrint> as the root element. I cant show this report to my boss rt8 saying this is the xml format of report.


Is there any other parameter that i am missing to pass it.


Looking ahead for ur reply.


Thanks and regards,

Sesha sai.
