Hyperlink to an external file


Recommended Posts

I am running JasperReports on JBoss. I need to hyperlink one of the report columns to an external file. The file is on a Unix machine, outside of my server/application setup.


I am trying create a 'Reference' hyperlink with this expression:


$P{Path}+$P{FileName}+".html" where


$P{Path} = home/reports/

$P{FileName} = reportFile


This resolves to:




but the file is not found.


What am I doing wrong?

I had the same problem as I wanted to put all the reports into the database. Now I think I'll put them on the file system.


What you can do is to retrieve the content of the external file and put it into a local tmp file which is put to jasper as a parameter.
