Image location in j2ee web application?

2003-04-27 19:18

Hi, I am having trouble deciding how to reference an image in a report when used in a j2ee web application. I have changed the string value to a path such as "./logo.jpg". Using iReport i can compile and preview the report. When i deploy the engine reports i t cannot find "./image.jpg".


Where shouldI place images for Jasper when I am deploying and how do I reference them. I have a constantly changing deployment path so it would need to be context sensative.

The best way to reference images or subreports

is to place them into the classpath.

They will be loaded as resources at runtime when

filling the reports.


If you have an image into a directory like this:




reference it like this:




but make sure that the /imagerepository directory

is part of the classpath when you fill your reports.


In the "webapp" sample we used a different approach.

There we have a report parameter that points to the

base directory that contains the images.


I hope this helps.
