Boolean expressions

Is it posible to make 2 boolean expressions at <printWhenExpression> tag ?


I've got an error when I try to compile tag as follow::


<printWhenExpression>new Boolean(($F{FieldName1} != "0") && ($F{FieldName2} != null))</printWhenExpression>

You could write anything you want in

a JasperReports expression as long as

it represents a valid Java expression

that returns the required type.


For "printWhenExpression" the only condition that

applies is that the returned value should be of

java.lang.Boolean type.


However, make sure you compare your

java.util.String variables right.


When comparing two String objects, you should

use "equals()" and not "!=" or "==" operators.


So, your expressions should go like this:



new Boolean( !("0".equals($F{FieldName1})) && ($F{FieldName2} != null) )



Good luck!

Sorry for make much questions, but I've still got the error.


Parse Fatal Error at line -1 column -1: The entity name must immediately follow the '&' in the entity reference.


and it was run when the logical "&&" turn into "||", look like this::


new Boolean( !("0".equals($F{FieldName1})) || ($F{FieldName2} != null) )


Thanks for you help

Sorry, my mistake.


'&' is a special character that is interpreted

by the XML parser.

To avoid this, put the expression between

a sequence like the following:




new Boolean( !("0".equals($F{FieldName1})) && ($F{FieldName2} != null) )




Good luck!
