reverse jasper to xml

2003-08-19 11:56

Hi,

Due to my HD crashed, I lost my report xml files. However, I still got *.jasper files. Is there a way to reverse jasper file to xml.

 

Regards,

michael

Thank you for quick response. I got error on first line

"Cannot convert from JasperDesign tp JasperReport"

 

Please advise,

Yes:

 

JasperReport jasperReport = JasperManager.loadDesign("Whatever.jasper");

 

JRXmlWriter.writeReport(jasperReport, "Whatever.xml");

Sorry, want relying on memory. Try this:

 

try {

JasperReport jasperReport = JasperManager.loadReport("Whatever.jasper");

dori.jasper.engine.xml.JRXmlWriter.writeReport(jasperReport, "Whatever.xml");

} catch (dori.jasper.engine.JRException jasperException) {

jasperException.printStackTrace();

}

One last sorry. This code WILL work.

 

try {

JasperReport jasperReport = JasperManager.loadReport(fileIn);

dori.jasper.engine.xml.JRXmlWriter.writeReport(jasperReport, fileOut, "UTF8");

} catch (dori.jasper.engine.JRException jasperException) {

jasperException.printStackTrace();

}

Now I got this error

 

[java] java.io.InvalidClassException: dori.jasper.engine.base.JRBaseReport; local class incompatible: stream classdesc serialVersionUID = 406, local class serialVersionUID = 405

 

at this line:

JasperReport jasperReport = JasperManager.loadReport("WebappReport.jasper");

 

Please Advise

 

Thanks

That error means you are trying to use a different version of JasperReports than the one the .jasper file was created with.

So is this to say that only .jasper files created with the version of Jasper on the server will work? No back-wards compatibility here?

 

This would appear to be a major problem.

This time I got compiled error:

 

[java] java.lang.Error: Unresolved compilation problem:

[java] The method writeReport(JRReport) in the type JRXmlWriter is not

applicable for the arguments (JasperReport, String, String)

I can no longer help you, then. The code I gave you (the last one) I tested myself and it worked. Here it is again:

 

public static void recreateJasperXML(String fileIn, String fileOut) {

try {

JasperReport jasperReport = JasperManager.loadReport(fileIn);

dori.jasper.engine.xml.JRXmlWriter.writeReport(jasperReport, fileOut, "UTF8");

} catch (dori.jasper.engine.JRException jasperException) {

jasperException.printStackTrace();

}

}

Thanks all your help. I will get correct jasperreport and try it again.

I found out I do have one last thing to add. The code I gave you will only work for a report compiled by JasperReports v0.5.0, to get the same code to work with JasperReports v0.4.6, omit the "UTF8" parameter from the writeReport method.
