Can I use a clone install of JasperReports Server with JBoss AS7/EAP6?


Recommended Posts


Using JBoss 5.1, you can clone your JasperReports Server install  by copying an existing JRS WAR file to a new JBoss instance. While this method isn’t strictly supported, some users have experienced good results.

The question is this: will the same method work when JasperReports Server 5.1 is hosted by JBoss AS7/EAP6?

The short answer is no.

This procedure does not work for JBoss AS7/EAP6 because, in addition to the JasperReports Server web application and the repository contents, Jaspersoft’s buildomatic creates a new module (jaspersoft.org.apache.batik) under the JBoss modules directory.  If this module is not present, deployment will fail.

(Please note that JBoss AS7/EAP6 is not  supported with JasperReports Server versions earlier than 5.1.)

in addition to copying the module /modules/jaspersoft/org/apache/batik to the target server, you should also merge the configuration file:

It is not advised to overwrite the existing descriptor if the target host is not a freshly installed JBoss instance as you may lose any special settings that are present in the existing target descriptor.


The new lines that you want to merge are under the section and look like:
