Date input: previous month, previous week, date to date.


Recommended Posts



I am currently creating a report in jaspersoft studio which will eventually be published on the jaspersoft server. For the report I would like it to prompt for a date. The option I want to include are previous week, previous month and just date tot date. 


The date to date part is already workin. I made 2 parameters (start_date and end_date) and made them work in my query. 

The query is looking something like this:

count(*) 'Total Alarms',
sum(case when condition_id like '1' then 1 else 0 end )as 'Total Minor Alarms',
sum(case when condition_id like '2' then 1 else 0 end )as 'Total Major Alarms',
sum(case when condition_id like '3' then 1 else 0 end )as 'Total Critical Alarms'
from alarminfo
 alarminfo.set_time>=$P{start_date} AND alarminfo.set_time<$P{end_date}


You can see in the last line my 2 parameters. Now I also want the report to prompt a previous week and previous month option. I already searched and read quite a lot artikels and topics, but i still cannot implement it to what I need. Does anyone have an idea?

Jasper has tons of built in support for dynamic date ranges, this is a common problem with a common solution. In fact, Jasper Reports has a specific "DateRange" type that can do a lot of the heavy lifting for you. Handles things like "Date +1 week" etc.

I have read a few of articles on the community but I fail to implement them. 


For now I have 2 variables: firstdayoflastmonth and lastdayoflastmonth

for firstdayoflastmonth I  am using this code:

    $P{cal}.set($P{runDate}.getYear()+1900, $P{runDate}.getMonth(), $P{runDate}.getDate()) ||
    $P{cal}.add(Calendar.MONTH, -1) ||
    $P{cal}.set(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH, 1)
? null : $P{cal}.getTime()


I aslo created 2 parameters: runDate with value expression new Date()

and cal with value expression Calendar.getInstance()

When I run the report, I get this error:

    $P{cal}.set($P{runDate}.getYear()+1900, $P{runDate}.getMonth(), $P{runDate}.getDate()) ||
