Thanks for ur reply srinivas

 

I was about to use the table datasource

 

now I ve started to fetch data in two tablemodels that are to be passed to the master report and subreport respectively

I dont know how to interconnect the subreport with tbe main report

 

shall i use the JRDesignSubreports class here?

if it is so where could i pass this object to the mainreport.

 

my snippets are

 

TableModel model = fetcher.fetchData();

JRDataSource dataSrc = new JRTableModelDataSource(model);

JasperPrint print = JasperFillManager.fillReport(jasp,null,dataSrc);

 

now where cud i say about the subreports here

 

pls help me out

 

 

Thanks and regards

sathya

You don't need to specify the subreport when filling. Just make sure your main report has a subreport expression that points to the subreport and a data source expression to pass the data source in.

1. Create instance of JRDesignSubreport

2. Use setExpression to set the <subreportExpression> part of the XML.

3. Use setDataSourceExpression to set the <dataSourceExpression> part of the XML.

4. Set whatever else attributes you want.

5. Add it to a band on the main report.

 

Look up the quick reference on what those expressions are for and do some tests. You'll learn better through error.

1. Create instance of JRDesignSubreport -->

 

JRDesignSubreport subreport = new JRDesignSubreport();

JRDesignSubreportParameter subParam = new JRDesignSubreportParameter();

subParam.setName("Resourceid");

JRDesignExpression exp = new JRDesignExpression();

exp.addFieldChunk("RESOURCEID");

subParam.setExpression(exp);

// add the parameters to the subreport

subreport.addParameter(subParam);

 

IS THE FIRST STEP OK??

 

2. Use setExpression to set the <subreportExpression> part of the XML.-->

 

subreport.setExpression(JRExpression);

 

3. Use setDataSourceExpression to set the <dataSourceExpression> part of the XML.-->

 

exp = new JRDesignExpression(); exp.addParameterChunk("REPORT_DATASOURCE");

// add it to the subreport

subreport.setDataSourceExpression(exp);

 

IS IT RIGHT???

IF IS WRONG HOW TO SET THE EXPRESSION?

 

4. Set whatever else attributes you want.

 

??

5. Add it to a band on the main report.

??
