Connect to the Jasper Reports samples database on localhost

Go to solution Solved by kkumlien,

I am trying to connect to the hsqldb database that is running on localhost.  I can connect through the runManager fine, but when I try to connect through a jasper reports adapter and hit "Test" I get an error below.

When using the runmanager for hsqldb:

HSQL Database Engine Server
user: sa
password: empty

But when connecting through the database jdbc connector, this does not work:

Password: empty

In the jasper client:

net.sf.jasperreports.engine.JRException: java.sql.SQLTransientConnectionException: connection exception: connection failure: java.io.EOFException

And even on the server side, I see this error on the hsql

I was able to create a jdbc data adapter with the following settings and connect and print values from address table in a report. I've tested using Jaspersoft Studio 6.6.0 and hsqldb in JasperReports 6.8.0.

Note that hsqldb in JasperReports 6.8.0 is version 2.4.0. Jaspersoft Studio 6.6.0 is also using 2.4.0. They should match. If the server and client version do not match, you may get error.

JDBC Driver: org.hsqldb.jdbcDriver

JDBC Url: jdbc:hsqldb:hsql://localhost

Username: sa


1. I open a console in demo/hsqldb directory

2. Execute "ant"

3. Open Jaspersoft Studio 6.6.0 and create a Data Adapter with the above information and clicked on the "Test" button. Returned "Success".

4. Created JasperReports report and used the created data adapter with "SELECT * FROM address".

5. Put all fields in the details band.

6. Did a preview and all data were displayed in my report.

I am using the "demo" samples from jasper reports.  It is clear that the hsqldb is running  as  standalone server.  For example:





//Change these settings according to your local configuration
            String driver = "org.hsqldb.jdbcDriver";
            String connectString = "jdbc:hsqldb:hsql://localhost";
            String user = "sa";
            String password = "";
