Can we export AFP file from jasper reports?

Recommended Posts


I have created AFP file  using Jasper report  by using below code  and it is able to open in web browser but not in AFP Work Bench Viewer.  .

 private static String destFileName = "sample.afp";

 JasperExportManager.exportReportToPdfFile(jasperPrint, destFileName);

Your timely support on this  appreciated

Hello, I am not aware of an AFP exporter in JasperReports, have you implemented your own JREporter implementation for .afp files?
Looking at your code:

private static String destFileName = "sample.afp";JasperExportManager.exportReportToPdfFile(jasperPrint, destFileName);

it seems that you are exporting the report to a PDF file called sample.afp. I'm not sure the AFP Work Bennch Viewer can convert PDF files into a workable format.

To export your report to an AFP format you need to build a custom exporter for it as described in the JasperReports Ultimate Guide (p.246 of https://community.jaspersoft.com/sites/default/files/docs/jasperreports-ultimate-guide-3v2_0.pdf p.234 without counting the index).

I hope this helps
