Hello, we have released Jaspersoft Studio 6.21.1 with a modified BSD-type license that is limited to binary code use. As such, we are no longer able to host this as a free download on open-source software sites and have retired earlier versions.

Jaspersoft Studio is backwards compatible and allows a user to export prior work. If you have any issues moving your work to the latest edition, please post to our forum and we will do our best to assist you. 

Jaspersoft Studio community edition is still free, allowing users to continue with your developments with the latest installer.  This project is very active, our Jaspersoft team will continue to contribute to this project moving forward.

Too risky for an end-user for my MIT project, that has to build a report.

That is the BCL license, the same Oracle used back in the day for its Java SE ( Java 8?)

I think I will switch to another library, thanks anyway.

We have bundled JasperReports version 6.2.1 into our core business product and can currently not upgrade this as there is always a risk of conflicting libraries. As of now it's impossible for developers or customers to develop reports using JasperSoft Studio 6.2.1 as the software is unavailable. Using a more recent version of JasperSoft Studio like 6.21.1 is no option as reports developed with this version will not run against the bundled 6.2.1 version. For most of our customers it's also not possible to install the software using an executable, hence the need of the installation using the ZIP-file.

We have been using the Jasper software for about 15 years now (since iReports) and it would be a pity if we would have to look for a different reporting tool as this would mean a lot of work to integrate this with out core business product.

Hi Dila, thank you for your message.

You can use the latest version of Jaspersoft Studio to create jrxml compatible with any version of JasperReports. To be sure that the produced jrxml will work with your specific JasperReports version, set the Jaspersoft Studio compatibility from the Preferences:

About the zip version of Jaspersoft Studio CE 6.21.1, this is definitively something we can provide in the set of available downloads.

Hope this helps

Giulio

@dila, Our commercial edition has a lot of additional features and value added capabilities while also providing legal protections and professional support to your core business product. Our team would love to learn more about your use case and share more details. Would you be available for a brief conversation? If so, can you please give me a thumbs up or send me a message? I would love to reach out to you via email and coordinate a convenient time.  Thank you!

We use the same library 6.2.1, but Compatibility settings is not sufficient, because we also need to precomile and deploy subreports in contrast to main reports. Older compiler versions are not possible to installt due to different bugs (6.20.6). Therefor we and out customers can only use studio 6.2.1. We also need the zip version to install maven plugin and distribute preconfigured studio.

We provide a free download of the latest version on our community site and are unable to provide previous installers. A commerical edition  license provides access to the source code, you can take a free trial to experience the added features and functionality here.

Will the history of installers provided be provided on the download site as of now (as of version 6.21.2)?
