JRRuntimeException: Missing JasperReports PDF Extension

Recommended Posts


I'm using community edition of Jaspersoft Studio and have created a very simple template which I am using in my Spring boot application. When I try to create the report, the application breaks with the exception net.sf.jasperreports.engine.JRRuntimeException: Missing JasperReports PDF Extension (jasperreports-pdf-x.x.x.jar) when calling the method JasperExportManager.exportReportToPdf. Can someone tell me what am I doing wrong?

ma jrxml file:

<!-- Created with Jaspersoft Studio version 7.0.0.final using JasperReports Library version 7.0.0-b478feaa9aab4375eba71de77b4ca138ad2f62aa  -->

my service for pdf creation:


public class JasperReportService
    private static final Logger log = LoggerFactory.getLogger(JasperReportService.class);

    public byte[] fetchMachineReport(MachinesInfo machinesInfo) throws Exception
        JasperReport jasperReport;

        try {

            jasperReport = (JasperReport) JRLoader.loadObject(ResourceUtils.getFile("machine.jrxml"));

        } catch (FileNotFoundException | JRException e) {

            try {

                File file = ResourceUtils.getFile("classpath:machine.jrxml");

                jasperReport = JasperCompileManager.compileReport(file.getAbsolutePath());

                JRSaver.saveObject(jasperReport, "machine.jasper");

            } catch (FileNotFoundException | JRException e1) {

                throw new Exception("System error!");



        // JRBeanCollectionDataSource dataSource   = new JRBeanCollectionDataSource(machinesInfo.machineList());
        Map<String, Object> parametersMap   = new HashMap<>();
        JasperPrint         jasperPrint     = null;
        byte[]              pdfReport       = null;

        InputStream brandLogoInputStream = new ByteArrayInputStream(machinesInfo.machineList().get(0).machinePicture());

        parametersMap.put("brandLogo", brandLogoInputStream);
        parametersMap.put("machineName", machinesInfo.machineList().get(0).machineModel());

        try {

            jasperPrint = JasperFillManager.fillReport(jasperReport, parametersMap, new JREmptyDataSource());
            pdfReport   = JasperExportManager.exportReportToPdf(jasperPrint);

        } catch (JRException | JRRuntimeException e) {

            throw new Exception("System error!");


        return pdfReport;

You need to add a dependency to jasperreports-pdf 7.0.0 in your project, see at https://central.sonatype.com/artifact/net.sf.jasperreports/jasperreports-pdf/overview



Hi Lucian,

thank you for you answer but that's exactly what I have done and I got this exception. As I said, after I have added the dependency to  the version 6.20.6 I got rid of this exception.
