Hi,

 

first, stop posting every thread with "URGENT"... what is not urgent anybody is posting here!?!?!?

 

I don't know what you want with PDF, doesn't work the JRExporter or what do you mean?

 

Try this method... that print's into a PDF also:

 

JasperPrintManager myJPM = new JasperPrintManager();

myJPM.printReportToPdfFile(jasperPrint,"C:/test.pdf");

 

where "jasperPrint" holds your filled report.

If you want to show it directly in Acrobat, that's another topic what is not related with JasperReport at all.. the goal is the PDF-file... what you do with it is your part, isn't it?

It depends on your environment.

 

Give us a (simple) scenario. It's more than likely someone out here is doing something similar and can give you some pointers.

 

JasperReports is just a way to GENERATE the report. HowWhyWhenWhere you display the report is completely up to you and your application.

After creating the pdf file (in windows):

 

Runtime.getRuntime().exec("rundll32 shell32.dll,ShellExec_RunDLL " + reportsPath + reportName + ".pdf");

 

This works if acrobat viewer is installed.

what's d other solution to this?

Runtime.getRuntime().exec("rundll32 shell32.dll,ShellExec_RunDLL " + reportsPath + reportName + ".pdf");

 

i've tried this but there's an error in accessing d file... the error is something like file does not exist... but if i do it outside my program, the pdf file works... why?

 

what if i'm running it in solaris?

 

Thanks!

> why?

 

Problem between chair and keyboard.

 

Possible steps to reduce the symptoms:

 

Log the command line and check that it has no errors.

 

Before invoking exec log the result of new File(reportsPath + reportName + ".pdf").exists() and verify that the file does indeed exist.

 

Post a code excerpt.
