Incorporating Jasper in Applets only?

2002-10-13 15:44

Hi, I'm just reading over this tool so far but it looks like I could use it. Is there a way to use it with just applets? I don't have any XML or HTML with my program.

 

Thanks,

Shawn

You just need a word processing program(notepad) to edit your own xml report-design file. Then, use this JR tool to generate the pdf report file. You can apply this tool to your application and applet too.

Hi,

 

Could you be more precise?

What exactly are you trying to do?

 

Thank you,

Teodor

I'd be glad to explain further. I'm developing an information system (specifically a Reservation system) for my senior project. There is no implementation, I just have to demonstrate it.

 

So I've created a program with several applets which I will run from BlueJ, the IDE I'm using. So rather than some Java Apps with their XML and HTML files incorporated in the project, mine only has applets and other classes.

 

I have an Access database and I'm using JDBC to connect to it.

 

Please let me know if you have any further questions. I appreciate your help and any details you can give me in order to put Jasper Reporting in my program.

 

Thanks,

Shawn

Hi,

 

I don't say it cannot be done.

 

But first you have to be aware of all the restriction

applets have, like security restictions and stuff.

 

I'm not an expert in Java applets, but it seem to

me that the difficulties you are going to encouter

will be related to those applet restrictions and not

to the JasperReports library itself.

 

Try to create an applet that reads something from

a file on your computer. After succeeding that,

you'll be ready to use JasperReports in applets

as you wish.

 

Thank you,

Teodor

Done. My program is already connected to an Access database through JDBC with no problems querying and updating.

 

Can I get some instructions on how to start using JasperReports in my applets?

 

Thanks!

Shawn

Hi,

 

You've done what?

 

I didn't say connecting to a database through JDBC

would be a problem when working with applets.

 

I said trying to read or write files on disk would

pose some security problems.

Have you passed them?

 

I point you to do this because JasperReports works

very much with files and if there's something that

should go wrong, then this would be it.

 

Thank you,

Teodor

Since you didn't specify, I assumed "reading and writing files on disk" would include a database file.

 

I'll have to expirement with it some. Perhaps this is the wrong tool for me.

 

Again, if anyone has some instructions on where to begin installation of Jasper, I would greatly appreciate it.

 

Thanks Teodor,

 

Shawn
