I've used a "style" defining a custom forecolor (not awt) during my report design in iReport 3.7.3. Compiling and Previewing it in iReport works fine.
But, when i try to execute it to generate my PDF document from my JBOSS apps, I always get the following JRException :
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: No ClassLoaders found for: org.netbeans.beaninfo.editors.ColorEditor$SuperColor
WorkAround: directly use color on target elements works fine
When using styles and colours, you have to add the following JAR file to the CLASSPATH:
Where <iReport> is iReport's installation directory.
A vanilla JasperReports installation may have the same dependency.
I have the same problem. I am Using ireport 5.1.0 with UBUNTU 14.04, When I change the colour of any element in the jasper report and try to execute then following error occurs:
Message : org.netbeans.beaninfo.editors.ColorEditor$SuperColor
You have to add this org-netbeans-core.jar file to your CLASSPATH when using styles & color.
Hopefully to solve your problem.
Anyway, I have attached the required jar file.
