We used to be able to build our cvc component in studio versions 6.0-6.1. Now having upgraded to 6.3, we are no longer able to build (with either jdk 1.7 nor jdk 1.8.) To reproduce:
simply right click build.js , nothing happens, no error in right hand panel, no pop up window. (unresponsive).

We tried building sample cvc's and same issue--

Hi Casey,

we would need more info. It works in my case, so it could be something related to your environment.

What do you see in the Custom Visualization Component Console? It is a one of the console available in Studio.
You should see some output like:

Checking Java version
/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.7.0_75.jdk/Contents/Home/jre/bin/java -version
A valid version of Java was found
Compilation operation status:

Tracing dependencies for: sparkline


Compilation process terminated

Hey giulio,

My default system JRE set in JasperStudio 6.3.0 is 1.8.0.u77, which is set in the Jaspersoft Studio Professional.ini file automagically upon clean install:


Can we not build custom visualization components with bundled JRE?


p.s. Please note, NOTHING is generated in the console. Nothing happens at all when I click build component. No indication of a problem with the project whatsoever.
p.p.s I am Macosx sierra OS


Ok, I had to do some toggling to get the right console to show up and found this in the console:
"Can not execute the command /Applications/TIBCO Jaspersoft Studio 6.3.0.final Pro.app/Contents/Eclipse/features/jre.macosx.cocoa.x86_64.feature_1.8.0.u77/jre/Contents/Home/bin/java -version
Set the Jaspersoft Studio Property com.jaspersoft.studio.components.customvisualization.javapath with the path of the bin folder of a Java 1.7 or above

I do not see this anywhere in the community documentation. Were you aware of this requirement? (this was not an issue before i upgrade to studio 6.3)


I have the same issue using OS X Yosemite. I tried with beta version of 6.4.2 and it seems to be fixed


1. I could not create custom visualisation project in eclipse. while create project i am facing
"Plug-in "com.jaspersoft.studio.components.customvisualization" was unable to instantiate class " this issue.

2. I import open source d3.js project in my eclipse tool. while build it ok but when i click preview It shows
"could not initialize class net.sf.jasperreports.web.util.velocityutil"

Please help me to find solution for my problem.
