    TIBCO JasperReports® Server 6.2.1 Release


    JasperReports Server is a high-performance standalone or embeddable Business Intelligence (BI) platform that provides rich reporting and integrated in-memory analysis capabilities.

    These release notes describe the installation and available functionality at a high level; for details, please refer to the online help. Please also refer to the documentation, which is available at: http://community.jaspersoft.com/documentation or at <js-install>/docs after installation. In particular, refer to the Installation Guide for instructions about running the installer, creating and updating the database, and deploying the WAR file; refer to the Upgrade Guide for instructions on upgrading from previous versions.

    Note: JasperReports Server is governed by a License Agreement, the text of which is found at <js-install>/Jaspersoft-Subscription-Services-Agreement.txt. Please read it before you login to JasperReports Server for the first time. If you installed the server using the installer binary (rather than deploying a WAR file), you have already agreed to this license.

    What's New

    JasperReports Server 6.2.1 includes these improvements:

    • Data Connectivity - We continue to improve and refine data access in JasperReports Server. This release adds:
      • Support for Kerberos Authentication for MongoDB data sources.
      • New JDBC drivers for Impala and Cassandra data sources. We recommend using the JDBC driver for new Cassandra data sources and the native Cassandra driver only for existing data sources.
      • A driver for Salesforce data sources can be added to JasperReports Server.
      • Support for these big data solutions:
        • Hortonworks HDP 1.3-2.3
        • CDH 4.5.x- 5.5
        • Apache Cassandra 2.0-2.2
        • MongoDB 2.6 - 3.0
        • Cloudera Impala 1.3 - 2.0
    • New Supported Platforms - This release adds support for:
      • Operating Systems: Microsoft Windows 10; note that Microsoft Edge is also supported with this release.
      • Application Servers: WildFly 8.2.0
    • New Advanced Chart Formatting Options -  This release adds support for three-dimensional pie and bar charts, as well as solid gauges. In the Ad Hoc Editor, apply these effects using the Advanced tab of the Chart Formatting dialog. For more information, see: http://community.jaspersoft.com/wiki/advanced-chart-formatting

    • Jaspersoft Studio - Our advanced report designer has several improvements, including:
      • Usability and interface improvements, including improvements to crosstabs, particularly when working with row and column groups; improvements to the UI for the Maps and TIBCO Maps components; improvements to the community-supported Custom Visualization Component.
      • Commercial versions of Jaspersoft Studio now include the SIMBA JDBC drivers for Impala and Cassandra. The Cloudera driver for Impala has been removed from Jaspersoft Studio; it is available as a plug-in on SourceForge.
      • If you are using your reports with an application you have built using JasperReports Library, you can use the Window > Preferences > Compatibility Setting to choose the version of JasperReports Library to use for compiling reports. This does not affect reports uploaded to JasperReports Server, which are still set by configuring the settings for each server.
    • Documentation improvements - To improve the API documentation of JasperReports Server, the Web Services Guide has been redesigned and renamed as the REST API Reference. This book covers the current and complete REST API; the deprecated REST and SOAP APIs have been removed. Use the new REST API Reference to build client applications that access server functionality and embed reporting where your customers need it.

    JasperReports Server 6.2.0 added these improvements:

    • Organization Export and Import - To simplify administration of JasperReports Server, organization administrators can export and import entire organizations or sub-organizations, making it possible to quickly move or duplicate organization structures and the reports and dashboards they contain, including their dependencies. The new operations are available through the Manage menu and through new options for the import-export scripts.

    • Ad Hoc Editor - Ad Hoc views now support new chart types, including tree charts and semi-pie; the ability to unmerge crosstab cells to show individual rows; and filtering to show the top or bottom values in crosstabs. The new chart types are also available in Jaspersoft ® Studio.

    • Dashboard Designer - Dashboards now support image dashlets, streamlined parameter handling, and export.

    • Scheduler Master View - A new Schedules page lets you view and manage all scheduled jobs that you can access.

    • Jaspersoft Studio - Our advanced report designer has several improvements, including:
      • The RCP version of Jaspersoft Studio has been updated to Eclipse 4.5.
      • An improved interface for the Maps component makes it easier to add markers and paths to Google maps, as well as to authenticate using your API key or client ID.
      • Enhancements to the custom visualization component let you create your own component UI using a JSON file.
      • A new grid layout makes it easier to place elements in containers, such as bands, tables, crosstabs, and frames.
      • Two ready to use custom visualization components:
        • Figures: This example component lets you add a visualization of stick figures representing a set of values. Such visualizations are often used in infographics to depict complex information that's easy to read.
        • Radial Progress: This example component lets you add a circular visualization that represents a percentage. Values up to 100% are drawn as a single ring or portion thereof. For values above 100%, additional rings are drawn.

      For more information on these community-supported features, visit community.jaspersoft.com.

    • Due to incompatibilities between Eclipse 4.5 and earlier versions of the Jaspersoft Studio workspace, the workspace format has been updated. Upgrading users are prompted to pick a new workspace location. Once Jaspersoft Studio has launched, you can import your previous projects to the new location. You can also import data adapters, server connections and preferences.
    • Visualize.js - Our embeddable JavaScript solution now supports dashboards, report search, report bookmarks, and floating headers in tables and crosstabs.

    • Data Connectivity - We continue to improve and refine data access in JasperReports Server. Impala and Spark are now supported as JDBC data sources.

    Installation Overview

    Binary Installer

    To install JasperReports Server, you can use the binary installer, which is available for Windows, Linux, and Mac. This installer optionally puts Tomcat, Java, and PostgreSQL onto your system so that JasperReports Server is ready to run.

    To upgrade, start with the WAR File Distribution ZIP:  jasperreports-server-6.2.1-bin.zip

    It can be downloaded from the Jaspersoft Support site at http://support.jaspersoft.com.

    The recommended upgrade procedures are fully described in the Upgrade Guide chapters 2, 3, and 4.

    Note: If you are upgrading from certain version JasperReports Server, such as 4.5 or earlier, 5.6, 6.0, 6.0.1, 6.1, and 6.2.1, the upgrade involves substantial changes that may require you to plan and prepare beforehand. Please refer to the Upgrade Guide's Appendix A for advice regarding these important considerations. Also, see section 6.6 of these Release Notes.

    Database Changes



    There are jasperserver repository database changes between 6.0.x and 6.1.x as well as between 6.1.x and 6.2.0. There are no database changes between 6.2.0 and 6.2.1.


    6.2 Upgrade to 6.2.1 (Overlay Upgrade) (Tomcat Only)



    The 5.1 release added an improved package for upgrading between versions called the Overlay Upgrade.


    This package supports a new procedure for upgrading from JasperReports Server 4.0 and above. It can preserve and give execution-time feedback on modified files and customizations found in your JasperReports Server instance. This allows the upgrade to preserve your customizations and gives you visibility into which files changed.


    This new procedure also supports rollback to put your original web application instance back in place.


    This package is only implemented and certified to work with the Tomcat application server. All certified repository databases are supported.


    Start by downloading the Overlay Upgrade package from http://support.jaspersoft.com. The package name is:  jasperreports-server-overlay-upgrade-6.2.1.zip


    To start your overlay upgrade, unzip the package and open a

    command shell to the root of the package. Make sure to stop

    your Tomcat instance. Then enter:


      overlay install    (this initiates the upgrade operation)


      You are prompted for a working folder (accept the default)


      It is assumed that you have a default_master.properties file

      from your original JasperReports Server installation. You are

      prompted for the path to this file. Enter the path.


      The overlay upgrade can now execute.


    Once the overlay upgrade is complete (and you have resolved any

    file conflicts), restart Tomcat.


    Additional Supported Commands:


        overlay help       (this displays all available commands)


    For information on the overlay upgrade functionality, see the

    JasperReports Server Upgrade Guide Chapter 2.


    6.3 Upgrade from 6.x to 6.2.1




    To upgrade from 6.x, the recommended procedure is

    described in the Upgrade Guide Chapter 3. This procedure is run

    from the command line. Here is a summary of the steps used for

    this upgrade procedure:


      cd <unpacked-dir>/buildomatic


      cp sample_conf/<dbType>_master.properties  default_master.properties


      edit default_master.properties (add your app server and db properties)


      ./js-upgrade-samedb.sh   (or js-upgrade-samedb.bat)


    6.4 Upgrade from Older Versions



    This upgrade procedure lets you upgrade from any of the

    JasperReports Server versions listed in this section's

    introduction (starting with version 3.7 through 5.x).


    The recommended procedure is described in the Upgrade Guide

    Chapter 3. This procedure is run from the command line. Here is a

    summary of the steps used for this upgrade procedure:


      Export your existing JasperReports Server repository data

      (using the buildomatic/js-export.sh/bat command)

      (for example: ./js-export.sh --everything --output-zip my-export.zip)

      (Or export directly from the UI as of version 5.0 and later)


      cd <unpacked-dir>/buildomatic


      cp sample_conf/<dbType>_master.properties  default_master.properties


      edit default_master.properties (add your app server and db



      ./js-upgrade-newdb.sh <path>/my-export.zip


      (or js-upgrade-newdb.bat <path>/my-export.zip)


    6.5 Upgrade from Community Project



    If your current instance is the Community version, you can

    follow the Upgrade Guide steps in Chapter 6 to upgrade

    to the Commercial version.

    6.6 Important Upgrade Information



    6.6.1 Changes in the 6.2.1 Release


    JasperReports Server provides new and updated drivers for

    various databases. In this release, the previous connector for

    Impala that was available on the Jaspersoft community website

    is replaced with two new options:

    * TIBCO Impala JDBC driver (also called Progress)

    * Simba JDBC driver (Cloudera-endorsed JDBC interface)


    For more information, refer to the JasperReports Server

    Upgrade Guide.


    6.6.2 Changes in the 6.1.0 Release


    The new look-and-feel of JasperReports Server required several

    changes to the structure of themes. If you have customized

    your theme, you must re-apply those customizations to a new

    theme. For more information, refer to the JasperReports

    Server Upgrade Guide.


    6.6.3 Changes in the 6.0.x Releases


    Starting in this release, the server now incorporates a more

    recent version of the underlying Spring Security framework. We

    now use Spring Security 3. If you are upgrading from a

    previous version of JasperReports Server, you may need to take

    additional steps to accommodate the file structure of the new

    version of Spring. This is particularly the case if you have

    custom LDAP or SSO configured for the server. For more

    information, refer to the JasperReports Server External

    Authentication Guide.


    6.6.4 Changes in the 5.6.0 Release


    The 5.6.0 version included two changes that may require you to

    take additional steps during upgrade:


    * JDBC Drivers: The 5.6.0 version did not include JDBC drivers

      for some of the typical commercial databases (Oracle,

      Microsoft SQL Server, or DB2). In 5.6.1 and forward, we have  

      included drivers for these data sources; the manual steps  

      required to add these drivers are no longer necessary. For more

      information, see the documentation; in particular:

      - Information on working with drivers during installation is

        in the JasperReports Server Installation Guide.

      - Information on working with drivers during upgrade is in

        the JasperReports Server Upgrade Guide.

      - Information on working with drivers in the web UI is in

        the JasperReports Server Administrator Guide.


    * Changes to OLAP engine: Due to a change between versions of the

      OLAP engine, if you use Jaspersoft OLAP's XML/A functionality

      to connect to a remote JasperReports Servers XML/A sources in

      versions previous to 5.6.x, you must take additional steps to

      complete your upgrade to 5.6.x and later versions. For

      information, see Known Issue 35986 (in these release notes).


    6.6.5 Additional Information on Planning for Upgrade


    For additional information on planning for your upgrade, please

    see Appendix A "Planning Your Upgrade" in the JasperReports

    Server Upgrade Guide.



    Security Fixes

    * 36569: SECURITY - CVE-2014-0050. TIBCO Jaspersoft addressed a

      vulnerability in the Apache Commons FileUpload component.

      Previously, the server was potentially vulnerable to specially

      crafted Content-type headers that can allow Denial of Service

      attacks. In release 5.6.0, TIBCO Jaspersoft upgraded to Apache

      Commons FileUpload component version 1.3.1 which addresses

      this security issue.


      For more information on the underlying issue, see:




    Known Issues

    * 17824: While Fusion Charts support annotations, JasperReports

      Server and Jaspersoft Studio don't support them. Annotations

      cannot be used in Pro Charts. We plan to address this issue in

      a subsequent release.


    * 30018: When an XML/A provider returns data to the Ad Hoc

      Editor, JasperReports Server sometimes must convert the

      datatype to string. For example, an XML/A provider may return

      data of type currency; in an Ad Hoc view, such currency data

      is a string that displays as a symbol (such as $) and a

      number. When such an XML/A-based Ad Hoc view is saved as a

      report, its datatypes are converted again. JasperReports

      Server attempts to convert the data to their original types,

      but in some cases, such as currency, no such type is

      available, and so currency data is converted to type double.

      In a report created from an Ad Hoc view, XML/A data that was

      returned with datatype currency is displayed as a number; the

      currency symbol is omitted. We plan to address this issue in

      a subsequent release.


    * 31955: In Pro Charts (based on Fusion), Gantt charts do not

      support HTML5 output format. We find that this limitation

      originates in Fusion, and so have no plans to resolve it.

      Fusion may address this issue in a subsequent release.


      Since the problem originates in the PostgreSQL installer,

      we have no  plans to resolve.


    * 32168: Though we don't strictly support the practice, in

      previous versions of JasperReports Server, it was possible

      to create a clone install in JBoss by copying an existing

      JasperReports Server WAR file and deploying it to a new JBoss

      instance. With 5.1, Jaspersoft supports JBoss AS7/EAP6, but

      has uncovered issues with clone installs. For more

      information, refer to http://tinyurl.com/cv6ta2l


    * 35986: If you use Jaspersoft OLAP's XML/A functionality to

       connect to a remote JasperReports Server's XML/A sources, you

       must take additional steps to complete your upgrade. You

       must redefine your XML/A connections to specify the

       connection string in a new way. For example, in previous

       versions, the Foodmart XML/A connection specified:




       In the new version, the DataSource portion of the

       connection string is always JRS when the remote provider is

       JasperReports Server. For example:




    * 40052: In previous versions of JasperReports Server, field IDs

      and item IDs in Domains could include spaces. With the addition

      of calculated fields, these spaces cause JasperReports Server

      to return errors when the Domain is  edited, or when users

      open Ad Hoc views and reports that rely on the Domain.


      For example, this XML was valid in version 5.2:


        <item description="customer id" descriptionId="" id="customer

        id" label="customer id" labelId="" resourceId="orders.customer

        id" />


      But this returns errors in version 5.6.1 and later. In all

      later versions, IDs can't include spaces.


      To work around this issue, edit the Domain design to replace

      spaces with underscores. For example, you would change the

      above XML to the following:

        <item description="customer id" descriptionId=""

        id="customer_id" label="customer id" labelId=""

        resourceId="orders.customer_id" />


      If you have a large number of Domains, we recommend that you

      write a script or application that can automatically make

      these substitutions. At a high level, you would:


        1. In your preferred language, write a script that locates

           spaces in ID definitions and replaces them with


        2. Export your Domains out of JasperReports Server, and

           extract them from the ZIP file if necessary.

        3. Run your script against the exported, unzipped Domains.

        4. Examine the Domains' XML to confirm that your script

        worked correctly.

        5. ZIP your Domains into a new archive.

        6. Import the Domains ZIP into a test instance of

        JasperReports Server.

        7. Test each Domain and the Ad Hoc view and report that

        rely on them.

        8. Identify and correct any problems you identify in your


        9. Repeat steps 3-8 until your tests are successful.

        10. When you're sure your script is replacing spaces

        correctly, import your Domains into your production

        JasperReports Server instance.


    * 43387: We are aware of a significant performance issue when

      the server is run in Tomcat 8.0.15. Because of it, we

      recommend that you use an earlier version of Tomcat (any

      8.0.x before 8.0.15). We plan to address this issue in a

      subsequent release.


    * 43514 - We have found that earlier versions of PhantomJS may

      not support or include all the fonts JasperReports Server

      uses when exporting dashboards. For example:

      - If a dashboard contains fonts for certain locales (such as

      Japan and China), the text isn't rendered properly in the

      exported dashboard.

      - If a table in a dashboard has been filtered or sorted, the

      sort and filter icons aren't rendered properly in the

      exported dashboard. Sorted crosstabs exhibit similar behavior.


       If you experience such issues, we recommend that you

       upgrade your instance of PhantomJS to at least version 2.0.


    * 43707: If a dashboard contains an image dashlet that relies on

      the repo: syntax to refer to its image, and superuser exports

      the dashboard (using the repository's Export context menu item

      or the Manage > Server Settings > Export page), the image

      isn't exported with the dashboard. We plan to address this

      issue in a subsequent release.


    * 44413: When JasperReports Server is hosted by some versions of

      WebSphere, performance is slow. We have determined that this

      performance problem is resolved by WebSphere Application Server

      V8.5.5 Fix Pack 8. Once you apply this fix, your WebSphere

      version number is for more information, including

      installation instructions, see IBM's support article:



    * 44499: The new chart types added in 6.2, dual-measure tree

      map, tree map, parent tree map, don't currently support the

      hyperlink functionality when an Ad Hoc view or report is used

      in a dashboard.  We plan to address this issue in a

      subsequent release.


    * 44541: When the JasperReports Server installation executable

      runs in Windows against an existing Tomcat instance, it

      doesn't remove the contents of the WEB-INF/lib directory. This

      results in duplicate JAR files, which cause Tomcat to return

      errors and fail to initialize.


      To work around this issue, delete the contents of the

      WEB-INF/lib directory before running the installation




    These defects, which were listed in the release notes of previous

    versions, are considered obsolete in this release:


    * 21798: When JasperReports Server is accessed through Microsoft

      Internet Explorer 8, performance may be impaired. Because this

      version of IE reached its end of life in January 2016, we consider

      this defect obsolete.


    * 25258: When exporting your repository as part of the upgrade

      process from version 4.0.x, 4.1, or 4.2.x, an organization's

      theme is reset to the server's default theme. The workaround

      is to reset each organization's active theme. Custom themes may

      need to be upgraded, as described in the JasperReports Server

      Upgrade Guide. Because we have ended support for these

      versions, we consider this defect obsolete.


    * 32159:  When the 64-bit JasperReports Server binary installer

      is run in some versions of Mac OSX (including Mac OSX 10.8.3),

      and you select the option to install the bundled PostgreSQL,

      an error appears if PostgreSQL 9.1 is already installed.

      Since we no longer certify this version of Mac OSX, we

      consider this defect obsolete. Note that this version of

      OSX is considered compatible with this version of JasperReports



    * 33003: Export catalogs created through the web UI in

      JasperReports Server version 5.1.x contained incorrect

      metadata. When these catalogs are imported into JasperReports

      Server version 5.2, the objects they contain are created in

      the wrong location in the repository.  Because we ended support

      for version 5.2, we consider this defect obsolete.



      For more information about this defect, refer to the 5.2

      release notes.


    * 44576: The release notes of a previous version suggested that

      JasperReports Server failed to export repository resources

      when the server was hosted by Glassfish 3 and higher and the

      web UI is viewed in Internet Explorer 9. We have determined that

      this issue was caused by incorrect configuration, and does not

      occur normally.


    This defect, which was listed in the release notes of previous

    versions, was resolved in a previous release:


    * 40543: Jaspersoft uncovered a number of issues while

      testing this release when deployed in Glassfish 3.1 that

      prevented us from supporting that specific version of Glassfish

      with previous releases. We have addressed this issue in this

      release, though it requires additional configuration steps

      when Glassfish 3.1.2 is used in a non-clustered environment.


      To change the configuration:

      1. Using a text editor, open the web.xml (found in


      2. Locate and uncomment this line:


      3. Locate and comment out (that is, add <!-- at the beginning of) this



      4. Locate and uncomment these lines:





      5. Locate and comment out these lines):

    End of Support Notices

    TIBCO Jaspersoft is in the process of ending support for several



    * JasperReports Server no longer supports JDK 1.5.


    * We have deprecated our Open Flash functionality in favor of

      HTML5 solutions. In particular, the Flash samples that

      shipped with previous versions of the server are no longer

      provided.Also note that the Flash export option has been

      removed from the report viewer. If you want to re-enable

      this option, you can uncomment the exporter in a configuration



      To do so, open the WEB-INF/flows/viewReportBeans.xml file

      and uncomment this line:

      <entry key="swf" value-ref="swfExporterConfiguration"/>


    * With the completion of the v2 REST API, we announced

      the deprecation of the original REST API and the end-of-life

      of the SOAP services. While these services will remain

      available in the server for the time being, we

      recommend that you migrate your integration to the latest

      API available: Jaspersoft v2 REST API.


     * In previous releases, information about our SOAP and REST APIs

      was found in the Web Services Guide. In this release, SOAP and

      v1 REST API are considered deprecated, so that information

      is no longer a part of the current documentation. The old guide

      is replaced by a new REST API Reference. If you must still use

      the older APIs, refer to the 6.2.0 version of the JasperReports

      Server web Services Guide for details.


    * With the general availability of the commercial edition of

      Jaspersoft Studio, we announced that iReport is now in

      maintenance mode. We recommend that you migrate to Jaspersoft

      Studio, which offers improvements beyond what is available in



    * With the addition of more advanced interactive behavior in

      the report viewer, JasperReports Server no longer supports

      interactivity in the xhtml report exporter. If you want

      your reports to be interactive when viewed in the server,

      you must use the default report exporter (html2). For more

      information, see the JasperReports Server Administrator Guide.


    * For Mac OSX, we no longer support:

      * The 32 bit version of Mac OSX

      * Mac OSX 10.5

      In addition, Mac OSX 10.8.3 is no longer certified, but

      is considered compatible with this version of JasperReports



    * Microsoft has needed support for some of its products:

       * In April 2014, Microsoft ended support for its Windows XP

         operating system. For more information, see:


      * In January 12, 2016, Microsoft ended support for Internet

        Explorer version 8. Also note that JasperReports Server no

        longer supports Internet Explorer 7. For more information, see:



    * Support for some versions of our Jaspersoft BI products,

      including JasperReports, JasperReports Server, and iReport,

      has ended:

    * Support for version 5.5.x of our Jaspersoft BI products,

      including JasperReports, JasperReports Server, and iReport,

      will end on May 28, 2016.


    * Version 5.6.1 was the last version that supported Spring

      Security 2.x. All releases after Version 6.0 support

      Spring 3.x and may require updates to authentication

      integration code written to work with prior JasperReports
