ClassNotFoundError! Msg: org.apache.derby.jdbc.ClientDriver Possible not found class: org.apache.derby.jdbc.ClientDriver

2.Tried adding jar directly to iReport-5.6.0\ireport\modules\ext -Did not work. I
s there any other configuration that is required?
Please try with lower versions of Apache Derby DB JDK
Faced similar issue with jasper reports server 7.8.0 community edition, Derby 10.15, compatible with JDK 9+ was not loading.
Workaround: Use Derby 10.14, compatible with JDK 8+, and Derby DB loads.
Error seen in logs: jar file has been built with version 53 and higher, can read only version 52 and lower
