I openly admit, I have a lot to learn. I am hoping someone can give me a farily simple answer. I have many reports that have been created in iReports 5.6.0. I am wanting to rebuild them and place them on Jasper Server, but there are some basic issues I do not understand regarding class paths. For example, there is a parameter class in iReports called java.util.Collection that is an available drop down in iReports, but is not present in Jasper Studio 6.5.1.
How can I both find that particluar jar file, and where or how do I transfer it over to the Jasper Studio and Jasper Server so I can use it?
I apologize for my lack of understanding and probably terminology. It is why I am asking the question in the first place.
You should be able to manually input the class of java.util.Collection to the parameter type without needing to pre-select it. java.util.Collection is an abstract class that is available with the base Java distribution, shouldn't require you additional JARs to classpath.
Thank you Friendly User. So if I understand you correctly, I would literally just 'type' that input class instead of choosing a dropdown (which does not exist anyway).
yes, that would be correct. Strange that you don't have a dropdown, in my studio I can click on small triangle to select often-used classes such as java.lang.String or java.util.Date and there is also a "..." button next to the parameter type field which brings up a dialog where you can search the java classes available in the workspace.
That is interesting that you have the libraries options, and that the dropdown does include that class. the java.util.List is also missing, and I would think it would be by default included. I cannot seem to find them. Could this result in a improper installation and/or incorrect build paths?
