 Hi, usin java with Json DataSource:

public class Test {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    try {
      String pathToReports = "/home/test/";
      Map<String, Object> params = new HashMap<>();
      JRDataSource jsonDataSource = new JsonDataSource(new File("/home/test/example.json"));
      JasperReport jasperReport = JasperCompileManager.compileReport(pathToReports + "main.jrxml");
      JasperPrint jasperPrint = JasperFillManager.fillReport(jasperReport, params, jsonDataSource);
      //Export to PDF     
      // JasperExportManager.exportReportToPdfFile(jasperPrint, "/home/test/fileName.pdf");
      //Export to Word
      JRDocxExporter exporter = new JRDocxExporter();    
      exporter.setExporterInput(new SimpleExporterInput(jasperPrint)); 
      File exportReportFile = new File(fileName + ".docx");    
      exporter.setExporterOutput(new SimpleOutputStreamExporterOutput(exportReportFile));    
    } catch (Exception e) {}
