How to re-Use same document footer in set of templates


I am working on a large set of document templates, JRXML  that need to be edited in the footer.

Pproblem is each document has it's own footer, they are not reusing the same footer, is it even possible to fix this so that

it bcomes maintainable/reusable ?

Is there a way of inserting the same footer component in all the documents, as a subreport or maybe Create a main Template to wrap them ?

What would be the easiest approoach?


Thanks in advance !

1 Answer:



If I understand your question correctly you have a large number of documents that all use the same document footer. A solution to your issue is the use of subreports. More information on the use of subreports can be found here:

Hope this helps.
