Jasper and iText

Team,

Currently I'm using Jasper reports 6.0.1 and iText 5.5.0. I need to move to Jasper 6.7.0 but I'm not sure if this is compatible with my current iText version.

Is there somebody that can help me with this query?

 

Thank you!

Hi, it's fine if it's your corporate policy, but I don't understand why they don't change the name of the library and add it to Jasper's package, so there's no name problem with itext 5 or higher if we're using both libraries in the same project

Thank you

Yes. Further info on itext licensing.

Jaspersoft in earlier 6.x version had a license agreement with iText to bundle itext 5.x, but it ended when Jaspersoft were bought out. So they reverted back to itext 2.1.7 based customized version. iText changed some package and class names in 5.x when they became corporate.

JasperReports is using a customized version of earlier version of itext so package and class names are different from recent version of itext.

So, Jasper is coming with its own version of iText, right?
