How to compile a .jrxml report?

2

 Hi all,

we just discovered JasperSoft Studio: great work!!

A question: with iReport you can compile the report with right-click, "Compile" menu item.

I cannot see the equivalent here in JS Studio; still to be implemented or is somewhere else?

Thank you 

Regards

Hi. You can compile a .jrxml in Project Explorer window of Jaspersoft Studio. By default, .jrxml report are in MyReports group. Expand this group, find your .jrxml report and rightclick on it. In context menu choose 'Compile report'. Then you get compiled .jasper report.

Hi,

just use standard Eclipse Ctrl+B or in from menu

Project->Build All

you will see in the report folder a compiled .jrxml file

 

you should have JasperReport Nature activated on the project folder

right click on the project folder, JasperReports->Toggle JasperReports Nature

 

Best regards,

Not sure if this is a bug or setting problem, I can't compile my main report in Eclipse, other 2 sub reports are fine. The main report uses org.apache.struts2.views.jasperreports.ValueStackDataSource.class, seems like when compiling my main report, Eclipse can't find the struts2 jasperreport plugin jar file in my project classpath, WEB-INF/lib.

Now I have to use iReport and include that struts2 jasperreports plugin to compile my report. I hope the newer version will be able to solve this problem.

 It is JRXML Problem.

java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.struts2.views.jasperreports.ValueStackDataSource

I have "struts2-jasperreports-plugin-2.0.11.2.jar" in my project/WEB-INF/lib not sure why it can't refer to that jar file or my project classpath.

Hope this help.

Hi,

I created WEB-INF/lib folder in a project, inside I  have struts2-jasperreports-plugin-2.2.1.1.jar

I added this jar to projects classpath

(Right click on project name, Properties->Java BuildPath, Libraries->Add Jars ....,

then Order and Export, select all)  press OK

I run the report, the following error is thrown

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/opensymphony/xwork2/util/logging/LoggerFactory
    at org.apache.struts2.views.jasperreports.ValueStackDataSource.<clinit>(ValueStackDataSource.java:45)

    ... 15 more

 

so, I added com.opensymphony.xwork   jars, and it works

maybe your classpath is incorect?

Hi,

yes compile with Ctrl+B, but I allways compile before running the report, so it's not mandatory

you should add all your jars from WEB-INF/lib to the classpath, I don't see it inside this classpath entries

<classpath>

<classpathentry kind="src" path="src"/>

<classpathentry kind="con" path="org.eclipse.jst.j2ee.internal.web.container"/>

<classpathentry kind="con" path="org.eclipse.jst.j2ee.internal.module.container"/>

<classpathentry kind="con" path="org.eclipse.jdt.launching.JRE_CONTAINER"/>

<classpathentry kind="con" path="org.eclipse.jst.server.core.container/org.eclipse.jst.server.tomcat.runtimeTarget/Apache Tomcat v5.5"/>

<classpathentry kind="output" path="build/classes"/>

</classpath>

 isn't all jars in WEB-INF/lib included in

<classpath>

<classpathentry kind="src" path="src"/>

<classpathentry kind="con" path="org.eclipse.jst.j2ee.internal.web.container"/>

<classpathentry kind="con" path="org.eclipse.jst.j2ee.internal.module.container"/>

<classpathentry kind="con" path="org.eclipse.jdt.launching.JRE_CONTAINER"/>

<classpathentry kind="con"path="org.eclipse.jst.server.core.container/org.eclipse.jst.server.tomcat.runtimeTarget/Apache Tomcat v5.5"/>

<classpathentry kind="output" path="build/classes"/>

</classpath>

 

I have created a new project, just with struts2-jasperreports-plugin-2.2.1.1.jar & xwork-core-2.2.1.1.jar. Still having the same JRXML error. 

 

java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.struts2.views.jasperreports.ValueStackDataSource

 

Attached is the new web project that i created, same as yours ?
