JasperReports Server CP on Websphere Application Server, db2


I have read through the install guide for the professional version and it is very clear but my client will be using the community version (4.7 or 5).

Has anyone successfully installed community version on Websphere Application Server and a non-postgresql/mysql database? 

What are the extra steps required? 

How does this affect the use of the install scripts in the war file distribution?

1 Answer:


The community edition is certified only for Tomcat or JBoss for the application server and PostrgeSQL for the repository DB.  There is no tested/validated installation of this edition on any other platforms.

Thanks mgeise! I think we can work with that but all of our data is in db2. I see here http://www.jaspersoft.com/sites/default/files/Jaspersoft%20Platform%20Su... and here http://www.jaspersoft.com/sites/default/files/Jaspersoft%20Platform%20Su...

that db2 is not supported as the datasource. Has anyone out there connected community JasperServer to db2 datasource?

DB2 as a datasource will not likely have any issues in the community edition. We don't test it, but there are plenty of community members that have their data in DB2 and are able to connect and generate reports from it. At the end of the day, if you can connect through a JDBC driver and it is SQL92/JDBC2.1 compliant, there should not be an issue.
