Hi all ,

I have found a solution to the query on my own, thanks augarte for the explanation regarding the implementation in java that helped,but the real problem was that retrieving the parameters from the jrxml .It is possible to do so.

I found a way for that by parsing the xml and then extracting the tags with parameter and retrieving the attribute name and class keeping in mind the check attribut  isForPrompting is blank or not present for the parameters , In this way I got the Hashmap of all the parameters with their types and I put that in the parameterMap and hence fulfilling the parameters in the jrxml dynamically .Solves the purpose for me.

The jars need to be included are-

1.commons-beanutils-x.x.x.jar

2.commons-collections-x.x.x.jar

3.commons-digester-x.x.jar

4.commons-logging-x.x.jar

5.groovy-all-x.x.x.jar

6.iText-x.x.x.jar

7.jasperreports-x.x.x.jar

8.poi-x.x.jar(for excel export)

9.jfreechart-x.x.x.jar

Hope that this is helpful

Regards,

Ankur

Hi, 

The code depends on the datasource you want to use for generating the report, this one is an example that shows how to create a pdf file having a xml datasource and a jrxml file: 

 

      File f = new File ("XmlDataSource.xml");
      JRXmlDataSource JprXmlDsr = new JRXmlDataSource (f, "DataList/Line");
      
        /* Compile the template */
      JasperReport Rep = JasperCompileManager.compileReport ("MyReport.jrxml");
 
        /* Create the JasperPrint object with the template and the data */
      JasperPrint  Prn = JasperFillManager.fillReport (Rep, new HashMap (), JprXmlDsr);
      
        /* Export the report to pdf format if needed*/
      JasperExportManager.exportReportToPdfFile (Prn, "MyReport.pdf");
 
About the jar files you need, there is a post that tells the necessary ones : http://community.jaspersoft.com/questions/529175/required-jar-files-compilingfillingexporting
 
About passing parameters to the report, you can see that in the code I have written above there is a HashMap in the call to "fillReport" function. You can add all the parameters you need in this HashMap. For example: 
 
HashMap map = new HashMap ();
HashMap.put ("ParamName", paramValue);
 
I'm not sure if it is possible to do the las thing you want to do. If I'm not wrong, you want to know how many parameters do you have in your jrmxl report. The only way I know would be parsing the jrxml file but don't know if there is any other option. 
 
Hope this helps.
 
Regards

In thas case you need to get the connection to the database first. This link can help you: http://www.roseindia.net/tutorial/java/jdbc/jdbcdrivermanager.html

Then, the code should be very similar to the one I have posted. The only modification is the call to fillReport function: 

JasperPrint  Prn = JasperFillManager.fillReport (Rep, new HashMap (),  Con);

As you can see the only modification is in the last parameter "Con" (java.sql.Conneciton type), which is the connection to your database, and you can get it in the link I have put above. 

Hope this helps.

Hi, 

In the report Properties there is an option "Language" (check the attachment). I think your poblem is that you have selected "Groovy" instead of Java. Try changing this property and setting it as Java. 

This might solve your problem.
