5.1.0: java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: 0

We're trying to figure out why the following error happens when we try and run our report on a 5.1.0 JasperServer running on a FreeBSD box ... its not related to the SQL query, as we've tested it both on iReports on a Mac OS X desktop, and from the database server itself ...

The fact that it is reporting in sun.font.*, the only thought I have is that the Mac OS X side, where we are building the report, is using a font that isn't on the FreeBSD side ... but is there something else I should be looking at?

Thanks ...

The offending code in the jrxml file appears to be:


..insert your code here..

<band height="28" splitType="Stretch">
<reportElement uuid="849400f9-420e-4e51-854b-616f3361af26" x="0" y="0" width="350" height="20"/>
<font fontName="DejaVu Sans" size="14" isBold="true"/>
<text><![CDATA[School District 63: Enrollment Report]]></text>

If I change it to Arial, then I get a 'Missing font' error instead, so it doesn't look like its that the font isn't available, which was my first thought ...

2 Answers:

Could you enable debug logging for net.sf.jasperreports.engine.fill.SimpleTextLineWrapper (that is add log4j.logger.net.sf.jasperreports.engine.fill.SimpleTextLineWrapper=trace in WEB-INF/log4j.properties), restart JRS, run the report and post the log file?

That might give some hints on what is going on..

PS:  Please also mention the Java version that you are using.

First, assume this is the part the log file that is of interest? The rest is just the trace previously posted:

If you actually want the *whole* log file, let me know, just didn't want to spam the forum ...

As for the 'missing details' ...

I'm running this on:


Installed using the port, which installs:


And have it setup with a PostgreSQL 9.2 backend.

As this is running on a headless server, it is started with the following in /etc/rc.conf:

tomcat7_java_opts="-Xms1024m -Xmx2048m -XX:MaxPermSize=512m -Djava.awt.headless=true"

The log entries look OK, I don't see anything wrong there.

Might be a JDK bug on FreeBSD, there are other reports of the same error such as https://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=229256

You could try switching to JDK7, maybe that would fix it.

That seems to do it ... will do more testing today, but now the reports are being generated and displayed as expected ...

hadn't realized that I didn't answer this ... switching from OpenJDK6 -> OpenJDK7 completely fixed the issue ... thank you ...

I have a similar problem An RTF with Calibri font that has the same problem. Works as expected if you change the font to Arial or get a version of JDK7 higher or lower than the JDK7u21. Even the Calibri font is present on the machine and the problem happens
