I am trying to add a PowerPoint export capability to our JasperReports Server, and I am having some difficulty getting the 5.2 source to compile with the PPTX Exporter modifications. I have also noticed that there is a commercial product, Aspose.Slides, which claims to be an all-inclusive solution (it looks like you just drop a JAR in and change a few config files); however it is also rather expensive. Can the PPPTX Exporter be made to work with any newer versions of JasperReports server? Is there a better way to go about getting this functionality?
I ahve been trying to solve the exact same problem. I have a powerpoint exporter package for 4.5 which I am trying to port to 5.2 version. The Jaspersoft internal folks asked me to follow the instruction on http://community.jaspersoft.com/wiki/installing-pptx-exporter-jasperreports-server-v421 to port this.
I wanted to know if you were able to get this working on your 5.x version? If so could you please list the steps for me?
Export to PPTX works well in Jasper Reports, but some how its a missing when come to Jasper Server. There is a post which offers some comments for this PDF exporting & reading issue. Hope it help you a little.
