IReport Designer problems running with JDK 8
Posted on March 27, 2014 at 5:05pm
Install the new version of JDK 8 and stopped working iReport Designer. I was running the iReport-5.0.0 version and install the latest version of iReport-5.5.0 but the problem persists. When I try to run from the command window ireport_w.exe tells me the following "The current path is: C: \ Java \ jdk1.8.0The current path is: C: \ Java \ jdk1.8.0Java HotSpot (TM) 64-Bit Server VM warning: ignoring option MaxPermSize = 512m; support was removed in 8.0. "
What should I do to run iReport Designer with JDK 8?

iReport doesn't support JDK8! Down grade to JDK7.

U! That problem I have already updated my soft JDK 8. I can tell iReport somehow run with JDK 7 version?

Thanks for responding. By way of comment, in case anyone has the same problem, I solve it by modifying the parameter JDKHOME = "C: \ Java \ jdk1.7.0_45" in ireport.conf file. Thus iReport starts with JDK 7 and my software works with JDK 8.

For those using Jaspersoft Studio, the JDK is specified in "Jaspersoft Studio.ini"
Change the line below to point to your JDK.

I found this on Stack Overflow, and it was the solution I was looking for. I hope it helps all of you!
There's another way if you don't want to have older Java versions installed you can do the following:
1) Download the iReport-5.6.0.zip from http://community.jaspersoft.com/project/ireport-designer/releases
2) Download jre-7u67-windows-x64.tar.gz (the one packed in a tar) fromhttp://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre7-downloads-1880261.html
3) Extract the iReport and in the extracted folder that contains the bin and etc folders throw in the jre. For example if you unpack twice the jre-7u67-windows-x64.tar.gz you end up with a folder named jre1.7.0_67. Put that folder in the iReport-5.6.0 directory:
and then go into the etc folder and edit the file ireport.conf and add the following line into it:
now if you run the ireport_w.exe from the bin folder in the iReport directory it should load just fine.
