ireports 5.6.0 not opening


When I click on the ireports icon it displays the splash screen says loading cached objects nd then just disappears. I have tried using it with jdk 1.6,1.7 and 1.8. Would be glad if someone tells me what is wrong......

Hi there - Double check your Java installation.  Also, the iReport Ultimate Guide has a section, labeled, Getting Started, that presents information that will help you.  -- Hugo

The problem arose because I had not unistalled jdk 1.8 version! Thanks a lot Hugo :)

I had the same issue. I tried to change the path in the ireport.conf file but it didnt help. So i uninstalled jdk 1.8 and downloaded jdk 1.7. works fine for me now

I opened the ireports directory, found ireport.conf in the etc folder, then changed the changed the 11th line (about default jdk location) to somthing like jdkhome="C:\.....\.....\jdk1.7.0_80" without the hashtag. Works like a charm

1. open file - ireport.conf

2. Edit property jdkhome like jdkhome="c:\java\jdk1.7.0_76"
That's works for me

In Linux , go to ireport.conf and change path for jdkhome (path where you installed JDK). It will work

In my case it did not work with jdk 8. I configure jdk 7 home path for jdkhome in ireport.conf.

Make sure your JAVA_HOME is pointing to Java 7.

I had the same problem, because mine was pointing to Java 8.

I changed that and it is opening now.

I home it helps!

If you use Ubuntu:

* Install JDK 7: sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk

* Config path jdk in file ireport.config (in forder: "package that you downloaded"/etc/):

# default location of JDK/JRE, can be overridden by using --jdkhome <dir> switch

!Note: NOT --jdkhome="/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64"

* Update:

Open iReport on Ubuntu 18.04

Step1: Download JD7:

Step2: Edit file ireport.conf:

# default location of JDK/JRE, can be overridden by using --jdkhome <dir> switch

(Point to the JDK folder just downloaded in step 1)
