my first day with jasper
i downloaded and installed jasperreports-server-5.6 & jaspersoftstudiopro-5.60
i can't find a way to add new data source to my sql DB and create the report (jaspersoft Studio Professional).
if anyone has a link to show steps for beginners, it would be perfect.
the tutorial here doesn't have the same interface i have. i tried to add snapshoot of my jasper but upolading picture here is so slow.
thanks in advance,
