I'm using netbeans 7.4 with latest updates and i have downloaded ireport 5.6.0 which i think is the latest version bt after installing when i click on its icon created on desktop a splash screen opens and after that nothing displays to my screen, please help me to solve out this problem. i have JDK 8 also
The solution is to use Jaspersoft Studio instead of iReport. iReport has already been announced to be depreciated. If you're just starting on JasperReports, it's probably not worth your time to spend time on technology that's going to be depreciated.
