iReport and Java 8 compatibility

Hi All. It seems that Java 8 is not supported for iReport yet. Could you please answer, whether an udpate is intended for this purpose. Thank you!

I've been advised after posting a similar question to just use jasper studio instead, I'm using studio now and it works fine.

There's another way if you don't want to have older Java versions installed you can do the following:

1) Download the from

2) Download jre-7u67-windows-x64.tar.gz (the one packed in a tar) from

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.
