I put oracle as db for jasperreports server and when i build using js-install it failed.I used jasperreports-server-cp-5.6.1-bin war file and manually tried to build this.This is the error msg i got :
validation.xml JasperServer CE doesn't support oracle DB type!
How to connect oracle db for jasperreports community edition in war file distribution ?
JasperReports Server repository is a database to save information about your users and reports. Just use something like MySQL. To do this, just setup MySQL and go through the JasperReports Server installation steps as is outline in the Installation guide.
After installation, login to JasperReports Server and create a "Datasource" to use data from Oracle. Specify your report to use this datasource.
