1 Answer:


Yes with Yosemite and the latest Apple updates is a pain to get any eclipse product working.

The issue is long to explain, but the quick solution is to change the JaspersoftStudio.ini and fix the -vm flag in the .ini file as follow:

To find this file in your Mac go to Applications/Jaspersoft Studio right click on the app file and select open package contents
Then navigate to Contents/MacOS and you will find the file there, is a text file so you can edit it with Sublime text or your favorite mac text editor.
Find the line that says -vm and replace it with the path i shown above so it points to the Java bundled with JSS
