Problem in jasperserver war installation for community version



I was a happy japserserver user with the bundled tomcat, postgresql. But now I am going nuts.

I am trying to install japserserver with existing tomcat6 and mysql server on ubuntu. So, I am using the war file for installation.

Specifications of my system  : tomcat6, java version "1.8.0_60" , mysql5.5 (all installed)

The bulid failed during the execution of

The exception I get in the log created is:

[java] Started to load resources
     [java] Resource name: applicationContext.xml
     [java] Resource name: applicationContext-cascade.xml
     [java] Resource name: applicationContext-data-snapshots.xml

Then I started to run commnads as mentioned here,, inspite of running that install script.

but got the same error after executing : js-ant import-minimal-ce

Then I checked my database where I found that the databases jasperserver, foodmart, sugarcrm were created. All tables created. But no data was there in tables of jasperserver.

Then I tried the things mentioned here,

js-ant re-int-js-db-pro : successful

js-ant run-production-data-pro : BUILD FAILED

/<path to>/jasperreports-server-cp-6.0.1-bin/buildomatic/bin/dev.xml:642: The following error occurred while executing this line:

/<path to>/jasperreports-server-cp-6.0.1-bin/buildomatic/bin/dev.xml:94: "maven" or "maven.home" property needs to be set

I am stuck with the installation for 4 days now. I am all clueless. Please help.

1 Answer:


JasperReports Server 6.0.1 doesn't  support JDK1.8. You'll have to use Oracle JDK1.7 or Oracle JDK1.6.
