  • JRC Ant Task breaks with Groovy 1.5

    CategoryBug report

    I just upgraded to the latest stable groovy revision (1.5) and began having problems with the JRC no longer compiling JRXML where Groovy has been chosen as the scripting language. The actual error message is:


    java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.codehaus.groovy.control.CompilerConfiguration.setUseNewGroovy(Z)V


    I dug deep enough to discover that while the method existed in Groovy 1.0, it no longer exists in Groovy 1.5.

    I think Groovy has a reputation of changing API very often and without warning.

    I don\'t think we are going to upgrade to newer Groovy soon, so the solution for you is to create a new report compiler by making a copy of the one in JR.

    You then make the required fix so that is compatible with the Groovy version you want and then register it with all reports that have groovy as expression language, by modifying the "net.sf.jasperreports.compiler.groovy" in the jasperreports.properties file.


    This way you can use the Groovy you want, while still being able to upgrade to newer JR and keep your enhancement in place.


    I hope this helps.

    We upgraded to Groovy 1.5.5 on SVN.

    Now let\'s keep our fingers crossed and hope it will work.

    With Groovy you never know what changed.


    Please provide early feedback if you can.

    I checked out the latest SVN trunk, and it seems to work. The problem is I was really hoping to have a stable point revision release that I could incorporate into our project. Is there a TAG out there that I can go and get that has the change?


    Thanks for your help.
