1. Watch the video below to get an overview of JasperReports IO


2. Start the JasperReports IO service.

Locate the README.txt file in the root folder of the JasperReports IO archive. Follow the installation instructions to launch using one of the start scripts. (your root folder should look something similar to the image below)


3. Launch the JasperReports IO Demo App.

Once you’ve successfully started the JasperReports IO service, open your browser and go to the following URL: http://localhost:8080

This should open a very helpful documentation site that includes live samples, API reference guides, and more to familiarize you with the service and how to use it. This is perhaps the most valuable resource in getting you started successfully.


4. Explore the Report Gallery.

Browse through a series of sample reports and data visualizations that are available through the REST API exposed by JasperReports IO. Note that all of the reports and data visualizations were created using Jaspersoft Studio, which is an advanced visual designer.

Once you’ve finished exploring the JasperReports IO demo app, revisit the README.txt file in your JasperReports IO root folder to learn how to stop the JasperReports IO (see bottom section of Installation Notes).
