In de demo app there is a button to make the report a blob and show it within your application. Is there a way to show it in a popup window? I took a look and the code but couldn't figure out how the page is created within my application.

Do you have the source code available for JasperReportsIntegration-1.3.0.1.jar? I'm curious in seeing if I can add another report format type. I'd like to render a report as a single image.

Thanks,
Jason

Hi Jason,

nope.

I have provided an interface for calling the following exporters:
- pdf
- rtf
- html
- xls
- xlsx
- docx
- pptx
- jxl
- csv

I am not aware that there is an exporter to generate an image file:
http://jasperreports.sourceforge.net/api/net/sf/jasperreports/engine/export/package-summary.html

BTW, what do you expect to happen when a report contains possibly 100 pages?

Perhaps I would try to use a different piece of software to convert a pdf or rtf into a gif after the JasperReportsIntegration is done.

Do you have any other suggestions?

Regards,
Dietmar.

Hi Jason,

I was a bit too fast.

It seems like the JRGraphics2DExporter could do the trick.

- http://massapi.com/source/jasperreports-4.0.2/src/net/sf/jasperreports/engine/print/JRPrinterAWT.java.html

But one question remains. What should happen when the report produces 10 pages?
Do you want to be able to give it a page number you want the image being generated for? Or do you want to have a HUGE image including all pages?

What image formats do you need, will jpeg be enough?

Cheers,
Dietmar.

Hi Dietmar,
Have you ever tried to install the JasperReportsIntegration on a Oracle Weblogic server?
We are struggeling with the configuration of the datasources.
Any help would be appreciated.

Kind regards,
Guido Zeelen

Hi Guido,

no, I haven't installed it on Weblogic yet. But I am working on a new release where I embed the Oracle JDBC layer into the war file, then the configuration will be identical on all j2ee servers.

Cheers,
Dietmar.
