Isnt there an installation description for the Software and a chapter about the runtime configuration?

no, the developer ran documentation was left just a bunch of end users who knows nothings on the back end.
the website( in php w xampp) run successfully, but when i need to generate the report, it gives out java code instead of the actual output, the report.
it did not gave out any errors tho.
i have a tomcat server running as well.

It sounds like Jasper can't find the java run-time environment. Do you have the latest Sun Java installed?

Tomcat is working correctly?


My comment is only about general problems with java, and not based on experience with Jasper. I wouls suggest you Google on Jasper configuration.

If this whole thing was ported intact from a different system, you may need to re-install Jasper.

Good Luck

yes i thinks tomcat works fine. the JRE as well.

Code: Select all
java -version
java version "1.6.0_13"
Java TM SE RUntime Environment (build 1.6.0_13-b03)
Java Hotspot(TM) Client VM (build 11.3-b02, mixed mode, sharing)

and i am moving the site to another location.
how do you re-install jasperreport?
installing jasperreport would be just including the JasperReport .jar file in the classpath of my application rite?

how do i do jaspereport with xampp?
do i need to edit the httpd.conf file or the php.ini ?

please help.thank you in advance.

Those are really questions that only someone in the Jasper community can answer well, sorry. I'm sure there are forums and mailing lists for the maintenance of Jasper.

Good Luck
