Servoy JasperReports Plugin version 5.0.0 alpha1

Postby Andrei Costache » Thu May 01, 2014 7:43 pm

We are pleased to announce a new version of the Servoy JasperReports Plugin: v.5.0.0.a1.

Please see the ServoyForge corresponding plugin wiki section for details.

For the ones using the plugin source code (and who have not recently updated), please note that v.5.0.0a1 is now head/trunk and the 4.x version of the plugin has a corresponding branch.

Have fun testing. We await your feedback!

Best regards,
Andrei

Andrei,

Since iReports is being deprecated in 2015, is Servoy planning to include Jaspersoft Studio as an installable item (under the 'Help -> Install New Software... -> Work with:' pull-down selection list) where it would become another Perspective to the Servoy Eclipse platform?

Why wait?
Use this link to add new software to the servoy installation:
http://jasperstudio.sourceforge.net/updates/
Alternatively download the stand alone version from
http://community.jaspersoft.com/download
Works for me.

Hi, Tom.

I hope you are doing well.

I installed the stand-alone version of JasperReports Studio, and it works fine. However, I tried to install it as an update to the Servoy Eclipse by following the 'update' link you gave, but the link does not resolve properly:

An error has been encountered in accessing this page.

1. Server: jasperstudio.sourceforge.net
2. URL path: /updates/
3. Error notes: NONE
4. Error type: 403
5. Request method: GET
6. Request query string: NONE
7. Time: 2014-05-05 17:48:57 UTC (1399312137)


If I try http://jasperstudio.sourceforge.net, I get redirected to the JasperReports community page, and I could find no mention of the update there. Is there another way to accomplish this?

Kim,
The way I installed it in Servoy is as follows in the developer:
Help | Install new Software...
Click on Add button to add a new site.
The popup dialog "Add Repository" shows:
Give it a name e.g. "JasperStudioReports" or whatever you prefer.
Specify the location as
Code: Select all
http://jasperstudio.sourceforge.net/updates/

Then OK to close this dialog.
Check/select the box after the "Business Intelligence, Reporting Tools" show up under the Name area.
Then continue with next button etc.

Works fine with me (using Servoy 7.4 and Windows 7)

Kim, are you using the URL in the browser?

What you have to do is launch Servoy Developer, then :

and use the URL in the dialog box that appears.

Yes, that is what I was doing. I didn't catch the link difference in Tom's original reply. I used the 'update' link in the Eclipse 'install new software' section, and it installed correctly.

Thank you both for your help!

Remember that for any new Servoy install you will have to add Eclipse plugins like this each time.
Sorry not to have made the explanation more clear.
Let us know of issues using the studio.
One of the first that I had was to specify the correct "datasource adapter" when I pulled in a iReport (jrxml) file.

My fault...not yours. I misinterpreted the information you gave.

Thanks again for all the help!

Hi all,

This is a crosspost from: https://www.servoyforge.net/boards/13/topics/953:

Just curious what's the status on version 5.00a
It's alpha for nearly a year now:
are people using this version?
are there any blocking issues?

@Servoy: what's the roadmap?

Hi, Marc.

I tried to use 5.00a a few months ago but found it buggy regarding sub-reports and graphics and, consequently, reverted to version 4.0.2.

I, too, am somewhat dismayed at the slow pace of revision to the Jasper Report plugin but attribute it to the workload of getting Servoy 8 up and running along with the recent personnel changes. I don't think the Jasper Report plugin is officially supported by Servoy...but, in my opinion, it should be as many seem to use it. It would be nice to see regular updates to this plugin.

Clear example of the downside of open sourcing of a (much used) plugin...
