Installing Jasper Report Server
This is a windows installation file, (careful, that we installed the 32 bit version)
It will contain the following
Therefore, it is a complete suite, including the application server.
The Apache tomcat failed to run as Windows Service (maybe it is 32bit, vs 64 compatibility) or windows 8 isssue. However, you can start it through Command Line
This command will read configuration information about the server from SERVER.XML located in
One interesting value is
To launch the adminpage of Jasper Report Server
The username and the password are as highlighted below (jasperadmin)
Note: We immediately ran Into java memory problem PERMGEN
One quick fix could be
Modifying the file CATALINA.XML located at
And adding the following JAVA options parameter
set JAVA_OPTS="-Djava.awt.headless=true -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -server -Xms1536m -Xmx1536m -XX:NewSize=256m -
XX:MaxNewSize=256m -XX:PermSize=512m -XX:MaxPermSize=1536m -XX:+DisableExplicitGC"
You are installing a new database and a new application server.
I would be nice to install the report server objects on to WLS or Glassfish as these are the application servers we currently use
Note: we read on the net that Oracle is not supported as a repository for Jasper report server.
