Creating Alphabet Numbering on Jasper Report

Usually jasper report provide a numbering, accessible using REPORT_COUNT variable, but today my friend Edward Barchia asked me something interesting, how can i create a simple numbering using alphabet instead of number. Well basically, it’s actually quite easy.

Below is the image, how i do it.

Fixing Jasper Report Error, “Font ‘Arial’ is not available to the JVM.”

Yesterday, i had a weird error when deploying to my Red Hat machine. Somehow my pdf generated report is throwing exceptions, it said “Font ‘Arial’ is not available to the JVM.”. A little bit weird since on my development machine, everything is running well.

After i run this command,

fc-list | grep "Arial"

I found out that “Arial” font isnt installed on my RedHat server, a little bit tricky due to im unable to run “yum” command because the server is behind a network firewall. So my workaround is download a .rpm, and installed it manually. After several minutes googling, i found a very recommended .rpm installer.


http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-f11.html#ttf

I installed it using

 sudo rpm -ivh msttcore-fonts-2.0-3.noarch.rpm

And check my installed fonts

fc-list | grep "Arial"

Now i can see “Arial” fonts on my list of installed fonts on RedHat, restart my tomcat and my pdf reporting is running well again.

Here is the complete stacktrace of the error,

21:57:12,135 INFO  [stdout] (AsyncLogger-1) <2014-09-29 21:57:12,131>,[http-/0.0.0.0:80-94]>>[ERROR]Font 'Arial' is not available to the JVM.

Weird Blank Report When Using JasperReport

Yesterday, ive found a very weird error when im trying to print my report to pdf using jasper report. Somehow it show a blank report when i’m printing my report and my log file shows no error at all despite there is nothing on my pdf file. I’m using a simple servlet and jasper report classes to generate my pdf files and show it on browser.

This is what my report looks like

And this is part of my sourcecode

   protected void doPost(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) 
        throws ServletException, IOException {
		// set header as pdf
        response.setContentType("application/pdf");

        // set input and output stream
        ServletOutputStream servletOutputStream = response.getOutputStream();   
        ByteArrayOutputStream baos = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
        
        FileInputStream fis;
        BufferedInputStream bufferedInputStream;
        
        String nama = "";
        String alamat = "";

        try {        	
        	if(request.getParameter("nama")!=null)
            	nama = request.getParameter("nama");
			
			if(request.getParameter("alamat")!=null)
				alamat = request.getParameter("alamat");
        	
        	// get report location
            ServletContext context = getServletContext();
            String reportLocation = context.getRealPath("WEB-INF");
            
            // get report
            fis = new FileInputStream(reportLocation + "/report/LaporanSatu.jasper");
            bufferedInputStream = new BufferedInputStream(fis);
            
            // fill parameters
            Map<String, Object> map = new HashMap<String, Object>();
            map.put("nama", "%"+nama+"%");
            map.put("alamat", alamat);
                                               	
            // export to pdf            
            JasperReport jasperReport = (JasperReport) JRLoader.loadObject(bufferedInputStream);
            JasperPrint jasperPrint = JasperFillManager.fillReport(jasperReport, map);
            JasperExportManager.exportReportToPdfStream(jasperPrint, baos);

            response.setContentLength(baos.size());
            baos.writeTo(servletOutputStream);

            // close it
            fis.close();
            bufferedInputStream.close();            
		} catch (Exception e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
		} finally{
			servletOutputStream.flush();
            servletOutputStream.close();
            baos.close();
		}        
	}

Well the workaround is actually very easy, i only need to add a new empty datasource (JREmptyDataSource) in JasperFillManager parameters

   protected void doPost(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) 
        throws ServletException, IOException {
		// set header as pdf
        response.setContentType("application/pdf");

        // set input and output stream
        ServletOutputStream servletOutputStream = response.getOutputStream();   
        ByteArrayOutputStream baos = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
        
        FileInputStream fis;
        BufferedInputStream bufferedInputStream;
        
        String nama = "";
        String alamat = "";

        try {        	
        	if(request.getParameter("nama")!=null)
            	nama = request.getParameter("nama");
			
			if(request.getParameter("alamat")!=null)
				alamat = request.getParameter("alamat");
        	
        	// get report location
            ServletContext context = getServletContext();
            String reportLocation = context.getRealPath("WEB-INF");
            
            // get report
            fis = new FileInputStream(reportLocation + "/report/LaporanSatu.jasper");
            bufferedInputStream = new BufferedInputStream(fis);
            
            // fill parameters
            Map<String, Object> map = new HashMap<String, Object>();
            map.put("nama", "%"+nama+"%");
            map.put("alamat", alamat);
                       
                        	
            // export to pdf            
            JasperReport jasperReport = (JasperReport) JRLoader.loadObject(bufferedInputStream);
            JasperPrint jasperPrint = JasperFillManager.fillReport(jasperReport, 
              map, new JREmptyDataSource());
            JasperExportManager.exportReportToPdfStream(jasperPrint, baos);

            response.setContentLength(baos.size());
            baos.writeTo(servletOutputStream);

            // close it
            fis.close();
            bufferedInputStream.close();
            
		} catch (Exception e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
		} finally{
			servletOutputStream.flush();
            servletOutputStream.close();
            baos.close();
		}        
	}

This is the screenshot for my successful report.

How to Handle Jasper Report’s NoSuchMethodException

I was generating an ordinary report, when suddenly i met a weird error. My Exception showed a net.sf.jasperreports.engine.JRException and a java.lang.NoSuchMethodException: Unknown property '' when im using Jasper Report’s JRBeanCollectionDataSource. I tought it was because my java bean is not Serializable, but changing my bean to Serializable still didnt fix my errors.
Here is my complete stacktrace

        at org.apache.commons.beanutils.PropertyUtilsBean.getProperty(PropertyUtilsBean.java:715)

Here is my source code snippet, take a look at line 12, that is where my exception happen.

  @Override
    public ActionForward execute(ActionMapping mapping, ActionForm form,
            HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
            throws Exception {     

        List<Log> logs = logService.select();

        FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream("/ejournal.jasper");
        BufferedInputStream bufferedInputStream = new BufferedInputStream(fis);

        Map<String, String> map = new HashMap<String, String>();
        JRBeanCollectionDataSource jrbcds = new JRBeanCollectionDataSource(logs);

        JasperReport jasperReport = (JasperReport) JRLoader.loadObject(bufferedInputStream);
        JasperPrint jasperPrint = JasperFillManager.fillReport(jasperReport, map, jrbcds);
    }

Well actually it’s very easy to fix it, you should either

  • Remove the empty field descriptions from the JRXML.
  • Set the field descriptions to match the bean property names.
  • Pass false as isUseFieldDescription when creating the bean data source, e.g. new JRBeanCollectionDataSource(data, false).

This is how i fixed it,

 @Override
    public ActionForward execute(ActionMapping mapping, ActionForm form,
            HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
            throws Exception {     

        List<Log> logs = logService.select();

        FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream("/ejournal.jasper");
        BufferedInputStream bufferedInputStream = new BufferedInputStream(fis);

        Map<String, String> map = new HashMap<String, String>();
        JRBeanCollectionDataSource jrbcds = new JRBeanCollectionDataSource(logs,false);

        JasperReport jasperReport = (JasperReport) JRLoader.loadObject(bufferedInputStream);
        JasperPrint jasperPrint = JasperFillManager.fillReport(jasperReport, map, jrbcds);
    }

I hope it can help others, because i spend some ridicoulously amount of time looking for this workaround.

Creating Web Based Reports using Jasper Report

It’s easy to export reports to PDF if you do it in desktop application, but what if you had to do it in a web-based application? Here im trying to demonstrate on how to use servlets to generate a pdf based reports, using JasperReport libraries of course.

First, as always, a simple postgresql table,
on database “test”, schema “test”.

DROP TABLE master;
CREATE
    TABLE test.master
    (
        nama CHARACTER VARYING(30) NOT NULL,
        usia SMALLINT,
        CONSTRAINT idnama PRIMARY KEY (nama)
    )

Next step is a very simple jrxml file, i named it reportTest.jrxml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Im using Hibernate as my ORM library, thats why i need a java bean and a hbm.xml file,

package com.edw.report.bean;

public class Master  implements java.io.Serializable {

    private String nama;
    private Short usia;

    public Master() {
    }

    // other setters and getters

    @Override
    public String toString() {
        return "Master{" + "nama=" + nama + " usia=" + usia + '}';
    }
}
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE hibernate-mapping PUBLIC "-//Hibernate/Hibernate Mapping DTD 3.0//EN"
"http://hibernate.sourceforge.net/hibernate-mapping-3.0.dtd">

<hibernate-mapping>
    <class name="com.edw.report.bean.Master" table="master" schema="test">
        <id name="nama" type="string">
            <column name="nama" length="30" />
            <generator class="assigned" />
        </id>
        <property name="usia" type="java.lang.Short">
            <column name="usia" />
        </property>
    </class>
</hibernate-mapping>

And this is my main hibernate configuration file, hibernate.cfg.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE hibernate-configuration PUBLIC "-//Hibernate/Hibernate Configuration DTD 3.0//EN" "http://hibernate.sourceforge.net/hibernate-configuration-3.0.dtd">
<hibernate-configuration>
  <session-factory>
    <property name="hibernate.dialect">org.hibernate.dialect.PostgreSQLDialect</property>
    <property name="hibernate.connection.driver_class">org.postgresql.Driver</property>
    <property name="hibernate.connection.url">jdbc:postgresql://localhost:5432/test</property>
    <property name="hibernate.connection.username">postgres</property>
    <property name="hibernate.connection.password">password</property>
    
    <mapping resource="com/edw/report/bean/Master.hbm.xml"/>
  </session-factory>
</hibernate-configuration>

And a factory class to load my hibernate configuration file, it’s actually by default load hibernate.cfg.xml file.

package com.edw.report.util;

import org.hibernate.cfg.AnnotationConfiguration;
import org.hibernate.SessionFactory;

/**
 * Hibernate Utility class with a convenient method to get Session Factory object.
 *
 * @author edw
 */
public class HibernateUtil {
    private static final SessionFactory sessionFactory;

    static {
        try {
            sessionFactory = new AnnotationConfiguration().configure().buildSessionFactory();
        } catch (Throwable ex) {
            System.err.println("Initial SessionFactory creation failed." + ex);
            throw new ExceptionInInitializerError(ex);
        }
    }

    public static SessionFactory getSessionFactory() {
        return sessionFactory;
    }
}

And finally, my servlet class. It use Jasper Report libraries, and export my report to PDF by changing its header to application/pdf instead of text/html. Take a look at line 53, class FileInputStream load my reportTest.jasper file that located under WEB-INF folder.

package com.edw.report.servlet;

            JasperPrint jasperPrint = JasperFillManager.fillReport(jasperReport, new HashMap(), jrbcds);

            // export to pdf

            response.setContentLength(baos.size());

    @Override
    protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
            throws ServletException, IOException {
        processRequest(request, response);
    }

    @Override
    protected void doPost(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
            throws ServletException, IOException {
        processRequest(request, response);
    }

    @Override
    public String getServletInfo() {
        return "Reporting Servlet";
    }
}

Dont forget to register your servlet to web.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<web-app version="2.5" xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/web-app_2_5.xsd">

        <servlet-name>ReportServlet</servlet-name>
        <servlet-class>com.edw.report.servlet.ReportServlet</servlet-class>
    </servlet>
    <servlet-mapping>
        <servlet-name>ReportServlet</servlet-name>
        <url-pattern>/ReportServlet</url-pattern>
    </servlet-mapping>
    <session-config>
        <session-timeout>
            30
        </session-timeout>
    </session-config>
    <welcome-file-list>

Here is my Netbeans’ project screenshoot



Btw if you are using Struts 1, it will be easier. All you have to do is create an Action class to handle all the reporting, and register it to struts-config.xml. Here is my example.

package com.edw.action;

public class ReportAction extends org.apache.struts.action.Action {

    private static final String SUCCESS = "success";
    private Logger logger = Logger.getLogger(ReportAction.class);

    @Override
    public ActionForward execute(ActionMapping mapping, ActionForm form,
            HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
            throws Exception {
        
        ServletContext context = getServlet().getServletContext();
        String reportLocation = context.getRealPath("WEB-INF");

        List<Log> logs = logService.select();

        FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream(reportLocation+"/report.jasper");
        BufferedInputStream bufferedInputStream = new BufferedInputStream(fis);

        ServletOutputStream servletOutputStream = response.getOutputStream();
        ByteArrayOutputStream baos = new ByteArrayOutputStream();

        Map<String, String> map = new HashMap<String, String>();
        JRBeanCollectionDataSource jrbcds = new JRBeanCollectionDataSource(logs);
        JasperReport jasperReport = (JasperReport) JRLoader.loadObject(bufferedInputStream);

        JasperPrint jasperPrint = JasperFillManager.fillReport(jasperReport, map, jrbcds);

        response.setContentType("application/pdf");
        JasperExportManager.exportReportToPdfStream(jasperPrint, baos);

        response.setContentLength(baos.size());
        baos.writeTo(servletOutputStream);

        // close all
        fis.close();
        bufferedInputStream.close();

        servletOutputStream.flush();
        servletOutputStream.close();

        return mapping.findForward(SUCCESS);
    }
}

dont forget to put your Action class on your struts-config.xml

<action path="/report" type="com.edw.action.ReportAction"/>

Hope this can help others, have fun. (*)
