    Anybody here ?

    Vincent Sellier Newbie


      Is this project still active ?
      Does anybody made it work with success ?
      It is certainly possible because Noël made some screenshots. I propably missed something somewhere ;).

      I'm trying to make the svn content ( http://anonsvn.labs.jboss.com/trunk/labs/reportingservices/) working with the current cvs version of jboss. I have also tried with the 4.0.3 and 3.2.7 versions but with no results until now (I don't past the exceptions here because the main goal of this post is to know if the project is still active and if the svn version is working). I will continue my investigations ;).

          Hi Vincent,

          Not very active but still here. I really need some help, if you think you can, you're very welcome. I see you're in Paris, I'm here too. Maybe we can drink a beer somewhere, let me know.

          I've committed changes with a simple test. Try it. I'm still using jboss4.0.2 for my tests but should be easy to use with latest JBAS4.

          I've found someone that will help me. I'm trying to set him up. Thus RS will be more active.

            Hi Noel,
            Thanks for your response.

            It works better on the 4.0.2 with your lasts commits.
            I still have a problem with the reports-console =>

            2006-01-04 11:12:42,561 ERROR [org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[jboss.web].

            I'm searching why I have this problem. Do you have an idea ?

              Hi Vincent,

              How are you planning to use the Reporting Services? We at JasperSoft have released a lightweight report repository that works within JBoss Portal, allowing folks to add/view/run JasperReports directly in the portal. It doesn't currently have support for scheduling and pushing reports, but that could be added.

              If you are interested take a look. You can download it from the JasperReports project on SourceForge - its the JBoss Reporting Portal package. If it generates enough interest we will add more functionality to it.

                copy from Vincent's mail :
                the problem is solved by setting "UseJBossWebLoader" to true in jbossweb-...sar/META-INF/jboss-service.xml.

                I will fix this later.

                  Just to say, we consider using JBoss Reporting Portal. On one hand, I have a few worries. Virtually nothing seems to have been written on the web since the announcement last October. I'm missing some kind of tutorial to get me started. And are we tying ourselves to JBoss, giving up JSR-168 compliance? On the ohter hand, JBoss Reporting Portal seems to be just the right tool for our needs.

                  Best regards

                    I am very interested in seeing this product developed. We created a simple reporting server for our customers last year using JasperReport/iReports/JasperAssistant and Tomcat, but due to competing projects it has been stalled in an Alpha state.

                    Since then we have drastically increased our use of JBoss as opposed to just Tomcat (mostly due to JMS related needs), and I would support anything that would provide a more widely supported solution over our home-grown prototype.

                    In particular, I would like the incorporation of anything that would help deal with our particular environment:

                    1) Support (e.g. using JAAS) for multiple customers on multiple servers (including multiple customers on the same server) in our heterogeneous ASP/Customer owned server environment. We don't have the luxury of dedicating separate hardware, or even separate instances on the same hardware, for each customer.

                    2) Report scheduling, queueing, and load balancing to be flexible, customizable preferably with existing technologies; in particular, Quartz (open symphony), JBoss Messaging (including clustering hopefully available in version 1.2).

                    3) Easy management of different types of datasources from the different servers, including different customers on the same server; XML, JDBC, etc., keeping in mind the need to isolate customers information from one another.

                    We have already accomplished much of the above using Tomcat, JasperReports, but since last year I see a lot more power and flexibility if I were to incorporate JBoss, JBoss Messaging, and Quartz into the solution.

                    I realize our situation is likely far beyond the current scope of JBoss Reporting, but if there was any way to help this project progress, I would be more than willing to contribute in any way I can.

                      Is this project like dead? or is it still "Under Construction". I would be very interested in looking at it at some point if it ever gets off the ground. I'm sick of trying to integrate MS Reporting Services with Java and not succeeding!

                        Dude , this project is not dead .
                        We are working on it on our spare time .

                        Members of the core team will meet sometime next week . we will probably be able to give you a timeframe for the next snapshot .

                        Stay tuned !

                          It could be great to integrate MS Reporting one day ;)

                          Let's keep that in mind ... we never know !

                            Hello everybody !

                            I have made some modifications on SVN last days !
                            We can now have a reporting services preview which can work fine !

                            I fixed some bugs on ReportConsole and gone on others parts (maven / MyFacesTree ...

                            I will add a new post when the documentation will be able !

                            @soon !
