I am trying to add a reporting module in my existing web app. I am using Struts & IBatis frameworks in my app.
This is waht I have so far... In my Actin class... 1. I compile .jrxml & get jasperReport object. 2. create dataSource object by passing a List in JRBeanCollectionDataSource() constructor. 3. get JasperPrint object by calling JasperFillManager.fillReport(jasperReport, parameters, dataSource) 4. create exporter object from JRHtmlExporter class & call exporter.exportReport(). 5. forawrd control to the display jsp to display the report.
The problem is... It doesn't forward to the JSP I specified in struts-config.xml. I think exportReport() method take control & process the request w/o giving control back to struts. I also tried doing all of the above on my display JSP & just forwarding request to this JSP from my action class, but of no use.
Is there an easier way of configuring Jasper Reports with struts? I would appreciate any help.
