I need to migrate from Jasper reports 4.5.1 to Jasper reports 6.4.3. There is many already created and working .jrxml reports.

However i have a problem because it is not possible now to load it to JasperReport object using loadObjectFromLocation(String) (method is deprecated and not exists at all), and then set parameters and generate report.

What is now in Jasper 6.4.3 best way to load .jrxml files from location, point is that all old .jrxml files should work without much change.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Nenad,

I also have reports created in version 4.5.1 and also in older ones.
So I tried update JasperReport library in my applications on version 6.4.3 and for me everything works and generated result form 6.4.3 library is the same as was when using older library.
But I don't use loadObjectFromLocation(String) method. In which class is it located?

I load reports in this way if compilation is not needed:

... or this way if compilation is needed:

JasperFillManager.fillReport() and JasperCompileManager.compileReport() takes not only InputStream (as in my case) but also String for file name.

What I realized when migrating is that JRExporter interface is deprecated so instead of this:

I should do it like this:

I hope I helped you at least a little bit.
