Hello Talend Community !
I found a good component (i guess) on talend exchange, named : tJasperReportExec created by jlolling .
But i can't use it, because i need to install some external jar. So ... i click on "Installer", and one by one i click on every .jar to add external that I found in folder of the downloaded component.
At the end, the window of module list close automatically and ... nothing append...
But libraries appears on my talend workspace ! At "C:\Talend\TOS_DI-Win32-20151029_1337-V6.1.0\workspace\.Java\lib" , they're all jar needed for the compenent.
It's seem like, the component didn't find modules emplacement...
What am i doing wrong ? Can you help me please ?
(Version Talend Open Studio for Data Integration 6.1.0, i tried with the 64 and 32 bits version and in admin mode too ... )
Solved! Go to Solution.
Can the custom component tJasperReportExec be available from your palette? We have sent an email to this custom component's author and then come back to you as soon as possible.
First of all, please tell us the steps you have done to install the component.
There are 2 different ways to install a component.
1. via Talend Exchange - should work, I have not done this for ages
2. via a separate folder and the Preferences - described in the mentioned article from Shong.
If you have still problems you can contact me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi ! Thanks for your reply !
Yes the component is available on my palette, and i add my component with a separate folder. I already use a lot of external component like (tExecutors, tFileExcelSheetInput, tFlieExcelWorbookOpen ... )
Hard to say, what went wrong here. The studio behaves sometimes like a ugly diva.
If you like we can have a skype session to solve this issue.
Send me an email at email@example.com if you would do that.
Yes, i got the same problem. I can't install libraries ! Component says "Modules Required", so I click on "Install", assistant for install external jar open, I add external jar and when assistant's window close, nothing change.
I try to add libraries in preferences/Java/User Libraries . But nothing change.
I have other question, it not production problem, just decide test component relating to this thread
I have report, which work and in Studio, and from Server, and this report also call by Talend (by tJasperServerExec) - and all fine
but when I call same report by tJasperReportExec it return error:
1. The method TODAY() is undefined for the type TS_Full_Month_1503266734703_414756 value = DATEFORMAT(TODAY(),"yyyy-MM"); //$JR_EXPR_ID=0$
TODAY() is build in function in Studio
I try it and as standalone component, as well as I try to load tJasperReportLibrary - same result
why it could be possible? do we have some functions restrictions?
No, we do not have any restriction. I use this function TODAY() also in my reports.
So it cannot be a general problem. I can only guess it has something to do with a version conflict of the used studio version and the version of the jasper library used in the component.
The function TODAY() is very simple and returns simply the current date as Java object.
Since ages this function has not changed in the library.
I have just updated the component.
I had problems in the past to get a more recent library for the functions. Now I have found the repository in which Jaspersoft puts the functions-lib and use this now.
I will test the new release and post here when I have published it. Hope it helps.
I have created a new release of the component - v 2.5
You cannot install this release over the Exchange view in the studio, instead use the more reliable way to unpack the zip file in the custom component folder and use the Preferences dialog to load the new component.
This release contains the most recent libraries.
