My end goal is to generate a JasperReport that contains field text ouput in combination with the contents of a rtf. I have tried several things and posted many request for help but to no avail. I thought that maybe I could convert the rtf into a jpg and have an image control on the JasperReport to handle the display. This needs to be done in browser envionment.

Well, if you can get it to render in a JEditorPane, then the approach I outlined above is a real possibility.
Many Swing components can be constructed and used without being realized (i.e., visualized). You may need to set the java.awt.headless property in that case to prevent strange things from happening on the server.
I would first write a little application that visualizes it, though - just to make sure its output is what you'd expect it to be...
