I think a good practice is to have a folder for all subreports of a particular master report. JasperReports provides a parameter named "SUBREPORT_DIR", which can hold the location of the subreports folder.

Unfortunately relative URL's don't work in JasperReports.

If your subreports are running around, I don't see any way of finding a simpler solution.

Anyway the use of subreports is comprehensively covered in my book.

Do you mean that we can't define an absolute path for subreport oh man this is insane
Well Bilal I tried to do it manually and it is working but everytime you have to set the path according to client system...is there any way out
