Hi everyone,

I am new here and also in using struts. I have this problem I encountered when I integrate jasper report with struts.
I am able to produce the pdf of my report but then i want it to be place it inside a frame in my jsp page.

What will I do? any suggestion?


public class GenerateReportAction extends Action {

private static Logger log = Logger.getLogger(GenerateReportAction.class);

public ActionForward execute(ActionMapping mapping, ActionForm form,
HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
throws Exception {

ActionForward forward = new ActionForward();
GenerateReportForm jform = (GenerateReportForm) form;

InputStream is = JSFHelper.getCurrentLoader("").getResourceAsStream("/jasper/sampleLetter.jasper");"value of InputStream " + is);


JasperReport jasperReport = (JasperReport)JRLoader.loadObject(is);
JasperPrint jasperPrint = (JasperPrint)JasperFillManager.fillReport(jasperReport,new HashMap(),newJREmptyDataSource());

request.setAttribute("resourceReports", jasperPrint);

catch(Exception e){



forward = mapping.findForward("success");
return forward;



public class GenerateReportForm extends ActionForm {

//nothing here



in my jsp:

<html:form action="generateReport">

<input type="submit" name="cmdGenerate" id="cmdGenerate" value="Generate" class="buttons" />

<iframe id="pdfFrame" width="100%" height="500px"




<form-bean name="generateReportForm" type="sample.form.GenerateReportForm"></form-bean>

<action path="/generateReport"

<forward name="success" path="/jsp/genRepLet.jsp"></forward>

Thank you in advance.
