Hi i'm a newbie trying to learn something. I downloaded ireport and have designed my report. It connects to the database and retrives the value with no problems. When i build the report i'm able to see it as a Pdf and it works.

My question is how do i link this to a jsp page. Lets say when i click a button the pdf report appears. The only file i seem to have in the folder is classic.jrxml Thank you for your help...

I downloaded jasperreports-1.2.7-project. Trying out the webapp sample. It required me to download an "ant" tool. Then i did this step

"Once you have ANT installed, launch "ant -p" from the command line in this directory
to learn more about what tasks you could run to build and test the sample."

clean
javac
prepare
viewDesign
viewDesignxml
war

No other instructions were given after this. How do i carry on..

Ok managed to figure out how to use the ant tool. I have done until "ant prepare"

When i try running the jsp file i get the following error. Why is it so..

C rogram FilesApache Tomcat 4.0workStandalonelocalhost_webappjspcompile$jsp.java:3: Package net.sf.jasperreports.engine not found in import.
import net.sf.jasperreports.engine.*;

import net.sf.jasperreports.engine.util.JRProperties;

Ok managed to solve the problem. Did all the steps accordingly.

Until fill report. "The compiled report design was successfully filled with data."

Then the last step, export report. It gives me an error saying

The requested resource (/webapp/servlets/pdf) is not available.

Why is that so.
