Hi- I have a web application that runs on a Websphere box. The Websphere version is an older version that requiires JVM V.1.4. I have recently upgraded to JDK version 1.6 on my development box. For my reports, I compile the .jasper files on the development box and deploy those along with the corresponding .jrxml file to the server. Now, after I compile the .jasper files on my development box, my reports are blowing up on the server with a Java version mismatch error. I looked at the Jasper APIs and cannot find an overloaded signature of the JasperCompileManager.compileReportToFile() method that takes a version number as an argument. Does anyone know of a way to get the JasperCompileManager.compileReportToFile() method to compile for an earlier version of Java (short of reverting my JDK back to v.1.4 on my development box)?

Thanks!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
