It will show you the license page. Read through it and select y when it prompts

Do you accept this license? [y/n]: y shows up.

It will ask to choose complete install or custom install. Choose custom.

It will ask to select a folder for install destination.

choose the default /opt/jasperreports-server-cp-5.6.0.

It will ask you to use bundled tomcat or existing one. Choose bundled.

Leave the tomcat port as default else assign one like – 8088

Assign one shutdown port as – 8089

Choose Postgresql as Bundled and default port as – 5432

Choose to create sample database and proceed

Now after Jasper Server installation lets start Tomcat server

Setup plsql query adapter
Download extensions for jasperreports-extension


Copy the jasperreports-extensions-3.5.3.jar inside this folder /opt/jasperreports-server-cp-

Now cd /opt/jasperreports-server-cp-5.6.0/apache-tomcat/webapps/jasperserver/WEB-INF
and add one line to classes/


Then edit flows/queryBeans.xml. Change the line

Then edit applicationContext.xml. Search for supportedQueryLanguages and add these to the following for PL/SQL Language. You will find supportedQueryLanguages in two places so add the below lines twice.

Now finally restart the Jasper Server.

    1. Hi Dillip,

      1. Hi Durga,

        I little bit confusion tomcat …. i all ready have the tomcat installation in system.
        But inside the jar folder there is another tomcat … i mean it is installed the other or ?.

        and also after starting the jasper …what is the url i need to use to open in web.

        1. Hi Kishore,
          To check status of Tomcat
          $ ps -ef | grep tomcat

          Do you think both are running on different port ?
          $ sudo service tomcat7 status
          you can either disable/turn off the service.

          Web log in for Jasper, can try with the port number.


  1. Hi Durga,

    is it really necessary to install tomcat , prior to installing, as I have a tomcat installed on 8080, and when I ran this it again asked me for port then I gave 8081. now which one will the jasper use.


    1. Hi Venkata, Jasper report with Tomcat bundled will install Tomcat.. if you have already installed then you can skip installing it. I would suggest to go with bundled one comes with Jasper report.
