JasperReports 5.0.4 released

JasperReports Library 5.0.4 Change Log

  • new HTML exporter implementation added, which uses HTML tables to render the report content,
    but still supports overlapping elements by arranging them in separate layers.
    This new exporter implemented in the net.sf.jasperreports.engine.export.HtmlExporter class also
    supports report interactivity and is now the preferred way to export to HTML, being used by
    the JasperExportManager class and all other convenience and utility classes in the JasperReports
    library and its provided samples;

  • the ODS exporter refactored so that it behaves more like the XLS exporters and thus supports
    a significant number of XLS export configuration properties and parameters;

  • new <hyperlinkWhenExpression> introduced for hyperlink definitions, complemented with export time
    configuration properties to control the appearance of hyperlinks depending on the export format;

  • new cells available in crosstab structure, to allow defining headers for column groups in
    the top left corner of the crosstab, where the unstructured crosstab header cell is normally rendered;
    these new cells overlap the former crosstab header cell, if present, but allow for their content
    to stretch in accordance with column group header cell stretching;

  • new shared virtualizer implementation added to allow the use of a separate swap file per report;

  • added support for localization in the exceptions raised by the JasperReports library;

  • added configuration properties for controlling the interactive features of the table component
    such as column sorting, filtering and formatting;

  • minor bug fixes and improvements;
