I'm upgrading from an older (5.1) version of Jasper Reports in my java project.  I've re-compiled a report in the new Tibco Reports Designer.  When I try to run it, or any other report, I get no output.  I downloaded and compiled the jasperreports 6.0.2 source and am using it for debugging the problem. screen shot of last executed statement  I've included a screen shot of the last statement that tries to execute.  It's line 823 in JasperCompileManager in function getCompiler.

This is a working app and I believe I've updated all the required libraries.

I don't catch any exceptions (at least not any I'm expecting) and the program returns to my finally statement after trying to run the jasper report.  The only other thing I can add is that if I hover over the JRCompiler  item in the previous sentence it says, JRCompiler is not a known variable in the current context.  Not sure if that helps.  It also doesn't hit the catch (Exception e) statement it just fails.  Not sure how to progress from here.

Try deleting old compiled report files and then see if new ones are created. You can do that by searching by timestamp

Yes, done all that.  The new reports do compile without error.  What I can't seem to do is generate any output using the compiled reports and the new jaspersoft library.

Unfortunately, afaics, Jasper does no logging whatsoever, which if i'm right is very poor. You should be able to log it to tell what's (not) going on

I'm following up on some other lines of inquiry, but nothing works at the moment.  I'll get back in a few days with more info.

Fixed it.  Needed to download some additional software for the version I was trying to run.  I can now develop and run reports using the TIBCO jaspersoft tools.
