.jasper File Extension

Developer: Jaspersoft
File type: JasperReports Data File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .jasper. Files with the file extension .jasper can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .jasper files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .jasper file?

The JASPER file extension is used for files that are created by JasperReports. These files containing the JASPER extension are also known as JasperReports Data Files. These files contain the contents of a report saved in a binary format and compiled from a .JRXML file. When it comes to generating reports in a repeated manner, JASPER files must be deployed using Java applications. When the report data is read from a specific source of data, the reports are then, filled resulting to generated formats such as .JRPRINT, .RTF, .TXT, .HTML, .PDF, .XLS, .CSV, and .XML. The JasperReports program is known as an open source programming library wherein users can create programmatic reports in Java using this software. It runs on Windows, MAC and Linux operating systems. Aside from JasperReports, JASPER files can also be opened using Jaspersoft iReport. This is a report designing application that allows users to create reports with layouts that contain images, subreports, etc.

how to open a .jasper file?

Launch a .jasper file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .jasper file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .jasper files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .jasper file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .jasper file will open the correct application.

Jaspersoft JasperReports

JasperReports is Java-based software used as a business reporting tool. Teodor Danciu created it in 2001, but it was Panscopic, which later became JasperSoft, that further developed the software when it acquired the intellectual property rights over JasperReports in 2004. The software takes data from any source, such as MS Excel, and converts it into charts and graphs that can be manipulated and reconstructed on the fly during presentations. The reports can be exported into several formats, including PDF, HTML, RTF, ODT, TXT, CSV, XLS, and XML files. Businesses may download the software's code for modification under a GPL license before integrating it into their system. Meanwhile, companies may buy the software for an out-of-the-box installation for quicker deployment and full-fledged technical support from JasperSoft. This program simply needs an installation of JAVA JDK 1.6 or higher and a JDBC 2.1 driver to run smoothly.

Jaspersoft iReport

JasperSoft's iReport Designer is the Open Source tool used in creating visually appealing graphics for printing financial reports on paper and rendering the charts on a webpage. Rather than simply printing a text report, users can add images and background designs or change the color scheme based on a theme. Aside from the basic pie charts and bar graphs, iReport also outputs data into scatter, bubble or time-series graphs or creates a multi-layered Gantt chart for project management. Moreover, developers may customize the reports with scripts and enhance their functions with widgets. Reports are exported into popular formats, which include PDF, HTML, DOCX, RTF, XLS, CSV, XML, Text, or OpenOffice files. The pages may be saved as PNG images, too. Lastly, users can easily drag and drop elements into the page, edit colors and shapes, and add text through an accessible tools menu.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .jasper files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .jasper. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
