Licensing

The license is available for download from the order page after the order was paid. The license is a clear text, digitally signed XML file. The license contains information such as the client name, the purchased product and the type of the license. Do not modify the content of the license file: it invalidates the license.

There are several ways to activate a license:

The first two are used with JasperReports, the last with JasperServer. Each method is described below.

Call setLicense

This method is used with JasperReports.

  1. Download the license to your computer and copy it to the appropriate folder (for example your application’s folder or JasperReports\lib).
  2. Add the following code to your project:

Java

   import com.aspose.words.jasperreports.*;

   // Create a stream object containing the license file
   FileInputStream fstream = new FileInputStream("C:\\Aspose.Words.JasperReports.lic");

   // Set the license through the stream object
   License license = new License();
   license.setLicense(fstream);

Set the licenseFile Exporter Parameter in Code

  1. Download the license to your computer and copy it to the appropriate folder (for example your application’s folder or JasperReports\lib).
  2. Add the following code to your project:

Java

   import com.aspose.words.jasperreports.*;
   AWDocExporter exporter = new AWDocExporter();
   exporter.setParameter(AWExporterParameter.LICENSE, "Aspose.Words.JasperReports.lic");
   exporter.exportReport();

Set the licenseFile Exporter Parameter in applicationContext.xml

This method is used with JasperServer.

  1. Download the license to your computer and copy it to the \apache-tomcat\webapps\jasperserver\WEB-INF folder, where stands for the JasperServer installation directory.
  2. Locate the \apache-tomcat\webapps\jasperserver\WEB-INF\applicationContext.xml file and add the following lines:

XML

<bean id="aw_exportParameters" class="com.aspose.words.jasperreports.AWExportParametersBean">
    <property name="licenseFile" value="C:/jasperserver-3.0/apache-tomcat/webapps/jasperserver/WEB-INF/Aspose.Words.JasperReports.lic"/>
</bean>

Verify that the License Works

Export any report to DOC or DOCX format and check if the report contains an evaluation message. If there is no evaluation message, then the license is working properly.

Aspose.Words for JasperReports injects a watermark when working in the evaluation mode.

When a valid license is activated, there will be no evaluation watermark.
