The following tools are required on the local machine to start creating Jasper reports for Mambu:
- Jaspersoft Studio 5.5.0 is the tool used to create all custom reports to be uploaded to Mambu. Jaspersoft Studio is a free report designer provided by Jaspersoft. For full compatibility with our integration we recommend the 5.5.0 version.
- MySQL Community Server 5.7: all report templates are to be built upon the Mambu Database Schema, which can be easily imported into MySQL Server. For full compatibility with our integration we recommend the MySQL Community Server 5.7 version. Note that during the installation process a username and password will be required to be set up. Make sure these are stored for later usage for the Data Adapter setup.
- JDBC Driver for MySQL is a software library used to intermediate the connection between Jaspersoft Studio and the MySQL database. As a note, the JDBC driver should just be referred while setting up the Data Adapter from Jaspersoft Studio, it doesn't have an actual installation process.
- MySQL Workbench (recommended) is an easy-to-use tool to import and manage databases on MySQL servers. This can be used in the initial phase of creating a report, when designing the structure of the query for data extraction.
