How to configure Jaspersoft as a Windows service.

Environment

Jaspersoft 7.8 and Tomcat 9.0.37

Resolution

Prerequisites: It is necessary to have the correct Java executables referenced in the PATH environment variable.

  1. Navigate to the bin folder inside the Tomcat folder.
  2. Type "service install JasperReports", JasperReports being the name of the service, and execute it to create the service.

  3. Edit the newly created service by executing "tomcat9w.exe //ES//JasperReports" from the above directory.
  4. We see a service dialog open up. Navigate to the Java tab to edit the JVM configuration.
  5. Add the below JVM parameters under section Java Options:
    -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC (This determines the Java Garbage collector method for Jasper)
    -XX:+CMSClassUnloadingEnabled
    -XX:MetaspaceSize=256m
    -Duser.home=C:\Users\Administrator (This is the home folder of user with whose account Jasper was installed).
  6. Specify values for Initial Pool Memory and Maximum Pool Memory. Thread stack size remains as 2048.

  7. Apply the changes and launch the service from Windows services console.
