Define External font path


How to define an external directory for fonts used in jasperreport.

thank you in advance for your response.

Hi Jerome,

Thanks for your inquiry. Could you please share some more detail about your query?

With Aspose.Words for JasperReports you can export reports from JasperReports and JasperServer to Microsoft Word document (DOC), Office Open XML (OOXML, DOCX), Rich Text Format (RTF), OpenDocument Text (ODT), Web page (HTML) and plain text (TXT) formats.

Please read product and features overview from here:


With iReport, i can create a fonts extension jar : (http://jasperreports.sourceforge.net/sample.reference/fonts/index.html)

When i deploy this jar in the classpath, the Aspose export can't find these fonts (font not find exception).
The native JasperReports export can find these fonts.
