Java code :

    InputStream fileInput = getApplicationContext().getResource("/WEB-INF/reports/myjrxml.jrxml").getInputStream();
    JasperReport jasperReport = JasperCompileManager.compileReport(fileInput);
    HashMap map = new HashMap();
    map.put("Field", "test");
    JasperPrint jasperPrint = JasperFillManager.fillReport(jasperReport, map);
    byte[] output1 = JasperExportManager.exportReportToPdf(jasperPrint); 
    String filename = "d:/test.pdf";
    FileOutputStream fo = new FileOutputStream(filename);
    fo.write(output1);
    fo.close();

Answer

You are confusing the report data with parameters. I don’t see that you have any report data, which is why you are getting an empty report. Further, you are filling a parameter named “Field” instead of the actual report data. So you either need to create a parameter called “Field” in your report, and then refer to it in the detail band, OR you need to pass the report data into your report something like

JRBeanCollectionDataSource data = new JRBeanCollectionDataSource(dataSet);
jasperPrint = JasperFillManager.fillReport(jasperReport, parameterMap, data);

where dataSet is a collection, such as List<?>. Within the List, you would have an object where one of the properties is Field.
