Configure Genero Studio for Java

In most cases, the Java configuration is handled during installation. Follow this procedure to change the default Java configuration values.

Before you begin:

  • You have installed and licensed Genero Report Writer.
  • You must know the path of the Java SE Development Kit installation directory.

If you want to use Java, the value of the JAVA_HOME environment variable, found in the Java SDK environment set, must be set to your local JDK directory.

  1. Select Tools >> Genero Configurations.
  2. Under the Environment Sets section, select Java SDK.
    The JAVA_HOME environment variable is listed under the Environment Variables section.
  3. Select the JAVA_HOME environment variable.
  4. Click the Edit icon to open the Environment Variable dialog.
  5. Set Value to your local directory for the JDK.
    Tip: The Type combobox tells you what type of value is expected.
  6. Click OK until all dialogs close.
  7. Run the OrderReportJava demo to verify your configuration.
