JRI Publisher

JRI Publisher

I’ve just published a new tool for JasperReportsIntegration

JRI Publisher is a Webmin module for installing, configuring, and managing JasperReportsIntegration.

JRI Publisher can serve as a stand-alone Oracle Reporting solution or to simply looking to get up and running quickly and easily with JasperReportsIntegration.

While JasperReportsIntegration was designed for Oracle APEX, JRI Publisher does not require APEX or installation of the SQL Schema files (you can, of course still use with APEX).

JRI Publisher takes just a few minutes to install and has been tested on CentOS 7 and 8 and Ubuntu 18.

Install Tomcat 9 on CentOS 8

This post will cover installing Tomcat 9 on CentOS 8.

We’ll be using a bash script below, which is commented so you can see the steps.

We’ll install the latest stable release of Tomcat 9.x from Tomcat.org, as well as OpenJDK 8.

We’ll also update the tomcat-users.xml file to enable manager-gui and admin-gui roles and set their passwords to a random string.

Finally, we’ll create a service file and enable Tomcat to run as a systemd service.


As root, save the above script as tomcat9-centos8.sh and make it executable.

Run the script:

Upon completion, the GUI and Manager passwords will be displayed as below:

The random passwords will also be saved as auth.txt in the root directory.

You should now be able to access Tomcat at:

http://domain.com:8080 or http://IP:8080
