Integration with JSP

This tutorial will help you integrate the pivot table with Java JSP. Check out a sample project on GitHub or follow these steps to set up a simple Java JSP project with Flexmonster using Maven and Eclipse EE:

Step 1. Create a new Dynamic Web Project

Before creating a new project, set up Maven and Apache Tomcat Server in your Eclipse Environment.

  1. Click File.
    filejsp
  2. Choose New -> Maven Project.projectjsp
  3. Select Use default Workspace location.
    projectdirjsp
  4. Select the Maven archetype as: maven-archetype-webapp and click Next.
    projectarchetypejsp
  5. Fill out the details below and click Finish. This step creates a Maven project in your Eclipse Environment.
    projectarchetypeparamsjsp
  6. If you see the error “The superclass javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet was not found on the Java Build Path index.jsp /Flexmonster/src/main/webapp” then add Apache Tomcat to your Targeted Runtimes.
    propertiesjsp
    targetedruntimesjsp
  7. Your Maven project should look like this.
    projecttreejsp
  8. Now build the project with “Maven clean install” to ensure that there aren’t any dependency issues with the project.
    runasjsp
    runjsp
    terminatedjsp
  9. Right click on Server -> Add and Remove…
    addserverjsp
  10.  Select FlexmonsterJSP -> Add. Then click Finish.
    addserver2jsp
  11.  Start the Tomcat server.
    tomcatjsp
  12.  Visit http://localhost:8080/FlexmonsterJSP/index.jsp to see your result.
    projectstartedjsp

Step 2. Copy Flexmonster scripts

Copy flexmonster/ from the download package to src/main/webapp/scripts/.
flexmonsterjsp

Step 3. Add Flexmonster taglib

  1. Copy flexmonster-taglib.jar to src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/lib/.
  2. Copy flexmonster.tld to src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/lib/.
  3. Add the following code to src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/web.xml inside the <web-app> node:
<taglib>
    <taglib-uri>http://flexmonster.com/taglibs</taglib-uri>
    <taglib-location>/WEB-INF/lib/flexmonster.tld</taglib-location>
</taglib>

Step 4. Add Flexmonster dependencies to index.jsp

    • At the top add:
<%@ taglib prefix="flexmonster" uri="http://flexmonster.com/taglibs"%>
    • Add the Flexmonster library:
<script src="scripts/flexmonster/flexmonster.js"></script>

    Step 5. Create the pivot table inside index.jsp

    Note that licenseKey is your license or trial key, so replace XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX with an actual key:

    <flexmonster:pivot 
      name="pivot" 
      componentFolder="scripts/flexmonster/"
      licenseKey="XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX"
      toolbar="true"
      report="http://www.flexmonster.com/download/report.xml"
    />
    

    Step 6. Build and run the project

    Choose Run -> Run and follow these steps.
    runpivotjsp
    runconfigjsp

    You will see the pivot table with the sample report loaded.
