Integration with JSP

This tutorial will help you to integrate Pivot Table Component with Java JSP. Follow the steps to set up a simple Java JSP project with Flexmonster using Maven and Eclipse EE:

Step 1. Create new Dynamic Web Project

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

  1. Click File. filejsp
  2. Create a simple Maven Project in Eclipse. projectjsp
  3. Select default Workspace location. projectdirjsp
  4. Select the Maven archetype as: maven-archetype-webapp and click on next. projectarchetypejsp
  5. Fill out details below and click Finish. This step creates Maven Project in your Eclipse Environment. projectarchetypeparamsjsp
  6. If you see 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. propertiesjsptargetedruntimesjsp
  7. Your Maven Project should look like this. projecttreejsp
  8. Now build project with “Maven Clean Install” to check there isn’t any dependency issue with project. runasjsp runjsp terminatedjsp
  9. Right click on Server -> Add and Remove. addserverjsp
  10. Select FlexmonsterJSP -> Add -> Click Finish. addserver2jsp
  11. Start 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/ folder. flexmonsterjsp

Step 3. Add Flexmonster taglib

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

Step 4. Add Flexmonster dependencies to index.jsp

    • At the top add:
<%@ taglib prefix="flexmonster" uri=""%>
    • Add jQuery and Flexmonster libraries:
<script src="scripts/flexmonster/lib/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="scripts/flexmonster/flexmonster.js"></script>

    Step 5. Create Pivot Table inside index.jsp

    Please note, licenseKey is your license or trial key, so you should replace XXX with an actual key:


    Step 6. Build and run the project

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

    You will see Pivot Table with sample report loaded.
