1198076 - How to specify temporary directory location to store .ssd and .tmp files that are generated when user views report using JRC

Symptom

When a user is viewing a report with the Java Reporting Component (JRC), the application creates .ssd and .tmp files in their temp folder or in the application server's temp folder.

How do you specify the temporary directory location to store the .ssd and .tmp files that are generated?

Cause

The JRC application creates these temporary files when rendering the reports. The JRC uses the System property of the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) to determine the location of the temp directory.

Resolution

You can change the location by using the following property:

System.setProperty("java.io.tmpdir","your temporary directory here");
