Java – Generate PDF in Specific Version using JasperReports

Some devices can only process specific versions of PDFs. This post shows how to generate specific PDF versions in Java and JasperReports. If our devices are considerably old, chances are they can only process older versions of PDF documents.

Java, JasperReports, and Other Requirements

We used the following items for this post and most of them are already old in 2021. Using specific requirements could help us port the solution to newer platforms or tools.

  • Windows 7 Professional SP1
  • Eclipse – Kepler Release
  • Java 1.7 (1.7.0_67 – Windows x86)
    1. NOTE: Set source target and level is Java 1.6
    2. We have not tested it yet with source target and level 1.7
