Solution

As the problem arise in the previous part, the following is the discussion on the solution. Basically, the cause of the appearance of the error message is because of the following pom.xml file definition after searching thoroughly :

<dependency>
<groupId>net.sf.jasperreports</groupId>
<artifactId>jasperreports</artifactId>
<version>6.10.0</version>
</dependency>

Generally, the error will also appears upon using another higher version of the jasperreports. So, start from jasperreports with the version of 6.10.0 tall the way to the higher version from 6.11.0, 6.12.0 and 6.13.0, it will generate the same error. So, the solution is actually similar with the one available in the previous article with the title of ‘How to Solve Error Message Failure to find com.lowagie:itext:pom:2.1.7.js6 when building and compiling Java Project in Netbeans IDE’ in this link. The solution is very simple. Just add the following script configuration :

<exclusions>
<exclusion>
<groupId>com.lowagie</groupId>
<artifactId>itext</artifactId>
</exclusion>
</exclusions>

In the end, the full configuration of the pom.xml will be like the following :

<dependency>
<groupId>net.sf.jasperreports</groupId>
<artifactId>jasperreports</artifactId>
<version>6.10.0</version>
<exclusions>
<exclusion>
<groupId>com.lowagie</groupId>
<artifactId>itext</artifactId>
</exclusion>
</exclusions>
</dependency>

Last but not least, do not forget to build and compile the project once more. If there are no other errors appear, the process for building and compiling the project will be a success.
