Adding mysql jar file in AWS jasperserver instance

Some times we may not find in which location the jasperserver installed in AWS instance ..

If you need to add some jar file (let's say mysql connector jar file) to your jasper server, you need to go lib folder of  jasperserver manually from command prompt and copy the required jar file and then you need to restart the service.. This quite make your work difficult and you require more time.

To avoid all such time consuming things. .. here is a way in jasper server to add a jar file..

1) Go to your datasource folder->Edit
2) Edit Driver and add jar file to the server from your local machine(note you are uploading .jar file from your local machine to AWS jasperserver directly
3)Scroll down and Click on Test the connection.
If the connection is successful that mean you have uploaded jar file correctly. 

NOTE: after uploading .jar file you need not to restart AWS jasperserver instance
