Jasper Error - Document root element "jasperReport", must match DOCTYPE root "null".

I m getting below error when trying to compile jasper report.

SEVERE: Parse Error at line 2 column 438: Document root element "jasperReport", must match DOCTYPE root "null".
org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: Document root element "jasperReport", must match DOCTYPE root "null".

below is how my .jrxml file looks like.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<jasperReport xmlns="http://jasperreports.sourceforge.net/jasperreports" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://jasperreports.sourceforge.net/jasperreports http://jasperreports.sourceforge.net/xsd/jasperreport.xsd" name="BasicReport" pageWidth="595" pageHeight="842" columnWidth="555" leftMargin="20" rightMargin="20" topMargin="30" bottomMargin="30" uuid="36d77059-4949-41ea-ad78-41d8786ef809">
    <property name="ireport.zoom" value="1.0"/>
    <property name="ireport.x" value="0"/>
    <property name="ireport.y" value="0"/>
    <parameter name="Title" class="java.lang.String"/>
    <parameter name="MaxSalary"


It can be fixed by introducing <DOCTYPE ... > to .jrxml file as below.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE jasperReport PUBLIC "//JasperReports//DTD Report Design//EN" "http://jasperreports.sourceforge.net/dtds/jasperreport.dtd">
<jasperReport name="scriptlet">
<property name="ireport.zoom" value="1.0"/>
    <property name="ireport.x" value="0"/>
