What report designer to use?
I need a report designer/viewer for Eclipse/Java. I have extensive experience with crystal reports and (the somewhat dated) R&R Xbase, so report designing is not new to me.
I need some report designer to allow the (remote) user to see/print a report from an applet, after it (the report, that is) was generated on the server.
Two names so far BIRT and myEclipse.
I use Fedora Eclipse, in case you wondered...
Tnx 4 shedding some light in the dark, here.
Well, I can add 2 more names to that list to check out: DataVision and JasperReports.
Those are 2 java-based reporting frameworks. I was looking into them when I was trying to do exactly what you are attempting, but to incorporate it into Tomcat. For my purpose, I just ended up creating a jsp page that generated a specific report page and gave the users a print button at the top of that page that wouldn't show up on the resulting printed report.
IIRC, DataVision showed the most promise for allowing the end-user to access and generate whatever reports they wanted/needed, but lack of activity at sourceforge might be a sticking point.
Tnx for this info...I looked at JasperReports, together with iReport (to design the reports) it could be the winner.
My purpose is (I think) quite simple: the user requests a (pre-defined) report with a set of data resulting from a (pre-defined) request. The report has to be web-based callable, no installs on the client side. Of course, a local print-out is needed.
Hmmm-yeah, Jasper Might just do that...
Wellness to you!
