Jon,We are using Jasper Reports although we aren't building the reports in batch, they are run on the fly by the servlet. We are currently "pondering" what to do with batch report processing ourselves. RPG is such a good tool for this that it is hard to justify using something like Jasper to crank out a report (as pretty as it is).
We do use Jasper and have found it quite simple to use. For report designing we use iReport which will compile to a Jasper class. The cool thing is that once you have designed the report, you can just specify different output types (PDF,HTML,XLS, etc) We let the user chose the option as they submit the reports.
Of course, it is all Open Source (http://jasperreports.sourceforge.net http://ireport.sourceforge.net)

Any of you have any experience of coding heavy-duty batch update/reporting functions in Java on iSeries? I'm particularly interested in the performance aspects and if anyone has any exposure to the Crystal or other reporting software. Jon Paris Partner400 www.Partner400.com www.RPGWorld.com
