Here are some more details for jasper http://www.rizwan.in/node/268 iReport is cool designer and greatest open source tool. If you are eclipsed then jasperassistant is a better choice http://www.jasperassistant.com/ however using iReport and its report wizard you can create good looking reports in couple of hours.. (remember to put your jt400.jar inside the lib folder of iReports and then configure your datasource with iSeries drivers accordingly :-) for iSeries reports) Best Regards Rizwan http://www.rizwan.in -----Original Message----- From: java400-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:java400-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Pete Helgren Sent: Tuesday, November 29, 2005 10:52 PM To: Java Programming on and around the iSeries / AS400 Subject: Re: Java for Batch and Reporting 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) Pete Helgren Jon Paris wrote: >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 > > >
