Ah. I follow you now.

Would you mind if I added additional approaches to your code base?

Remember for Jasper and BIRT I am only *calling* the report.  The report
is populated by the Jasper or Birt engine, not by RRE.  The data query
and formatting is all handled by the report engines in Java, not by
RRE.  So, RRE just wraps the entire engine for Jasper and Birt.

The iText stuff is more like traditional I/O.  Actually, the iText
wrapper is like the POI stuff that Scott did for HSSFR.  Read a record
in SQL and then write to the iText API with the data.

HTH,

Pete
