A Domain is a metadata layer that models and presents data accessed through a data source. You can use Domains to structure the data and present it in business terms appropriate to your audience. You can also limit access to data based on the security permissions of the person running the report and provide translations for static report text. Domains in JasperReports Server are used to create Ad Hoc views and reports.
This chapter covers the process of creating a Domain and defining its contents. For instructions about creating views based on Domains in the Ad Hoc Editor, see Creating a View from a Domain. Domains defined in the server can be accessed through Jaspersoft Studio as well.
