Question for current users

2002-12-28 07:00

Hi, I am thinking of using Jasper on some of my companies projects. I downloaded it a couple of days ago to have a look.


I have been able to create some simple reports with relative ease. But I have two questions:


1- Is Jasper currently in a state where I can depend on it? I mean I will be writting the code for

reports, but I will not be designing them, so when

I get a new report I need to know that Jasper will be

able to handle it. Is there anything currently that

Jasper cannot handle?


2- Is the additional documentation (the one we can buy) good? I found the current documentation a bit lacking especially the API docs.

1) JasperReports does not currently produce

crosstab reports.


Also, other users expressed their desire to have

complete control over element formatting using

either expressions for color and font settings or

as I have suggested, using scriptlets.

But the big problem with this is that runtime

element formatting will produce huge documents.

The idea is not yet abandoned.


2) I think you already have the answer for this.


Thank you,

1- while I'm not in production I hope to be so within 30 days. I'll have over 300 users getting reports on a daily basis. So far I haven't found anything Jasper reports can't handle. I use iReports to develop XML files.


2 - yes. Also print the XML file for the firstjasper report from the website. I use this a lot to see how the report was created.
