Differences between Crystal and Jasper iReports


Recommended Posts



-JasperReports does not include a GUI designer for reports although you could add iReport. JasperReports and iReport are Java based which is reflected in their expression syntax.

-Crystal Reports has it's own language.



-Crystal has a mature designer that works quite well, and is straight-forward

for non-technical people to use.


Jasperreports is a "backend" library. it integrates well into web applications and can take data from ValueObjects or the database or other data sources.

It exports well into pdf xls etc.



* Covers iReport as an intuitive and easy-to-use visual report builder/designer for JasperReports, written in 100% pure Java

* Shows how users can visually edit complex reports with charts, images, and subreports, as iReport is integrated with leading open source chart libraries for Java



I am attaching word document with more details.

Please add your comments.
