maybe teodor or sb. else can answer this...


i'm currently looking into JasperReports to see how it works. as far as i understand, from a JasperDesign instance a .java file is created, compiled and serialized to result in a JasperReport (.jasper).


what is the advantage of this? why not just serialize the JasperDesign object?


thanks in advance.

The java file is used for calculating field values. Therefore you can use any function or method also from your own code in the report. Try to set the keep file flag to see the java file.
