Need guidance on usage of Jasper


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I am developing an online application whereby a user can create personlized invites and greetings. I am now required to add a module which will let user print his invites using a hosted print infastructure.

In doing this, the technical requirement is to generate a PDF file in a specific format which can be shared with the print vendor. I am now confused between two things:

1) Should I use a Java based PDF generator libraray like iText

2) Should I use a BI tool like Jasper for this task?

To begin with we want the business process to be simpler.

User will fire the order of printed invites. After checking out and successful payment confirmation, we shall generate (same time or as a batch job) PDF files from the event's data. These PDF files will be mailed to the print vendor as email attachments for actual printing.


Please help me decide which solution is good for me. My app is based on Spring/Hibernate. I am looking at scalability of this operation, reliablity of PDF generation, good response time. I heard the BI tools provide features like caching etc. Can those help speed up the process?
