You use straight java for the formulas. Input an expression that evaluates to a result of the same type as that expected by the field. Example:

If the field is type INTEGER and you want to insert the value 0:

new Integer(0)

I don't think you can have control structures but I may be wrong. Experiment by using the jasper samples to compile a report template into java code, and see what you can do. Personally, I prefer to encapsulate complex functions in a separate class that I then add to the classpath. It keeps things clean.

The 'If ... then... else' statement will look like something this:


$F{account} == null ? new Double(0) : $F{account}



? - then

: - else
