I wrote a "getting started" tutorial a while back. It won't make you an expert but it will help you "get your feet wet".


It can be found at: http://ensode.net/jasperreports_intro.html


A couple more JasperReports articles I wrote:






And last (but not least), there is a tutorial at the JasperReports home page:




Hope that helps,

Thanks heffel!

your article is really useful for me!


Just wanna ask you one more question:

did Jasper report manage to view dynamic data from the always changing database by chart?

Or iReport is better? Thanks!

I'm not sure I understand your question. If you mean if JasperReports can update reports "on the fly" if data changes in the database then the answer is no. A report will only display the data as it was at the time the report was created.


Regarding iReport, it is a GUI report designer for JasperReports. It can help you create JRXML files, but it won't add capabilities to JasperReports.
