Report to HTML format, anyone done it?

2002-06-26 07:52

Is anyone used JasperReports to generate HTML results. What would be the best solution to do it?

 

1) JasperReports -> XML result -> XSLT transformation to HTML?

Should I export results to xml format and then run it through XSLT transformation.

 

2) JasperReports -> HTML result?

Can I use JR directly generate a html result.

 

3) <Put your favourite method here>

This is where my primary interest lies as well. In fact, I'm surpirsed that this isn't a major force in this project. I'd be interested in others thoughts about this.

This is also a primary interest of mine. From prior comments I gather that Teodor is, quite justifiably, avoiding this due to excessive complexity and lack of standards.

 

XML and PDF are well defined, while HTML/Javascript is full of inconsistencies and incompatabilities.

 

For example, the NetScape 4.7x browsers are very bad at rendering things accurately, yet I have found some fairly obvious stylesheet stuff that it DOES render properly, yet Mozilla 1.0 and IE 5.5 do not.

 

Also, as Teodor has pointed out, how do you display page-based information as HTML? The answer will be different for every person you talk to.

 

Still, I would be interested to continue this thread to get other points of view.

I'm also very interested in this. Our requirement is for support of DOM browsers only--Netscape 4.7 has dropped below 1% usage among our ASP customers--so I suspect the task isn't too difficult given the Jasper-created XML files. Would certainly like to see something in Jasper itself that does this, however.

I am also extremely interested in this. This still isn't on the patch list. Are there plans to incorporate this into JasperReports?

 

drake42, would you mind emailing the patch to me at marksmithurbana@yahoo.com ?

 

Thanks,

Mark

My company has built a Jasper to HTML converter that is straightforward and effective. Rod Lampart was the author of that one. Unfortunately, I'm trying to see the patches and they aren't showing up. Watch the patches list and they should show up soon.

So it appears many people want this ability to export to HTML format.. Also, in the patches list, it seems like Jason has posted patches to export to Excel and CSV. All of these sound very interesting to me.

 

I think JasperReports is absolutely phenomenal. There is nothing even remotely close to the functionality and customization one can do with it.

 

But why aren't these feeatures/patches being added to the codebase? Is that not the direction JasperReports wants to go? Is the team working on JasperReports busy with other stuff and just haven't had time to do this? I'm really interested to know b/c it seems unintuiative for the JasperReports team to create the funtionality to export a Report to XML and not express interest in these great patches.

 

Also Jason, I think the timestamp on your computer may be off. Your posts have some crazy timestamps associated with them..

The JasperReports team ( me :-) ), is indeed busy

these days. I'm struggling to prepare the 0.3.4

version which I'm sure many are waiting for,

because it will finally implement very sensitive

features that have to do with page breaking

mechanisms. Unfortunately I have little spare time

lately.

 

I'm willing to include third-party code into the main

version, especially new printers, but in order to do

that, we have to address some things before.

Pease take a moment and give us your opinion

about these issues here:

Thank you,

Teodor
