I'm understand that visualize.js comes only with the commercial version...
Has anyone had expirience embedding without it?
more specific questions:
1. in the comunity edition, is there a way other then using i-frame to embed in a web application?
2. Can I embed input contols in my application?
What I figured until now is that I can use the rest api to get the data of the report but without visualization
this does not help very much...
With the community edition, it's possible to embedded a report using REST v2 API. Visualize.js and even Jaspersoft Studio is just using these APIs. You can add your own visualization logic by using jquery.
