Hi - I'm pretty new to Jasper Reports but I have been testing a few ideas out with it. Ideally I want to be able to input a JSON file (generated from another system) and create a report based on that file that is then output as a PDF.
I have manually added a JSON file (renamed as XML extension) and then created a data source from it. I can then build a report using the data in the JSON file.
What I haven't yet figured out is how to automate this process if there are large numbers of these files being generated.
For example can I set it up somehow so that I pump on the JSON files using an API and that automatically triggers the report to run and generate a PDF and send it somewhere (either a directory or via email etc.)
Any tips would be much appreciated.
