draw a rounded rectangle or a arc!?

i would like to create a pdf report as follow

a. In the columnHeader and columnFooter, they are "rounded" rectangle for showing field name and total respectively.

b. In the detail section, its length is floating which depend on how many items are included

I have tried to use tag <rectangle> , but it cannot allow to across two or more sections. If i draw a rectangle at background, it is hard to estimate length of rectangle becuase content to display in detail section is not fixed. Furthermore,  it seem have no tag for drawing arc in jrxml , right?

If the pdf report is not "rounded" rectangle as above shown , i still draw it line by line . In order to achieve above design , can anyone give me some hints/idea ?

Thanks

the only way I can think of is to create the column header and footer as images (e.g pngs which are better with high contrast stuff than jpgs) and then the vertical lines using the line tool.
