Editable PDF fields are a feature of Acrobat. If you want to make fields editable, you'll need to open the PDF in Acrobat and edit them there.

Old thread but for reference to those who reached here, I've added a "net.sf.jasperreports.export.text.isInputForm" to switch text field and static text component to pdf form text fields. Just set this property to "true" on static text or text field
