Question about JasperReports functionality

Is it possible, with JasperReports, to generate a pdf report and a text report together. The pdf report would be a letter containing information obtained from records in a database. The text file would contain additional information that would be used by a Linux script to write a copy of the pdf file to a samba server for viewing online.

FYI.  I do not have any experience with JasperReports but was told by someone who does that it cannot write out more than one file at a time.

1 Answer:

If you schedule a report in JasperReports Server, you can select several output formats. It's now also possilble to write programs to use the same report object to generated different output formats.
