Are there any freely downloadable report generation tools for web based reporting.
The application is a simple one with JSP, Java , servlets, DB kind of app.

(Just want to display the stuff appearing in web pages to either PDF, word or excel - not yet decided the format)

There are some open-source libraries for this. Take a look at iText (PDF), FOP (different formats) and POI (word/excel).
