iReport - Printing field in the back

I'm with a doubt about reports.
Is it possible to create a field to be printed on the back of a report?
I'm developing a report where in front print a document and in the back print some additional informations.
Is anybody know how to do this?

That isn't really a question of generating the report, it's a question of printing it. If your printer can handle double-sided printing, then this is easy. If not, you'll need to print one page, put the paper get back into the printer and turn it over, and print the second page.

The original question is mine also.
I'm sure there is an attribute somewhere in some object that tells the printer to print on front and back.
But which one?
I have searched through almost every Java object that starts with "Print" and cannot find it.

Can someone please point me to the correct object?
I agree. Here's the link:
