I am using Jasper Reports and servlets to display an html report. I have used the demo code for reference, except that my application connects to a MySQl db through jdbc.
I am able to display the report in IE. The problem is, if the report is huge, then after displaying it, the browser hangs when I try to unload the report and display another static html page in the same browser. The browser hangs even if i hit the Back button. However, with netscape, this problem doesnt arise.
Browser problems may come from missing close tags of html. Bad tables (no header tag with width information).
Or just to big tables. Maybe create a very large table as static html to verify that your browser can handle such a large table.
