Does Rails have support for reporting engine ? I have my existing J2EE app which uses an open source reporting engine. If I port it to rails I was thinking whether Rails has something ?

The only Ruby reporting software I'm aware of is Ruport, although I haven't used it so I can't comment on it.
I agree. Here's the link:
