JasperAssistant is a visual report designer for JasperReports, a popular open-source reporting engine. It is built on top of the Eclipse's plug-in architecture and its main goal is to help you create JasperReports report definition files through an intuitive graphical interface.

What's new:

* Report export and preview wizard. Supports PDF, Excel, HTML, CSV and XML formats.

* New report page settings dialog. Includes column resize tool.
