Dear Ranchers.,
I'm new to Java Swings and I'm creating an application called Inventory System. For displaying the values in the database, i want to use a reporting system in the format of a P&L Account.

1) How can i use the reporting in Java Swings.
2) Is there any Java API for reporting
3) If there where can i find the sample coding

Please reply as soon as possible

Thanks in advance

Hai,

you can use the Crystal reports for reports in swings. In crystal reports they were providing "ReportViewerBean" as a component to add it to the swing containers

Crystal Reports is a very powerful tool, but if I'm not mistaken, it seems Crystal Reports is not free. It costs money. Please Gopinath correct me if I'm mistaken.

I would recommend you to take a look at Jasper Reports and iReport.

Jasper Reports is widespread used around the world and well known on Java community. Even better, it's free.

Hi Aravind Prasad,

This is an easy one. Generate report using iReport designer and import the same using a java code.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
