Hi All,
Is it possible to generate reports using Java Servlets? To generate customised reports using Java Servlets or JSP?

Ramachandra,
Welcome to JavaRanch!

What kind of reports are you trying to generate? Excel? PDF? HTML? It's definitely possible to generate customized reports, but the answers vary by report format.
