Hi Stefan,

did you look at the Apache site? We used FOP to generate pdf and POI to export data to Excel. As far as I know there's also the possibilty to export data to Word and other parts of MS Office in POI.

Hi Frank,

i did. but the problem is, that poi only exports to excel and word. but i didn't find any support for Powerpoint.

For word also Jasper is an alternative. there u can export reports to rtf, and this can be read in word. but the main part is ppt-files. and i only found api which i have to pay for.

Hi Stefan,

sorry I couldn't help you
Could you let me know when you find a solution? Although I do not need it right now, I think it's always good to know what's available so you don't have to write everything by yourself.
