I recommend JasperReports. There are others (Crystal Reports, JFreeReport), but I've not worked with any that are as easy to use/integrate as Jasper. (Crystal has some features that I wish Jasper had, but Crystal is annoying to use in Java, and it costs money. And JasperReports is open source, so if I had the time and inclination, I could add those features...)

Raj, Joel included a link in his post to the homepage of JasperReports. Click on the underlined word and the website will be opened in your browser. The website has lots of information, documentation, examples etc., so have a look.
