Finding a Java report writer

I am a VB programmer moving to Java.

With VB I always used Crystal Reports as a report writer. I am planning to do some private database Java work, and I was wondering what Java programmers do when they want to produce database reports. I presume that none of the free IDEs such as JBuilder come with a report writer built in.

I am especially interested in free opensource software, as I am a rather penniless programmer. The report software would need to integrate seamlessly with a Java database application, but I haven't decided what database I am going to use yet.

I would be grateful for recommendations for free or very cheap software.

Many thanks,
