Hi All,
We have an application which is used to create verious complicated reports. The existing applcation is in applets. The user can select an report and can select various filters and will run the report. There are around 40 plus filers that can be appliaed to a reports. Every report will give more than 10,000 records so has pagination as well.

Now we are thinking of re-designing the application. I am thinking of struts framwork with extensive caching.

What would be the design suggestions for this kind of applications? I am also thinking of reusing most of the existing functionalites.
