Hi All,
WE need a reporting web based tool for our database. I looked for open source reporting tools jasper reports and Jasper Reports does not provide any piece of explanation on how to install and how to get it work. I searched google, but it didn't help. I thought this platform may have some help for us. I am looking forward to receiving some help from You
Thanks in advance.

What in the Getting Started and Tutorial documentation didn't you understand? In other words, TellTheDetails -- what specifically are you having problems with?

Did you deploy all of Jasper Report's dependencies? (The one you list, for example, is part of iText: please consider using a service like jarfinder.com--it will save you a lot of time.)

Following book by Packt has a recipe which describes how JasperReports works with Tomcat.

JasperReports 3.6 Development Cookbook.

One chapter of the book is available for free download. This chapter demonstrates how to work with complex mathematical expressions. You can download the chapter from the following URL.

Well, I'm pretty sure the sample chapter isn't going to help solve the actual question, not is it particularly relevant to "getting started" type questions, which are covered in the JR documentation.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
