I am working on a project of a social networking website for online picture management.I have been told to include jasper reports for the admin.The project is supposed to be only in java based technologies.
Now i have no idea what reports are and where are they displayed on a website ,how they are made and what is their use.

Somebody please explain it to me preferably with an example with a website.

Jasper reports are exactly what their name suggests.They are reports displaying statistical data.
One can have the function of opening japser reports in pdf ,xls (and other file types ) from their website.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
