Dear I have got myself Dig in to this Info , and i think this info is not complete in order to learn how to develop or run first report , becuase author is offering his own book to readers ,you may find it at : http://jasperreports.sourceforge.net/more.docs.html I m simpley looking forward to have simple steps or necessary Files , inorder to run a HelloWorld Type Report!
In order to generate JasperReports u need to follow these steps... assuming that u have already downloaded the necessary files. 1. Compile the .jrxml/.xml file to generate the jasper file.(Again, insist that u check one of the sample .jrxml file present in the sample reports) 2. Use Map to pass parameters for the next step 3. Fill the report by passing the .jasper file as a parameter 4. Export to desired report format by passing the .jrprint file as a parameter and not the .jasper file
If u are still confused,check the jasper report samples. Open one of the build.xml file from any of the samples, u'll know when to use which file.

Don't say that the info is not complete, the tutorial(and other docs) does help u to create a basic report and export the same.
