i am working on a web app. i need to generate adhoc reports. the architecture of application is MVC2, using Command Pattern and DAO.

i haven't know about the reporting APIs like JasperReport and JFreeReport. I really dont have that much time to analyze both of them and then choose one of them. so, could you people suggest me which one is better and easily understandable.

i have read the comparison in one the topic in this forum. but that was not enough. what i know about is,

JFreeReport uses Swing Table Model - Code centric
JasperReport is more XML Centric

kindly, help me out further
