While creating new reports i follow the below steps: 1. create jrxml file using ireport. 2. compile the file to produce .jasper file by passing required parameters. 3. display the report in desired format html. pdf, etc.
So basically i have the report template/design in jrxml file. Depending on the requirement/parameters i populate the values.
Now i want an advanced report. where the report column needs to get build dynamically and the value for those columns will also be queried dynamically.
For example: A report that displays the number of products available in each branchs. So the branchs can vary over time.
Product chennai Bangalore pune ......... Total abc 1 5 4 10 vnn 3 1 1 5 Total 4 6 5 15
Inorder to do it we need to build the report dynamically. Any one can provide me with some solutions.
Some solution which i read from forums are 1. generate the xml dynamically and produce a .jasper file. 2. generate jasperreports using API
Can you provide me with some simple examnples.
Awaiting for immediate response. As i need to a immediate solution. ------------------------------ Ubirithi
