Hi

Yes have a look at BIRT, its really cool and has a full plugin for Eclipse to to report development, it uses Jasper Reports in the background but they seem to have implemented it really well.

What do you want to do exactly? online reports? generate PDF's?

For reports, there's JFreeReport, although my impression is that JasperReports is more popular. Jasper can also generate PDFs.

For general PDF creation needs, check out iText (for API-driven generation), and FOP (if you have XML data).
