Hello everyone,

I'm a newbie to the combination just said above. I have started reading about it, and I've through the following material:


So far, so good. I got my first steps about JasperReports and iReports, which were unknown to me until now. But I still have some doubts.

1. When using hibernate with iReports, what kind of datasource should I use? Javabeans set datasource, custom jrdatasource, or jrdatasource provider? I suppose it's number 2, right? I'm kinda lost here because I could easily create a JDBC datasource and test it, but still have had no success in creating one for use with hibernate. I can't create a report using a JDBC datasource and then use it in my system with JRBeanCollectionDataSource, can I? How should I to to create one for this use?

2. How will I call the report from my jsp? I know it's kinda basic, but I have seen no examples.

3. It's a webapp, so it may be a little ugly if acrobat shows up everytime my user requests a report. It's there any way to show the report in the page, maybe in a frame or something?

If you have any material on the combination I'm using, please, show me 'cause I'd like to read it.

Thank you all so much.
