Hi,
I am building a database application in Java and now i need to print some reports ....
I need to get the data from the database .. do some calculations , and then print in on paper.
I checked online and got some tools like JasperReports, jfreereports, ReportCat, etc. so I was wondering if somebody can suggest whats the best.
In my report I will have to print more than one table on one page.
for example:
if I have 4 Invoices. then i will have 4 tables .. one for each invoice.. and each table will contain
the elements for that Invoice.If all can't fit on one page then it needs to go next page.
I would like to do all this stuff in Java without using any reporting tool ... but I am not really sure how this can be
done .. can someone give me an idea ... as per how this can be done .. will really appriciate all the help.
Thanks in advance,
sandsouza

JFreeReports is used reasonably well and has good ratings. I am sure you will not go wrong by choosing that.
