Does anyone know of an embeddable web based Java reporting engine that supports ajax for e.g. pagination and column sorting?
used Jasper a while ago but found it old fashioned and clumsy,
certainly not ajax, perhaps they have improved it in recent years
I also use Pentaho at the moment, but all it really gives
you is an API to access reports that you have written in the report
designer standalone app - I had to write the pagination and JSP
interface myself, plus it's no frills, it just spits out SQL results as
an html table!
I would be interested to know if people just use
e.g. displaytag and hand write each report as needed, or if writing a
custom engine is popular, or if there are other embeddable engines out
It is something that in my opinion is strangely lacking;
there is jbpm for workflows, Apache commons for utils, axis for web
services etc. but nothing modern and "complete" for reporting, even though it is a
significant part of most systems.
