General J2EE: Need advise on low cost Web Reporting
Hi all, I need to develop basic reporting capabilities in my J2EE application but don't need all the fancy abilities that commercial products have. Need to have ability to provide filtering, groupings, totals, drilldowns and export to different formats. I would go with Open Source and pay for support, but I couldn't find any LGPL licensed reporting engine/tool. I cannot use GPL since it requires to open my source code. May be for the basic capabilities I'm looking to implement the cheapest way would be to develop something inhouse... Please advise...

Have you seen Jasper Reports?? Its pretty promising and matured product. Also has tools like iReport and JasperPal to support.
If you only need to view the reports online, and can design the report offline, then BIRT is a very good reporting engine: www.eclipse.org/birt/ The report designer is excellent but as I said, offline. Johnny Webworks JEExplorer - file explorer for your Java web applications
Hi Eugene, You can see some demos of using the BIRT Designer at BIRT Exchange. It's very easy to use. (http://www.birt-exchange.com/modules/wfdownloads/index.php?contenttype=1) I would recommend BIRT based on your question because it is easy to add filters, groups, and totals, and you can create drill-down reports from one report to the next in a wizard very easily. It is designed for the web and outputs in formats like PDF, HTML, XLS, DOC, PPT, etc and comes with a nice web viewer to integrate into a webapp. If you need the user to design all this through the web and more report management stuff like scheduling and security then you are getting into the commercial products like BusinessReport Studio and iServer Express.
