Anyone using JReport (www.JInfonet.com) for ColdFusion reporting?  It looks like a nice product that can be easily integrated into CF apps.  I downloaded an eval copy 3 weeks ago, and have yet to get anyone at Jinfonet to return my call to give me the license key (and pricing information).  Should I be worried about that?!  I'd love to know what this beastie costs (I usually figure that if a company doesn't post pricing info on their website, then it's too expensive for me). Any comments on this product, or good alternatives (more capable than CFReport) for a nice reporting tool that provides ad-hoc ability, would be really helpful.   Thanks all, Reed

Considering it have a server component, a designer component, etc = $$$. I wish there were such a tool better than CFReport but not bank breaking. -------------------------------------------------------- Eric J.

But allowing a client to make their own reports?   That doesn't help from what I can tell.   We have to program reports in CF, not allow clients to make their own flavors...we get this request all the time. -------------------------------------------------------- Eric J.

You could use JasperReports and give this custom tag a shot: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=117212 I haven't used it yet but it may prove to be of value.

There's no reason why the client can't make their own reports using the bundled CF 7 report builder, although it may be tedious to set this up.

It requires RDS connection to the CF server though, and that put the stop to that...can't have them having DB access all over the joint. Plus it is difficult to use for most folks...wishes wishes.  lol -------------------------------------------------------- Eric J.

I've been evaluating openreports for awhile.  Drop a SQL in and bamm, HTML paging and export to xls, pdf, etc.  Has a report designer tool too and works with birt.  Runs on tomcat simply, have not got it running on JRun though.  Oh, cost, its free.  Oh, users can schedule the report to be emailed to them too...in xls, pdf, etc.   oreports.org IIRC.

Hmmm..how do you create reports without access to the database?  As far as RDS access goes, it's just HTTP over port 80, so firewall stuff shouldn't be a concern (don't know if that is for you or not).   In CF8 you'll have RDS Sanboxing (limit DSN and file access to a sandbos per user/group) and per-user Admin access, so this can be properly locked down, while using the Query Builder portion of Report Builder. Having said all that...you can aboslutely run CF Report Builder and create reports without RDS access...you just don't use the Query Builder.  Just tell the end user the schema of the query(ies) you're going to feed the report at runtime, and you're good to go. RDS-free. Damon ----- Excess quoted text cut - see Original Post for more -----
