Hi,
I am first time working on report genaration using java.
for thai i had downloaded jfreereport zip file and also added jfreereport-0.8.7-8.jar in lib folder in java home .

I have knowledge of core java,jsp,jstl,servlet. In gooogle seach i read that it is neccesary to have knowledge of swing to genarate report.
Is it true that without swing it is not possible genarate report.

Any suggestion is highly appreciated.

Thanks nad Regards
harshal

If you don't have legacy code using JFreeReport I'd advise to use JasperReports instead. JFreeReport is dead for all practical purposes, while Jasper is still being developed.

No, you don't need Swing knowledge to create reports. Jasper comes with many examples that show how to do it. I believe it has some advanced capabilities that do require Swing programming, but generally, there's no need to.
