I'm Jasper. No, wait, I'm Jesper!

Since you're talking about JSP, with Jasper you probably mean the JSP compiler that is included with Tomcat. You don't normally need to know much about Jasper. Tomcat invokes it automatically behind the scenes to compile your JSPs.

Hi all,

Thank for the reply. I think I have asked the wrong question. However now I understood about Jasper(i.e., it is related to the tomcat :roll: )

If we want to use JSP with Excel or Servlet with Excel for the report generation from the the databsae, is there any tool available?

Aha. So you did mean JasperReports - A Kumar already mentioned it above.

Note: JasperReports is something entirely different than the JSP compiler included with Tomcat, although they both have the name "Jasper".

It's also entirely different from
Jasper - ZX Spectrum Emulator - allows Java enabled browsers to run ZX Spectrum games
Jasper - Java Class File Disassembler
JASPER (Java Simulation of Protocols for Education and Research)
and
Jasper - a COM object that is able to read and execute code from existing Java classes and expose the classes as COM objects.

And those are just from the first page of googling 'java jasper'.
