Hi guys,

I am working with struts 1 for my database interface. I need a compatible tool for report generation and needed some advice on this. Please suggest some, I was considering Jasper reports but I don't know if there could be any other such tools. Thanks in advance

What do you mean by using Struts 1 for your database interface?? Struts is normally a web framework and good design principles dictate it to be modelled on the presentation tier.

Anyways, coming to your question as you have mentioned Jasper Reports is a good solution. Also try Cognos reporting if your app is really big.
