Hey guys. Can anyone tell me the difference between Parameters and Fields in iReport? I don't know if it's a relevant information, but I'm using "JavaBean set datasource" option when I set the datasource.

Thanks.

Got it: when I use fields I can use manipulate the objects with operations (i.e., I can call methods from the String class if the field is the String type).

Have a nice week. Can close this, guys.
