With the Pentaho reporting engine you can take data from many types of datasources (different DB engines, MDX, plain files, etc.), and create reports in many types of outputs included pdf files,

Actually, if that's the "iReports" I'm thinking of, which is a GUI designer for Jasper Reports, it's not a case of "just like iReports". You'd actually use iReports. One of Pentaho's reporting engines is Jasper.

To be more precise, Pentaho has its own report engine, but the Pentaho BI server (through the use of Pentaho xactions) is ready to run Jasper or Birt reports.
