What I love about JReport is that the entire JReport Server can be packaged as a single WAR file and can be deployed on any operating system and any application server. Most of our competitors require massive installations, some as much as 7 CD’s for a specific OS. For anyone selling software the JReport solution makes a whole lot more sense. JReport has the abillity to be packaged with the application, run on any platform, and require no separate installation or administration. The entire solution can be embedded in the application and privately labeled, giving the end customer a seamless solution they can use without additional training. The vendor can then, build a set of predefined templates which the end user is allowed to modify with JReport Server Live or they can provide full Ad Hoc reporting with JReport Live for the end user to create their own custom reports.
However, for customers who want even more control, the software vendor can sell them JReport Designer and give them the full power of JReport to create complex reports to suite their needs. With just a short 2 day training course on JReport Designer the end user has the full capabilities of a complex java reporting system at their finger tips.
