    Can be powerful, but still contains some sloppy bugs for being as old as it is

    If you need a pixel perfect reporting engine, Jaspersoft is going to be one of your best options. For those kind of reports, there are a lot of great features and you can do a lot. That being said, I think they got lazy because they had significant market share and could charge an arm and a leg for it for a long time, and now there are other competing systems coming out that are slicker and cheaper. Hoping that Jaspersoft gets back into a growth phase and cleans up the system while making their prices more competitive.

    Pros

    Powerful features
    Easy to jump between editing design or XML source
    Preview within app works relatively well

    Cons

    Still finding sloppy bugs in designer years after release
    Pricing is extremely high compared to more recently launched systems that are definitely stealing market share
    Some long-requested features have gone unaddressed.

    Helfup report generation.

    Pros

    I could build very complex reports quickly. There was a learning curve for sure but I integrated these with an application I was working on to produce reports used by the company.

    Cons

    Mostly the problem was the integration learning curve. I imagine this would happen with any software. I think their documentation could use improvement.

    I have been using Jasper Studio (iReport) and Jasper Server for the past 8 years and have really enjoyed the capabilities it offers and the ease of use. Continuous improvements have been made to both the designer side (iReport/Jasper Studio) and the report delivery side JasperServer. I would definately recommend you checking them out.

    Pros

    * Easy to use
    * Flexible scenarios for report grouping
    * No cost level available for simple deployment and use
    * JasperServer has ability to automate delivery of reports.

    Cons

    * Hard to find support forums (as a community/free user)
    * Custom data connectors present a challenge I haven't overcome for automated delivery (SQL reports are easy)

    I understand, that inconvenience of this program is most likely caused by the free version.

    Pros

    This product has a lot of usefull tools and quite extensive opportunities to create report and add data sourses.

    Cons

    Frankly speaking this product is highly uncomfortable, it is not intuitively clear how to perform some features or where this features located.

    I really enjoyed my chance to work with Jaspersoft. I thought the software was robust with lots of possibilities.

    Pros

    A quick get up and go reporting solution right out of the box. If you're turn around time is quick - this is a great option.

    Cons

    Once you start tinkering with parts of the package and removing features. Its very difficult to get back to square one.

    Pros

    We've been using Jaspersoft in lieu of SSRS for several years now. The software is updated regularly, new features being added with every release. Jaspersoft supports a large number of data sources, including MongoDB. The support for their product is top-notch. We receive responses to our cases within minutes and most issues are solved shortly thereafter. On issues that we were not able to resolve, it was escalated to be fixed/included in the next software update.

    Cons

    Being a JAVA application, it was a bit tricky to embed into our .NET application. There's supposed to be easy ways to integrate, but none of those worked with our custom authentication. Unless you are using the approved and documented authentication methods, integration will be quite a bit of work, including custom JAVA classes, etc.
