The best Reporting Tool for Java Developers

Sometimes the most difficult part to create custom reports using Jaspersoft Studio, is actually to write the query that will fetch the data. After that, building the report is mainly drag-n-drop, write some Java code, setup properties and parameters, and make your report ready.

Pros

This software is one of the best choices to create reports if you are a Java developer. All you need to know about is Java and SQL for the queries. It integrates with many databases, and I personally have used it with PostgreSQL and it works well. The reports you create from scratch are fully customizable, and can include the elements you need: labels, tables, images, ... I like a lot the subreport element, as it allows to create even more complex / nested reports, in which you usually follow a master-detail model. In addition, you can use the Java libraries to integrate Jasper reports into your Java application, either Desktop or Web, this will enable

Cons

Some features or properties are not too intuitive, which is understandable if we think this is a tool for developers. Even though, it would be nice to have a more intuitive GUI.

Good reporting software for smal and medium company.

Good for reporting in real-time because it has helped us quite a lot in decision making. I am able to design and deploy reports easily without requesting for support.

Pros

The ability to integrate with different databases and the ease with which I can easily connect makes it great for me using the software. It can also handle huge database record simultaneously.

Cons

The manual designing is a little difficult when you are trying to create different fields and more easier when you can use the XML. If you are not a programmer, it will take you some time to use the XML. Additionally, you need to deal with the unused columns or rows when you export your report to excel.

Reasons for choosing TIBCO Jaspersoft

Initially we had it free and was able to test and found it fit for purpose. Also, the pricing was within our budget.

TIBCO Jaspersoft Review

I have used it for the design of dashboards and reports of various information sources, in which histograms had to be shown as well as tables with styles based on the value that is being shown. In addition, I have also used it to schedule the sending of PDF reports to several clients.

Pros

To make reports with relational data sources it is very versatile and useful. It has a series of components that allow you to make dashboards or reports in a simple way. Depending on the complexity of the query that is needed, it gives you several options to be able to generate it without using the SQL language.

Cons

It does not have native tools for connecting to non-relational data sources, such as APIs or NoSQL databases. Depending on the graph or table, the format of it can be very complicated. Date filters using reserved terms is not intuitive at all, and it is also very limited, since it only allows you to filter by day, weeks or months.

Reasons for choosing TIBCO Jaspersoft

For the price in addition to having a simpler and faster way of implementation and maintenance.

Business Intelligence Tool that's neither Intuitive or Intelligent

If you need a bare bones BI tool, this will work. On a rare occasion I am able to create a report that is visually appealing, works on the server, and exports well. It takes way more work and time to produce a professional grade deliverable in Jaspersoft than it does in any other BI tool I have used.

Pros

This software is very customizable in terms of the output formats. Scheduled report delivery is very easy to accomplish on their reporting server. It also has the ability to create HTML 5 charts.

Cons

The design interface for report creation is atrocious. Very clunky, not intuitive, and dated especially when compared to other tools available (MS Power BI, Tableau, etc.). It is maddeningly picky when it comes to formatting. Reports will function well on in Jaspersoft and not function on a server. The error output is cryptic and requires decoding. Exported reports will look excellent in one format and awful in another. Ineffective documentation from Tibco makes learning the software a challenge if you are not an explorer. Drillable datasets are impossible.

Reasons for choosing TIBCO Jaspersoft

It is an opensource product.

TIBCO Jaspersoft Review

It's been mixed. Sometimes the built in functions do not work with the application I am publishing the report in. Learning java has been frustrating,

Pros

It is a pixel perfect report designing tool. It is very easy to design a descriptive report. I like the spreadsheet page layout.

Cons

The learning curve is steep. It's platform is java based which can take a non expert a longtime to figure out. Not a lot of chart options.
