Overall Satisfaction with JReport

JReport is embedded in our platform and solves the need for business reporting through our software. It is easy to customize and allows for seamless integration. We have been using it to offer OOTB reports and build custom reports. We also use clustering of JReport servers for providing a high availability solution to our customers.
  • Creates powerful reports and charts
  • Highly customizable and can fit multiple needs
  • Distributed Architecture offers higher reliability and avoids single point of failure
  • Designing UI for a new report can be time consuming
  • Building an entirely new report requires a fully trained resource with knowledge of using the Designer tool
  • Upgrades can be complex
JReport can connect to various data sources for pulling information
JReport comes built in with collaboration capabilities. With role management and user management options, schedules can be managed across diverse group of users and schedules can be delivered to many stakeholders
JReport is well suited for enterprise use. It makes creating and managing schedules easy. Each machine in the cluster is capable of functioning in isolation. Load sharing and load balancing options available OOTB are diverse for various types of business needs. The best feature is its ability to detect that a schedule did not complete due to a crash or any other reason and ensure completion through parallel nodes.

JReport is not well suited for a small business.
