Aspose.Words for JasperReports
Aspose.Words for JasperReports is the only known solution on the market that makes possible exporting reports from JasperReports and JasperServer to Microsoft Word document (DOC), Office Open XML (OOXML, DOCX), Rich Text Format (RTF), OpenDocument Text (ODT), Web page (HTML) and plain text (TXT) formats.
JasperReports and JasperServer do not have built-in abilities to export reports as Microsoft Word documents (apart from the RTF format that uses positioned items), but using Aspose.Words for JasperReports, you will get access to the following additional export formats:
- DOC – Word document
- DOCX – Office Open XML (OOXML) document
- RTF – Rich Text Format
- ODT – OpenDocument Text
- HTML – Web page
- TXT – Plain text
Easy and Lightweight Deployment
Aspose.Words for JasperReports is written purely in Java and is provided as a single JAR file that can easily be deployed on the machines running JasperReports or JasperServer. To install Aspose.Words for JasperReports, simply copy the JAR file to a correct folder. To integrate with JasperServer you will also need to edit a JasperServer configuration file.
High Fidelity to Report Design
Aspose.Words for JasperReports exports reports as Microsoft Word documents in such a way that they look identical to reports exported by the built-in exporters of JasperReports. All report features are converted with the highest degree of precision to Microsoft Word documents.
Aspose.Words for JasperReports exports flow layout documents. This means they consist of “normal” paragraphs, tables and images that are easy to further edit in Microsoft Word, if necessary. The built in JasperReports RTF exporter produces documents consisting of positioned text frames and that makes further editing hard.
