i am making windows application program in netbeans 7.1
in C# i have Microsoft Report viewer that i can use to view reports for my program users using Microsoft Reports that take data using SQL data set
how can i do this using java ? what is the java alternatives for Microsoft Report ?
i hear about jasper report for java i tried to use it but i can not
can any one tell me if it is good choice for use in my case or there is better easier one?
and please tell me how to use this type of report and how to fill it with data and show it to users
it s better to give me examples in code to understand it as i found lot of pages speak about it but i can not understand any of them as there is no examples with the explaination
