How to configure iReport, jasperreports with web start java application to make reports available at clients end.

Dear Expert,

can we configure iReport with java web start application so that client at remote end can access report from application and run the same to get desired output. Please give your expert suggestion to achieve the same. I have already downloaded iReport-5.6.0-windows-installer.exe, jasperreports-server-cp-5.6.0-windows-x86-installer.exe and jasperreports-server-cp-5.6.0-bin.exe. I am confused which to install as my Windows OS is 32 Bit. I am using MySQL 5.6.0 Database for application. Please give your valuable suggestion.

Thanks & Regards

iReport is a GUI tool to develop your reports which helps you to check how your jasper report (.jrxml) look like once generated. Your report may contain some complex queries, some business functions that i believe you dont want to expose to your client. If you provide iReport, just to run the report, you may expose many other things also.

Second thing, iReport is commercial, so you may need to pay for it's usage at different end. However I am not sure how they charge you on what basis.

As per my suggestion, jut to execute/run the report at client end, 1. prepare a report using iReport in your development environment, 2. Identify a way to run the report at client end (ie. a java program, or a jsp or an applet and other alternates) and 3. Deploy it. You will not need to install iReport at client end.

Hope this helps.
