Report Generator or Print Preview
I am working on an application with many arrays and the output needs to be in differnt formats on a page. That is I will have tables, graphics and regular lines of text.
It would be nice to view the information and than have the ability to print it out. Someone suggested that I look into one of Java's report generators. I thought that I would need only a print preview tool.
I need help deciding if I need a Report Generator or a Print Preview tool. Also, any suggestion for a specific tool (with good examples) would be greatly appreciated.
print preview only shows you what will be printed.. if youre not using a report tool ,but merely printing a garbled mess.. then the print preview will show a garbled mess
i.e., get a reports tool if you want to make reports..
cjard - Thanks. Do you know if a report generator will create an output with tables and text lines populated from arrays?
I need to create:

Also, do you know of an easy Report Writer thats not too expensive?
