One Minute Bottom Line

JasperReports 3.6 cookbook is really a practical book for professionals. The entire book is a comprehensive collection of report recipes taught in step-by-step approach. The book uses real world problems to demonstrate pagination, graphs/charts, multi-page reports with cover, summary reports, reporst with table of contents, and performing complex mathematical calculations. I will recommend this book to professionals who need to learn tricky report designing using JasperReports and iReport.

Review

JasperReports 3.6 cookbook is really a practical book for professionals. As the book name suggests, it's a collection of recipes. Book content is arranged in a very natural way starting with the easiest use cases and ending with the most complex use cases. The chapter arrangement is mapped to report structure i.e. starting with details of title/header, then comes the body, and finally the footer. The book also covers complex designing features that I found very interesting like handling multiple subreports in a main report, creating a summary report of many subreports, creating and using report templates, creating a table of contents for a large report with easy linking to the target part of a report, demonstrating complex pagination, graphs/charts, and performing complex mathematical calculations. I will recommend this book to professionals who want to learn tricky report designing in step-by-step manner with snapshots.
