Flat File Reporting allows you to use fixed width files as a data source in IReport designer and Jasper Reports. It uses a record description (which can be XML, Cobol, or RecordEditor Record Layouts) to describe the file format. You can design reports via IReports wizards or by draging and dropping fields onto the report. It can also be used for reports for the RecordEditor and JRecord Projects.
PHPJasperXML is a class that allows native PHP code to read Jasper report files and generate PDFs on the fly. The project began due to a need to develop Web reports in PHP easily. The output format is PDF, because it is platform-independent and printer-friendly. It allows PHP programmers to design reports with Java iReport and run them from PHP. It is completely different from php-java bridge, as the code is run completely from PHP. A wrapper will convert report element from JRXML and pass them to the FPDF class. The project is still in an alpha state, and much of the functionality is not ready. However, it already can create many reports.
