JasperStarter is a commandline launcher and batch compiler for JasperReports. It can run any JasperReport that needs a JDBC, CSV, or empty data source, use any database for which a JDBC driver is available, execute reports that need runtime parameters, print directly to the system default or a given printer, optionally show a printer dialog to choose a printer, optionally show a print preview, export to file in the PDF, RTF, .docx, .odt, and HTML formats, export multiple formats in one commanding call, print and export in one commanding call, and integrate in non-Java applications (for example PHP, Python) A binary executable is available for Windows. JapserStarter is able to prompt for report parameters. Any parameter whose class has a string constructor is accepted. Additionally, the following types are supported or have special handlers: date, image (see usage), and locale.
jZebra is a Java applet which allows you to print barcodes, receipts, and more from a Web page to your industry printer. It sends raw print commands and basic HTML and PDFs to your raw, PostScript, or LaserJet printer. It has been tested with Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Opera. It supports parallel, serial, USB, and network printers.
Reptool is a reporting/printing tool. It is made up of two components: libreptool, which manages source files that are the report's definition, and produces the report/printout; and greptool, which visually creates source files. It is based on glib, libxml, GTK+, cairo, pango, and libgda.
The Java Print Dialog Framework (JPDF) allows software developers to add a comprehensive printing capability to existing Java applications. The JPDF can preview and print Swing components: JTable, JTree, JTextPane, JTextArea, JEditorPane, and JPanel. Business reports and forms can be composed, viewed, and printed. A wide variety of page-setup, print-preview, and print dialogs are provided. The JPDF is designed to be integrated into Java Swing applications and applets.
LeadingReporter is an application for creating photo-based business documents, personalized illustrated client proposals, or even research and scientific reports. A rich choice of page templates helps to automatically layout text and images in your document. Documents can be shared as Web, print, or presentation files.
Holodeck10 is a Java-based application that runs on Linux. The purpose of the application is to allow the user to lay out images to be printed. It supports the basic function that includes orientation selection (LANDSCAPE or PORTRAIT), paper selection (NA_Letter or ISO_A4), and layout (1x1, 1x2, 2x2, 2x3, 4x5, 6x8, and Custom). A file chooser is used with a file filter to select image types of *.jpeg, *.jpg, *.gif, *.xpm, and *.png. A printerjob is used to send the page to the printer.
TFORMer is a versatile barcode label printing and reporting program. It provides a uniform solution for creating all types of documents like labels, forms, serial letters, lists, and reports. TFORMer is used on workstations, as a server-based output system or as a report generator SDK. Documents are created with the graphical layout editor TFORMer Designer. For printing purposes, data is entered manually or imported from databases or files. Templates for compliance labeling (e.g. AIAG, VDA, DHL, GS1, etc.) reduce design efforts significantly. For software developers, the output functionality is available with TFORMer Runtime. This cross-platform reporting SDK supports all types of barcodes, direct printing, PostScript, HTML, ZPL-II, and image and PDF creation. It integrates perfectly into client and server solutions. APIs are available for .NET, DLL, COM, and Java.
DrygerFax is a HylaFAX client for Windows which communicates through a special server running on Linux. It employs Samba and CUPS on the server to present a full-fleged network printer. Once a print job has been submitted, the server calls back to the client to ask for the fax information. Unlike some clients, this one does not need custom printer driver software to print, since the printer is presented as a generic Postscript printer. Unlike other clients, this one "phones home" to the user to get information needed to fax.
