Jasper Reports

I've been tinkering with plugins, and have integrated Jasper Reports into a simple Moneydance plugin, all it does currently is retrieve a list of transactions for a particular account, stuff them into a 'ReportTransaction' plain javabean, pass a collection of these into JasperReports where the report is generated and output to PDF.

However, the reporting possibilities available with using Jasper Reports could be something very useful to many people, providing the 2009 version of Moneydance doesn't blow us away with it's extensive reports ;-)

I'm not likely to continue the development of this past my need for a particular report, but I'm more than willing to share what I've done so that other people can pick it up and run with it.

If anybody's interested in seeing this, then please let me know.

    Hello Roy,

    have you got your extension working?
    Maybe you still want to share your effort with us?

    I will document it, and also include a sample app with a simple report

    However, it could be a few weeks off, as I'm about to go on holiday.

    Good evening Roy,

    Did this thread die in the wind ?

    I am still very interested and somewhat intrigued!

    Life has been throwing me curved balls ... I still intend to document
    what I've done so others can follow it, and extend it, but I'm
    struggling to find the time to do it at the moment.
