JapserServer Evaluation - Part 2

It's been almost a month now since I have been evaluating JasperServer. And it has been quite hard to evaluate the software without a proper documentation. Fortunately, I was able to convince my boss to buy the books Definite Guide to iReport, Definite Guide to JasperReport and JasperServer Ultimate Guide.

What I found interesting in all this experience is that just like any open software, it is connected to a lot of different applications. I had to study Tomcat and Ant in a thorough manner to get through JasperServer. In the end, I'm actually quite happy that I had to go through this experience.

Anyway, I am now quite comfortable with JasperServer. I am now able to create reports on the fly and I'm able to understand what it is now doing in a more in-depth manner. In fact, I will be giving a demo to our boss sometime soon and who knows we might use JasperServer in our company.
