Jasper Reports Ultimate Guide now available for free

Hi guys,

many of you might be using Jasper Reports for designing your reports with Oracle APEX. The documentation provided by Jasper Soft had to be paid for.

I have just noticed that the Ultimate Guide is now available for free! So check it out: https://www.jaspersoft.com/store/jasperreports-ultimate-guide-documentation

It is not based on the latest version of Jasper Reports but nevertheless useful.

Cheers,
Dietmar.

Hi Apix,

Jasper Reports is available under a LGPLv3 license: http://jasperforge.org/uploads/publish/jasperreportswebsite/trunk/license.html

As far as I know you can use it without restriction in your company. The restrictions apply mostly when you embed the reporting functionality into your applications which you DISTRIBUTE to other clients.

iReport is available under GPL. Using the JasperServer possibly more restricted.

But beware, this is my personal view on these things and NOT ANY LEGAL ADVICE.

Cheers,
Dietmar.
