As mentioned, a report
design represents a template that will be used by the JasperReports engine
to deliver dynamic content to the printer, to the screen or to the Web.
Data stored in the database is organized according to the report design to
obtain ready to print, page oriented documents.
The report designs are
defined in XML files and must have a special structure. This structure is
declared in a DTD file supplied with the JasperReports engine. The XML
files are then compiled, in order to use them in report filling
To create a simple report
design, we have to edit an XML file with the following structure:
PUBLIC "-//JasperReports//DTD Report Design//EN"
<jasperReport name="name_of_the_report" ... >
