I've been using Jasper Reports off and on for some time in an effort to
develop a demo web-based platform to take over when our 15-year old
Informix / 4GL reporting solution stops.
In an effort to do that, we have found that our user's use the data of
reports very differently, and that a degree of "interaction" is required
for each user to get the full and desired effect. I'm not suggested
Jasper become an OLAP tool, but I had a question / feature request.
One, albeit specific, feature that our user's love, but don't get in the
HTML generated (nor the PDF generated) reports that they do get in an
HTML application is the ability to resort on the fly.
For instance, we can create simple rows of data, no more complex than an
Excel spreadsheet, similar to:
Name Date Phone
My Name 06/01/2004 888.888.8888
2My Name 06/06/2004 888.888.8889
My Name3 06/08/2004 988.888.8888
However, they are sorted the way that I want them to be. Some user's
would prefer the date to be asc, or desc, or perhaps the name, one way
or the other.
Rather than writing HTML links which will trigger the re-running of the
report, is there any way to modify the HTML generation to provide a way
to sort by column headings?
Sorry for the long description for a "simple" problem.
