I'm still working on this, but I don't think I can install tomcat in this old underpowered customer's PC.

Nevertheless, thank you very much for the tip. I think it'll be useful not only for me, but for anyone doing reporting in web apps.

BTW, I think it could be useful to copy this thread to the Wiki or other more persistant organized place. Any ideas?

take a look at reportlab.  But after playing around a bit with
datavision, for most database reports it is going to be my application
of choice.  It has a very nice drag and drop report generator, and I
can serve the reports to my clients as either html or pdf with minimal
coding.  the only drawback is that it is a java app and does not
integrate with webware, so I am running if off my tomcat server, but
with jython and a little hacking you can write java servlets in a
pretty pythonic way so I'm happy.  I am currently working migrating an
access report (I can hear the groans already) over to datavision so
that i can deliver it as pdf's to my clients.  If you've not solved
this problem to your satisfaction i would urge you to give datavision a
try.  I can share my servlets with you if it would help get you started,
but the jsp and the servlet examples are pretty straight forward and is
what I used to write my test code.

Pagination is always going to be a problem with webpages, so far
browsers really don't make inserting page breaks an easy task.  If what
you want is a Crystal Reports like product why not use datavision
(http://sourceforge.net/projects/datavision) its free and works ok.

      Hi All,

 I have a small webware application in which I need to produce reports to be printed. Right now, html reports produce poor results (pagination is not constant).

 I bigger companies, we use Crystal Reports, but this is a small non-for-profit organization, so we can't afford commercial software.

 What are you guys using?

 I was checking out reportlab, but it seems a lot of work, and I couldn't find tables support.

 Best regards,

 Ed.
