Subject Re: Interview with Si Chen from opentaps by Colin Charles

Please note: if JasperReports is a good solution (which it hasn't yet  
proven to be), then we can and actually do (I think) include reports  
written in Jasper in OFBiz.

The only thing we can't do is distribute the JasperReports jar files.  
That means the installation process for OFBiz is slightly more  
complicated, but it's not that big of a deal.
