Subject Re: [S2] Design Advice Needed
Date Thu, 02 Aug 2007 12:07:29 GMT
You should definitely have a look into the struts2-jasperreports-plugin
- both for checking out how to write own results and evaluating if you
might want to use jasper over FOP, since full s2 result support is
already available for jasper.

The plugin is part of the struts2 source distribution.

Rene
