Thanks, Rene!

I actually just found that after sending my question.  Somehow I missed
it earlier.  We are definitely going to take a look at Jasper and the

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.
