Jasper Server when used in conjunction with Jasper iReport allows you to extract valuable insights from the systems you use to run your business. In this brief tutorial we’ll examine how to create a simple report using iReport. This exercise presumes that you’ve already completed this prior tutorial on how to expose the MySQL database of a SugarCRM JumpBox. Once you’ve created a report with the client-side tool (iReport) you load the JRXML file generated by iReport into the Repository on the JumpBox for Jasper Server in order to serve it to users.
