"These new books are for both novice and experienced Java developers who want to better understand the fundamentals of open source BI," said Steve Anglin, Editorial Director of Java at Apress who collaborated with JasperSoft on the new titles. "From building a simple report with interactive charts to embedding JasperReports into host applications, the guides cover a wide range of material and are written by the experts who created these significant reporting and BI technologies."

Known for their accurate, detailed insight into the industry's most widely used software, the JasperReports and iReport books join other successful titles in the Definitive series, including "The Definitive Guide to POJOs," "The Definitive Guide to Symfony," and "The Definitive Guide to MySQL 5."

"The Definitive Guide to JasperReports" covers such topics as delivering rich content onto the screen, to the printer, or into PDF, HTML, XLS, CSV and XML files and demonstrates how JasperReports can be used with a variety of Java applications to generate dynamic content. It also teaches developers how to embed JasperReports, handle complex reports, create integrated charting, and how to scale with high-performance report generation. The iReport guide discusses this intuitive and easy-to-use visual report builder/designer for JasperReports. It outlines the iReport and JasperReports installation process and walks through building a simple to use, report.

"We're pleased to partner with Apress on publishing these resources to make sure both casual developers and active power users have the information they need to deliver open source BI applications into production," said Danciu. "JasperForge represents the most active open source BI community, while commercial adoption of our software continues to our exceed expectations, proving there is a huge market need for these guides."
