This Tutorial is intended to provide an overview of the Logi JReport solution, embedded reporting concepts, and detailed step-by-step lessons on using Logi JReport. To allow for lessons to be completed in a reasonable time frame, not all of the features of Logi JReport are covered.
This Tutorial requires that both Logi JReport Server and Logi JReport Designer are installed on a Windows machine and therefore file names and paths, and screenshots in this guide are based on the Windows operating system. However Logi JReport can run on multiple platforms. To install Logi JReport Server, follow the installation instructions in the Logi JReport Server User's Guide; to install Logi JReport Designer, select here.
