Subreports Example Zip

There’s been some questions floating through the Pentahoshpere (I think I’m the first person to use that word, btw) about how to use Subreports. I think there’s a good description at the wiki that covers the basics, but I don’t think there’s a good working example that is shipping with Pentaho open source yet.

I don’t really have time to delve into all of it so in the spirit of “early and often” I’ll just post the zip file with a working example (on 1.6 GA Designer and Server).

Here tis:

    Are you aware of any examples that have a master report that holds a header, one or many subreports(with their own header, ie. column headings), and a master report footer(ie a report disclaimer of some sort). Am having issues, for example with getting the master’s footer appearing at the bottom of all pages, not just the last page.
    thanks

    I’m using the pentaho classic engine (JFreeReport) to show reports from java.
    I can run this example at the Report Designer, but how i can do it from java?.

    Thanks, for your attention

    i am beginning the step reporting. i found the example report “sales by productline” is very well. for example the top report is about “sales by territory”, and then we can choice another report by clic “product lines” or “produit” and so on. can you give an example in this sujet?

    thanks
