what are the tool available to Create Report 

  
I am trying to understand how to create report in OutSystems.
I saw some thread discussing to use Crystal Report and some using Jasper Report.
Does OutSystems has report tool out of the box? or we need to use external tool like Crystal Report.

Cheers,
Setiaman
Hi Setiaman,
As per my experience i have not seen any out of the box report tool available here . You can create customize webscreen to create  a repport and there are many componenet availble for generating excel\pdf anc charts for your reports.

I know only two ways to get something that looks like a report from Outsystem and I've only 4 months of practice .
I can't help you if you what to use Crystal Report or Jasper Report.

I did some reports using, free tools. The examples above that I've found here in Forge.

the first one is to generate a PDF file

the second one is to generate from one page another page that you can print it using control P

 Thank You Giocastro,
You are very resourceful. :)
Looks like Outsystems magic is only in UI. But that will help a lot already for lazy developer like me.

Don't forget to also take a look at Jasper Reports for comparison, it's a pretty good tool and free if you only use the reporting and not the BI portion (community edition) and you can talk to it using webservices.
