Hello Everyone,

I have a requirement from a customer who wants to use Pentaho to generate and email reports in PDF formats to their customers and partners.

This report is a multi page report. Each page of the report has approximately 75% static content and 25% of the content is to be fetched from database.

The report will have approximately 25 pages. (with report front page, TOC, page header, footer). Each page has a well defined layout and static content. The layout and static content remains the same. The dynamic data is to be fetched and placed only in certain portions of the report. The overall structure of the report will remain same.

The customer wants some charts to be inserted in some pages. These charts are of horizontal bar charts.

Do you think we should attempt to do this on Pentaho (will it be a right tool for the requirement stated above? )
