I am not a Java man.

I had looked onto this (Pentaho, Mondrian, Jasper, BIRT)

I gave up, since I had not the necessary background on Java technology
to put it all togheter and make it work. I did managed to run a special
"quick-start" version, but don't tried the standard version. I think I
would make it run, but I don't have the necessary time to spent on it.

If anyone has success cases about this I'd like to know.

see you !
