- To print the value of a field in the report, drag a field object from the report inspector to the design view. For example, drag a field into the detail band, a section of the report that is printed for each record/row in the query results. The title and the summary bands are printed just once in each report, while the page header and footer are printed once at the top and bottom of each page, respectively.
- It is important that the textfields are all placed within the detail band.

The report execution is performed by the JasperReports library, so you have to include all the required jars in your application. Which jars? If you do not have a problem shipping a lot of jars, you can include all the jars provided in JasperReports Library. However JasperReports includes many jars that you may not need as well.
