PDF Document Switching from Apache FOP to Jasper

In the upcoming version of opentaps Open Source ERP + CRM, we have migrated the order, invoice, and quote PDF documents from Apache FOP to JasperReports. This will allow you to modify the layout using iReport:

edit-order-pdf-ireport

Instead of editing the xsl:fo XML documents required by Apache FOP:

edit-order-pdf-xslfo

We have a tutorial on using JasperReports and a tutorial on iReport, although, to be honest, I’ve made quite a few changes to my reports without having to read it.

If you already have XSL:FO documents, we plan to continue supporting those as well.

Hello, World

Four years ago, we set out to make open source enterprise software a reality. Today, opentaps Open Source ERP + CRM has realized those early hopes. Now we’re preparing for the next step of the journey, and it was also time for a new website.

I didn’t want a slick new site full of buzzwords and logos. What I we wanted was an ongoing dialog with you. About us. About the open source software that we develop. And finally, about what it’s like to be an open source software company. That’s why we’ve set it up as an ongoing blog. I hope you’ll check back regularly or use the RSS feed to stay in touch.
