Pros: It's very flexible and allows for more customization than most similar tools. We were able to create a wide variety of reporting and analytics layouts with relative ease.
Cons: There is a fairly steep learning curve involved with respect to learning how to develop even basic reports. Overall, their documentation isn't great and there are very limited code examples and walkthroughs. You also need to have at least a basic understanding of databases and object-oriented programming languages in order to effectively use the software.
Overall: Jasper helped us to limit the use of Java developers by allowing us to shift report creation to Database Developers. This also helped us to reduce development costs.
