    Request: API for Reporting


      Is there a general API in java that allows you to create reports (like bar charts) ? I am thinking of an architecture like JMS and JNDI where you can specify a provider through a URL, get a connection through a connection factory and then create reports through such a connection.

      There are Java APIs out for reporting (e.g. from Crystal Reports or some open source projects are sourceforge.net), but there is no general API which I can use to plug-in any kind of report provider.

      This API could be an extension of the Resource Adapter API defining a Common Client Interface for Reporting !?
