you can user JasperReports for report  generator. its an open source reporting engine. It is simple to use and more mature than any other open source reporting engine. JasperReports can generate reports in PDF,CSV,XLS,XML,HTML,RTF formats. Visit http://jasperreports.sourceforge.net/ for more details.

iReport is a front end (gui designer) for jasper.
I am using both of them and also Crystal
most of my employee prefer jasper  to crystal.

I used jasper report  in one of a project. It's good and easy to uses but has problem for lot of query result because it execute all of query result on first time and set them in session and when you navigate on result page it get them from session. This technicue have low performance. If you have resolve this problem this report generator  is good.

it depends on many parameters.
if u are using oracle as u database u can use oracle reports.it is a great tool with lots of APIs for java. but a bit difficult.

i have worked with jasper  and jfreereports they are both good.jfreereport is easier but still has not reached its first version.
jasper is widely used in java community.

if u will have lots of reports with different syles,templates and colors use an opensource.
but if u dont have lots of reports simply put them in an html  table and free urself from report  generator's complexities!!
