If you want to build the tool from the source code or write a plug-in, you will also need NetBeans IDE and the NetBeans platform As for hardware, like all Java programs, ireport consumes a lot of RAM, so it is necessary to have at least MB of memory available as well as about 50 MB of free disk space.

If you don t have one, you will need to create an account at in order to access the repository. In order to compile the project and run ireport, you need NetBeans IDE and the platform or starting from ireport 3.

If you are using NetBeans 6. The file to download is netbeans all-in-one. Download ireport-x. Please note that NetBeans IDE is the development environment, while NetBeans is the version of the platform which can be considered something like an external library or dependency; it has very little to do with the IDE.
