The suite consists of Report Designer, Reporting Engine and Reporting SDK. The Report Designer is a desktop reporting tool that provides a visual design environment to easily create sophisticated and rich reports. The Reporting Engine is an embeddable JAVA reporting library that is used by the report designer to generate reports. The library can be used in both in server-side and client side scenarios. Originally known as JFreeReport, it was designed to follow the approach of banded reporting with absolutely positioned elements. The Reporting Software Developers Kit (SDK) is a packaging of the Classic Engine, documentation and all of the supporting libraries required to embed the Pentaho Reporting Engine into your application.

Simple reports can be built by business users and more sophisticated reports would be built by a more tech-savvy person who can understand security rules, use the scheduler, setup bursting rules, create delivery options, etc. Pentaho provides multiple, integrated options for report design, including the Pentaho Report Design Wizard, which walks a user through a serious of steps to create a report. Pentaho also provides the Pentaho Report Designer, which provides a complete drag-and-drop report design environment to create simple or sophisticated reports.
