Jasper Reports Alternative


Jasper Reports Alternative
I need to determine the Crystal Reports version that is an equivalent to Jasper Reports. 
We need to implement a very scaled down reporting component of an existing j2EE application.  This component is to produce  .pdf reports on the screen that are available for printing.   These are not statistical reports and are infact part of the workflow contained within the application.  We address similar requirements in another application with Jasper reports but have been told to use Crystal for this application.
Might someone be able to lend some light on which version would be most applicable?
And, yes, that's correct, I'm not a developer.
Go for the latest Crystal Reports 2008.
