I have done this before using a Report Listener. I put a rectangle in the group footer band (as small as a height as you can get). Then I used a "directive" that works along with my report listener. If the page that is finishing is odd, it fudges the height of the shape so it's taller than will fit on the page, resulting in the shape overflowing to the next page, which is even. I override the render method so that the shape doesn't actually print. Then, because the data group is set to start on a new page, it automatically goes to another page ... which is odd again .. to start the next data group.
