  • reporting engine with a ROO app

    Hello,

    Can any one suggest a reporting engine to use, which is light weight (can later be adapted in the form of an addon to ROO)

    I am looking into Jasper Reports and BIRT but they seem quite heavy.

    What do you mean by lightweight? BIRT/Jasper are 'well factored' which usually also means you need to do a bunch of legwork to get simple things done 'properly'. BIRT is quick enough to use if you are using eclipse designer, not sure about directly using its java objects though.

      Also, there's an Eclipse plug-in for Jasper that gives you a basic WYSIWYG report painter.
      You can generate reports as jsp's very easily with this.

        Cheers, I like the Jasper java model, but haven't used JR for years. Good to know it's got some ui now.

          I have created an addon for Roo called Jasperoo.
          There is an introduction on my blog at: http://my.digitalface.ca/2011/03/jas...-jasperoo.html

          The project is hosted on Google Code at: jasperoo.digitalface.ca.

          Hope that helps.
