Open source, Eclipse-based reporting system that integrates with your application to produce reports for both web and PDF.
BIRT has two main components: a report designer based on Eclipse, and a runtime component that you can add to your app server. It also offers a charting engine that lets you add charts to your own application.
BIRT reports consist of four main parts:
- Data: Databases, web services, Java objects all can supply data to your BIRT report. Support for JDBC is provided, as well as support for using code to get at other sources of data. A single report can include data from any number of data sources.
- Data transforms: Reports present data sorted, summarized, filtered and grouped to fit the user's needs. BIRT allows operations such as grouping on sums, percentages of overall totals and more.
- Business logic: Many reports require business-specific logic to convert raw data into information useful for the user. If the logic is just for the report, you can script it using BIRT's JavaScript support. If your application already contains the logic, you can call into your existing Java code.
- Presentation: Once the data is ready, you have a range of options for presenting it to the user: tables/lists, charts, crosstabs, letters & documents, compound reports. A single data set can appear in multiple ways, and a single report can present data from multiple data sets.
