You may have heard of BIRT, the Eclipse Foundation Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools project, but are wondering what it is an how it might help you. This session introduces you to BIRT, the powerful open source report development and deployment technology, and explores what its capabilities are.

The session looks at how BIRT enables you to quickly and easily incorporate world-class reporting into your applications without the need for time-consuming custom code, and how developers can use a visual design environment to create reports based on a wide variety of data sources, including SQL, XML, Web Services and Java objects. Reports can range in functionality from simple reports created with a drag-and-drop experience, to complex reports with full programmatic control - all designed visually using a web-page design metaphor.

This session provides a great introduction to the technology and an opportunity to understand more about BIRT and how it might benefit your applications.
