The Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools (BIRT) project is part of the Eclipse Framework that provides infrastructure and tools to design, develop, and deploy report content to your Java/J2EE application.
This presentation will show you how to add additional functionality to your BIRT reports in order to enable end-users to interact with the data and even build their own reports. Topics covered include:
· Adding Flash to BIRT Reports for highly interactive visualizations of data in BIRT reports.
· BIRT Interactive Viewer. With BIRT Interactive Viewer end users can change BIRT report formatting; hide, add or move data; create charts, sort data and apply functions to data.
· BIRT Studio. BIRT Studio is a web-based report development tool for business users to create BIRT – based business intelligence reports using the reusable report components created by any of BIRT Designers. It is an AJAX-based based business intelligence tool accessed from a web browser with no client software to install for end users to create charts and graphs; add, rearrange, reformat, show and hide data; and change report, row, column and cell formatting to create their own BIRT report.
