This presentation introduces and explores BIRT, the Eclipse Foundation open
source Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools (BIRT) project. BIRT is a
powerful report development and deployment toolset that allows Java developers
to quickly and easily incorporate reporting into applications without the need
for time-consuming custom code. Using BIRT, developers design reports based on
a wide variety of data sources, including SQL, XML and Java objects, and
tightly integrate those reports into their applications using a rich set of
APIs. Reports can range in functionality from the simple to the complex, and
are all designed visually using a web-page design metaphor.
This session provides an opportunity to understand more about BIRT and
might benefit your applications.
