Best Practices With BIRT (presented by Actuate)
BIRT is a very flexible tool for developing reports, but with so much functionality at a developers disposal, what are some of the best practices to avoid pitfalls? When is it appropriate to use filters? How does a developer troubleshoot performance issues when they didn’t develop the report, or don’t even have access to the data source? What the best way to apply styles to a report?
This is an essential talk for any Eclipse developer looking to add analytics and reporting to their real world application. This talk focuses on best practices when building BIRT Reports. Topics will include:
• Optimization of data
• improving run time performance
• improving render time performance.
• how to troubleshoot performance issues, even if the developer does not have access to the data source
• Re-use of report elements
By the end of this talk, attendees will walk out and be able to apply the best practices to their BIRT development.
