Talk by Mica Block from Actuate at Eclipse Summit Europe 2009.
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.
