|Jinfonet’s highly regarded Java based reporting solution, JReport, is rolling out a new edition this summer. The culmination of over a decade of experience in Business Intelligence Reporting, JReport 10 is the cutting edge in scalable and responsive reporting. Building upon its existing JavaEE framework, JReport continues to provide real-time, highly actionable reports that seamlessly embed in your application. This is the first installment in a two-part pre launch series breaking down the exciting and innovative components of the next JReport.
JReport’s new Interactive Reporting Engine (IRE) provides unique scalability and performance. The advanced architecture splits engine responsibility, separating the data intensive workloads from interactive client-side tasks such as report layout. Interactive reporting actions like filtering and sorting can now be handled locally, minimizing unnecessary server-client traffic and increasing responsiveness.
Offloading workload to client browsers unencumbers the server, allowing JReport Server to scale up both in the number of end-users and in complexity and workload of reports. JReport’s IRE will scale up alongside your growing business, consistently providing responsive Reports to your users.
The Interactive Reporting Engine has enabled JReport to provide Rich Internet Reporting. This streamlined style of web reporting is delivered through Rich Internet Applications (RIA’s) and is available in both AJAX and Flash versions. RIA’s work on the client-side, leveraging previously underutilized CPU’s and reducing response time. Utilizing RIA technology, JReport 10 brings interactive reporting to the next level.
In addition, JReport provides a new metadata layer, Business View (BV). BV enables the RIA environment to easily access company data resources for quick, interactive usage. This layer makes client-side web reporting at run time possible, increasing the level and speed of report interaction.
