Creation of KPIs and dashboards with animated, synchronized visualizations are also simplified with an intuitive drag and drop process.
New JReport Designer
JReport Designer features a new user interface that expands Quick Start, making it more intuitive for developers to connect to data sources, configure data models, and create reports and visualizations. Built-in templates are now extendable and customizable to work with any new data source. Contextual hints assist developer workflows. Visualization properties are easily adjustable through a searchable inspector. The collection of new enhancements results in a much-improved user experience.

What’s New in JReport 14.5?
JReport 14.5 is an exciting release that streamlines the data visualization experience. This newest release is full of usability and functionality enhancements geared for empowering developers and business users in the quick creation and embedding of reports and dashboards.
Dashboards and Visualization Anywhere
With responsive JReport, business users on the go can work with dashboards, reports and charts on any device anywhere, from PC to mobile. The same design of your visualization will automatically scale and fold as needed, no programming is required. Information presented will always be legible and the layout will perfectly adapt to best utilize the available display screen. With JReport embedded analytics, your application will naturally be tablet and smart phone optimized.
Crosstabs are frequently used to analyze aggregate information in the row versus column fashion, optionally with hierarchical structure. However, the business world sometimes requires analyses beyond this basic format. JReport now supports a unique compound crosstab that allows users to put multiple, compound crosstabs together in a very flexible structure. Every group of columns and rows can have its own summaries. This makes far more sophisticated crosstab analysis possible.
It is important for different parts of a visualization to be fully consistent. If you drill down, filter or sort on any data, you’ll want this to be reflected in all or a certain set of components on the same dashboard. JReport now lets you easily specify the synchronization settings across components with just a few clicks.
Integration and Performance
When viewing a large report that takes a long time to run, JReport can pipeline the result set so that the first few pages are available while the rest are being processed in the background. Any partial summary will be flagged and automatically refreshed while remaining data comes in until the report is completed.
