Reporting with Eclipse BIRT

Eclipse BIRT (Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools) is a modular and expandable reporting tool. Using easy-to-operate Eclipse plugins based on WYSIWYG, it is possible to create reports. This is displayed by a Viewer Engine, which generates output in HTML, Excel, PowerPoint, PostScript and PDF format and can be integrated into your own applications. Using practical examples in report development, the seminar systematically introduces BIRT and showcases the possibilities of this technology. Not only will the basics be covered, but also aspects such as scripting, reutilization and integration.
