[ANN/OT] xreporter 1.0 release - XML/XSLT-based database reporting
Hi all, we just released the 1.0 version of xReporter, our open source, XML-based Apache Avalon/Cocoon-based database reporting framework, available from http://xreporter.cocoondev.org/ xReporter consists of 2 main components: * an Avalon Phoenix-based query server, which is configured through XML-based report definitions, and is accessible across an XML/HTTP interface * a Cocoon front-end generating configurable HTML, PDF, Excel and CSV renditions of your database reports, thanks to the wonders of FOP, POI and some custom Cocoon drudgery Architectural diagram: > http://xreporter.cocoondev.org/en/my-images/architecture.png < xReporter allows you to quickly set up a database reporting website by editing a couple of XML configuration files. Most compelling features: - multiple datasources & report definitions - user/role-based report authorization, container-based authentication - column filtering & sorting, query by example - no programming required to define complex, multistep database reports - optionally using temporary tables - expression language & field validation - possibility to access non-SQL, 'Web Services' datasources - fully customizable look & feel using CSS and XSLT - flow control using XML and a ReST HTTP interface xReporter is released under an Apache-style license, and we welcome contributions and patches as we try to grow this into a community-owned project. Currently, there is anonymous read-only cvs access and a downloadable tarball. There's a limited, live demo available on the project website, too. We would like to sincerely thank the Apache Avalon & Cocoon community for the creation of some wonderful toys to play with. </Steven> -- Steven Noels http://outerthought.org/ Outerthought - Open Source, Java & XML Competence Support Center Read my weblog at http://blogs.cocoondev.org/stevenn/ stevenn at outerthought.org stevenn at apache.org
