Re: Reporting Engine on Wicket 1.3.4

2008-09-11 Thread Edvin Syse
We use Apache XmlGraphhics/FOP to create PDF successfully in our 
Wicket-applications. Some places I use an external XML-datasource and 
convert using XSLT, and other times I use Freemarker to generate the .fo 
directly. It's extremely fast, and the markup is easy to understand and 
easy to change/style.


Actually, in our Wicket-based CMS, the users can change templates so 
that the same article can output HTML, RSS/XML or even PDF through 
Apache FOP :)

Hi,

Actually there is no deed to have BIRT in a separated WAR: in our 
project

we
have included it as a (singleton) runtime which is part of the 
application.
We also have some kind of WEB interface to manage report 
parameters... We

found BIRT quite useful  for generating reports thought we had some
problems when migrating to new versions (sometimes things that were 
working
perfectly with one version got terrible unfixed when moving to the 
next).

With BIRT you get for free the ability to produce Excel, Word, etc...

In our project we went a bit further and built a machinery that 
allows to
combine BIRT (and non BIRT) PDF reports into books: BIRT reports are 
very
good in summarizing information but you are on your own when you 
have to
combine them... This tool allows you to build a tree like 
structure (a
book) where the nodes are BIRT reports. The  tool will help in 
collecting
all the bookmarks into a table of contents, generate combined 
bookmarks and

so on...

For simpler use cases I have used iText, JFreeChart, JExcelAPI, 
OpenCSV...


Best,

Ernesto

Hi,
We use BIRT as a report engine.
A freelancer has created the prototype BIRT project, and now we 
took over

it.
1. BIRT gives you all your needs.
2. I don't like it very much actually.
3. It is a different project than Wicket. (different WAR)
4. I plan to check how to integrate it to be in the same project / 
WAR of

our main web application.

Our integration:
We don't like the way BIRT implemented the parameters window so we 
wanted

to
make our own.
We found out that it would be much easier to develop it with Wicket 
than

to
customize it in BIRT.
So:
1. We have a page that has an IFrame (inline frame).
2. For each report (in the BIRT project) there's a Wicket's popup 
modal

window to select parameters.
 I am very happy with the module we built for that. It is very 
easy
  

to
   

create new parameters window.
3. When the user chooses the parameters and press OK, I set, using
AttributeModifier, the src attribute of the inline frame.
4. It is all Ajax, so the inline frame is updated with the src, and 
the

report is generated with the correct parameters..
This module is VERY new in our project. I still have some bugs, but 
this

is
how we integrated BIRT and Wicket.

A question to you all:
Has anyone worked with Wicket and BIRT?
(funny, but I planned to ask this anyway)

We use reportmill (I wouldn't pick that anymore), jasperreports (has
its own problems), crystal reports (haven't done anything serious yet)
and business objects (old version and nowadays XI). IMO there are lots
of problems with reporting tools: jasper is not sophisticated enough
in its design tools, crystal reports integrates like shit and
reportmill is expensive and not very well supported. Business objects
borks your architecture by introducing a duplication of your domain
model using its universe.

I've looked at birt 3 years ago, and it was bad at that time. Haven't
looked at it since.

Currently the best tool is jasperreports, when you don't want
customers define reports. Crystal reports seem like a better option if
you have customers that need to define reports, but providing CR with
programmatic data wasn't an option back in the day.

So the search for the holy reporting grail continues.

Thanks for the advice guys

At the moment I'm not too worried about a friendly report designer...
although I just know the users will ask for one and never use it ;)

So I guess a JasperReport integration will give the most mileage.

BIRT does seem interesting, although the integration seems somewhat hacky

 Currently the best tool is jasperreports, when you don't want
 customers define reports. Crystal reports seem like a better option if
 you have customers that need to define reports, but providing CR with
 programmatic data wasn't an option back in the day.

 So the search for the holy reporting grail continues.

Re: Reporting Engine on Wicket 1.3.4

2008-09-09 Thread reiern70

Hi,

Actually there is no deed to have BIRT in a separated WAR: in our project we
have included it as a (singleton) runtime which is part of the application.
We also have some kind of WEB interface to manage report parameters... We
found BIRT quite useful  for generating reports thought we had some
problems when migrating to new versions (sometimes things that were working
perfectly with one version got terrible unfixed when moving to the next).
With BIRT you get for free the ability to produce Excel, Word, etc... 

In our project we went a bit further and built a machinery that allows to
combine BIRT (and non BIRT) PDF reports into books: BIRT reports are very
good in summarizing information but you are on your own when you have to
combine them... This tool allows you to build a tree like structure (a
book) where the nodes are BIRT reports. The  tool will help in collecting
all the bookmarks into a table of contents, generate combined bookmarks and
so on...

For simpler use cases I have used iText, JFreeChart, JExcelAPI, OpenCSV... 

Best,

Ernesto

 Hi,
 We use BIRT as a report engine.
 A freelancer has created the prototype BIRT project, and now we took over
 it.
 1. BIRT gives you all your needs.
 2. I don't like it very much actually.
 3. It is a different project than Wicket. (different WAR)
 4. I plan to check how to integrate it to be in the same project / WAR of
 our main web application.
 
 Our integration:
 We don't like the way BIRT implemented the parameters window so we wanted
 to
 make our own.
 We found out that it would be much easier to develop it with Wicket than
 to
 customize it in BIRT.
 So:
 1. We have a page that has an IFrame (inline frame).
 2. For each report (in the BIRT project) there's a Wicket's popup modal
 window to select parameters.
  I am very happy with the module we built for that. It is very easy to
 create new parameters window.
 3. When the user chooses the parameters and press OK, I set, using
 AttributeModifier, the src attribute of the inline frame.
 4. It is all Ajax, so the inline frame is updated with the src, and the
 report is generated with the correct parameters..
 This module is VERY new in our project. I still have some bugs, but this
 is
 how we integrated BIRT and Wicket.
 
 A question to you all:
 Has anyone worked with Wicket and BIRT?
 (funny, but I planned to ask this anyway)

 We've looked at the JasperReports integration but the docs say it's not

You can mail directly to me if you feel it is out of Wicket's scope.

We use Jasper reports. We took what had been started and made some 
modifications and have it working in Wicket. It works well for us. David
