Vanilla v3 (post 7 on 10) – FreeWebReport

Dear Readers,

With Vanilla v3, we provide power users with an enhanced version of FreeWebReport, that support – in short – muti datasource (Metadata document), multi data set (dataset beeing link or not, based on context),  a new set of layout (that is close from what is available in FreeDashboard) and additional graph & calculation formula.

With those new features, FreeWebReport leverage the Birt engine & Birt Xml definition used to produce the report (Birt is also based on a multi datasource/dataset, and FwReport set of functions is Birt alike). In addition, every report created by FreeWebReport can be open by a Birt java studio (for additional layout arrangement, such as pixel perfect column definition)

My personal opinion is that the last thing missing to FreeWebReport is a real Wysiwyg Web interface that could be provided in parallel to the easy-to-use Wizard, along with support of additional type of graphs … that’s why we will continue to provide new release of the module …

New layout management : basic report definition

  2. Hi,
    A beta version will be soon available within 2 or 3 weeks.
    I have no idea what Cognos provides as disconnected features, so I can’t tell you how we compare,
