The main goal of this project is to deliver to programmers and customers a
convenient solution for the report generating with the definite data obtained
from different sources (database, text file, xml file). The flexible interface
is a distinctive feature of this product. It gives a possibility to use this
Report Engine as an independent product to generate the report in different views
or to integrate it into any program product using the granted common program
interface (public API), to tune it to oneís own needs and also to extend the
Report generating by means of Report Engine is based on xml/xsl
This part of Report Engine releases the view Ė appearance report marking.
The own marking format is done in the context of this part of the product
realization based on xml with the fixed number of the view elements and marking
of the output reports.
This part of Report Engine operates in the following way: input view.xml
is transformed into xsl to process the obtained data (data.xml) by the processing
means with the corresponding xsl file. For transformation in html we get the result
already at this stage.
This part deals with receiving of a userís data from different sources and preparing of the data for the final
report. The data receiving module work is based on the userís query.xml file.
The adapters architecture necessary to connect to different data sources is made in the context of this
module realization. Now we have released an adapter to connect to the database based on jdbc driver indicated by the user.
Operating of this part of Report Engine results in structured data for the report in data.xml format.
The data set is transformed into data.xml format for the subsequent xsl transformation based on view.xml
Primary GUI is implemented for reports forming by users on their own files. ReportFactory class is called
out from GUI with delivery of the input data and the report generating starts. There is a possibility to
attach the userís generator classes to get different output formats. The flexible configuration system allows
to tune practically all the parameters used during generating. It is also possible to launch this application
from the command line.
Using of Report Engine as a library a programmer both gets an access to high level classes (ReportFactory) and
has got a possibility to redefine practically all the classes used during the report generating.
The main goal of this software is to provide the user with a useful determination of the structure visual composition
and the report view. This application is a web application and it is available via a usual web browser. It allows both
to create and export view.xml and query.xml for future use in Report Engine and to realize the complete cycle of the
report creating and generating. It also allows to keep and edit the reports saved before.
This module is assigned for visual final report view generating. It allows to format the appearance
of the final report and to determine in it the layout of static and dynamic elements.
The static elements allow to add html elements to the report. The dynamic tables and charts contain the query data.
This module allows to create xml file with the selected data source queries. It represents a query
generator to the data source. Allows to select and check the data source connection and sets the query rules for
the required data.
