Java Tools In The BI Space: Jinfonet JReport 10.1

Java reporting tools company Jinfonet Software has this week attempted to stoke up developer interest in its new JReport 10.1 tool, which is said to enable users to visualise business intelligence data with a high-performance reporting server and new visualisation features.

Jinfonet claims that JReport 10.1 provides visualisation features that provide what it describes as "actionable information" for both developers and other end enterprise users.

As part of our its visualisation rollout, JReport 10.1 is now built with a function called JDashboard, a mashup of components that the company says allows end users to build custom dashboards according to their needs.

The product itself has support for over 40 chart types that zoom, scroll and filter -- and end users can interact with data by instantly changing chart types and styles.

“JReport 10.1 now supports both AJAX and Flash components, giving developers the ability to deploy in either format to provide end users more options to interact with the on-page reports,” said Dr. Bing Yao, president and CEO of Jinfonet Software. “The AJAX support allows equally high functionality and reporting ability to extend to all platforms that do not presently support Flash.”

According to Jinfonet's official press statement, "JReport 10.1 continues to enhance performance and scalability with a new fully distributed cluster server. The new architecture will be able to tolerate configurable N-simultaneous failures."

The system is being promoted as "highly scalable" with the ability to dynamically add or repair nodes, allowing it to process any number of reports or support any number of users. A new data cache function permits reports to minimize data access and share information, thereby (in theory) improving overall performance and report time. In addition, Jinfonet says that JReport 10.1 can fully support the cloud environment — with support for cloud reporting with high performance and linear scalability.
