Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: BIRT), The BIRT Company™ and the leader in personalized analytics and insights, today announced immediate availability of the new BIRT Viewer Toolkit™ – a free companion product to open source BIRT – designed for developers and ISVs. The BIRT Viewer Toolkit (BVT) allows developers to speed integration of BIRT visualizations and reporting capabilities into their own applications. BVT is developed and supported by Actuate, and is a commercial-quality alternative to the sample viewer that is already included in the open source BIRT distribution.
BIRT developers can immediately deploy the BIRT Viewer Toolkit within a Java application server, and thereby offer end users a variety of features including the ability to view, save, link to, print and export reports in CSV, XML, HTML, AFP, PostScript and PDF; as well as in Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. BVT also shows a report’s built-in table of contents, offers parameter collection features including a date picker and multi-page navigation, and handles content hyperlinking.
BIRT Viewer Toolkit offers the following functionality not available in the existing open source BIRT sample viewer:
- Deployment of WAR and EAR file-types that are common to Java applications
- Faster document linking and navigation within and outside reports via URL adapter
- Improved parameter user interface and display such as the date picker user interface
- Easier export of content & data to multiple formats, without need to re-execute reports
- Easier document sharing via new “link to report” URL-embedding capability
BIRT Viewer Toolkit also shares the same core capabilities as the existing open source sample viewer:
- Code-level customization and branding so BIRT reports adopt the organization’s own brand identity
- The ability to view transient reports and generate persistent reports that are saved manually to a custom repository
- Uses the file system as repository for storing resources
- Ability to navigate through multipage reports
- Ability to view static reports and cross tabs
Fully compatible with Actuate’s commercial BIRT iHub 2 and BIRT iHub 3
BIRT Viewer Toolkit is compatible with Actuate’s commercial product line powered by the BIRT iHub™ platform. Organizations using open source BIRT turn to Actuate’s commercial products when their project development outpaces the feature set of open source BIRT, and the need for scalability and security becomes mission critical. BIRT iHub supercharges BIRT content by instantly scaling to hundreds or thousands of users. BIRT iHub offers extreme security, enhanced scheduling and effective report storage. It also eases the management of any volume, variety and velocity of data, offering metadata, data integration and caching operations in a centralized server environment for use by multiple reports, dashboards and applications, even for Big Data projects. BIRT iHub also features more than 250 plug and play HTML5 objects and animations.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...
