    Reporting tool integration with jboss portal

    anu123suya Newbie


      The requirement is to explore the possibility of integrating reporting tools with jboss portal server.
      I understand that jasper reports can be integrated with jboss portal thro the API exposed.
      Similarly,are there any other reporting tools that can be integrated?
      Particularly,Business Objects.
      Please help.

          I have been using another Open Source Product for this: Pentaho BI Suite and have been very impressed.

          It is an integration of multiple reporting tools:
          Mondrian - Open Source OLAP Server
          JFreeReport - Open Source Reporting
          Kettle - Open Source Data Integration (E.T.T.L.)
          Pentaho - Comprehensive Open Source BI Suite
          Weka - Open Source Data Mining

          The samples with the products include portlets. If I remember right, when I initially installed it, I simply modified the JNDI database connection definition and the SQL statements in the XML file and had portlets running with no coding.

          I am using JBP 2.4.1.

          I hope that helps.

            Thanx for your reply.
            It will be very helpful if anyone can specifically let me know the integration possiblities with Business Objects.
            The environment already has as set-up running using Business Objects and the possibility of whether jboss portal can integrate it with needs to be explored.
            I am not finding any docs regarding this.
            Please help.
