Jinfonet Software, a leading provider of information delivery solutions, announced the general availability of JReport 6, a Web-based solution that combines production reporting and ad hoc querying and analysis. JReport is designed to fill the gap between reporting and analytic tools, while also meeting the evolving requirements for enterprise reporting. JReport enables internal and external information users throughout an organization to receive information via the Web and empowers them to customize that information to meet individual business requirements.

JReport 6 delivers actionable information – information that can be customized by the end user to meet specific needs. With JReport, end users can manage their report views from any web browser by dynamically grouping, sorting, filtering, and moving columns of data. And, finding pertinent data within a report is easy through dynamic search capabilities and an active table of contents that provides one- click report navigation.

JReport 6 also takes the concept of actionable information one step further by offering a web-based query and analysis option. With this option, JReport automatically creates multidimensional data cubes using data retrieved by a query or report. A “push down” technology optimizes the cube operation efficiency by distributing workloads between JReport and the database server. Through any Web browser, JReport allows end users to slice and dice, pivot and drill down, up or across their business data, in order to get a specific view of their data and best meet their own information requirements.

Like previous versions of the solution, JReport 6 is built on a 100 percent J2EE platform and seamlessly integrates into existing IT environments. JReport supports any data source, including user-defined data sources, and is uniquely capable of preserving – and automatically generating reports based on – the data structure inherent in hierarchical data sources like XML and EJBs (Enterprise JavaBeans).

With reliable failover, load balancing and scalability for multi-CPU and clustered server environments, JReport can handle any enterprise reporting workload. JReport 6 also features a server performance and profiling tool that allows system administrators to drill down into any server to log, monitor, and profile system status and performance. And, the performance monitor is Web enabled, allowing servers to be managed remotely.

Other enhancements to JReport 6 include support for multiple data sources and fully functional Excel format output, including Excel formulas and charts. Jinfonet expects JReport 6 to fill a much-needed space in the business intelligence and reporting marketplace. For more information, visit www.jinfonet.com.
