ReportingEngines, a division of Actuate Corporation and leading provider of embedded enterprise reporting toolsets for J2EE environments, announced a 100 percent exposed eAPI and an enhanced report designer for the Formula One e.Report Engine. These new capabilities give Java developers unprecedented control in building and embedding simple to sophisticated reports into any J2EE project.

The new eAPI for the Formula One e.Report Engine gives developers programmatic access to all of a report's appearance and behavior, offering complete control and flexibility when building and embedding reports in applications built with popular IDEs such as BEA WebLogic Workshop, Borland JBuilder, JetBrains IntelliJ IDEA, and IBM WebSphere Application Developer. Java developers can use a single template to serve dynamic, highly customized reports to multiple users and easily provide users access to real-time data from various sources. In addition, developers can leverage a powerful visual report designer that features point-and-click wizards and several customizable features.

Using the new Formula One e.Report Engine eAPI, developers have comprehensive programmatic access to:

  • Report Design – Each report is represented as a composite of report components including structural items such as zones, data controls, charts and grids as well as data access items such as data sources.
  • Data Sources – Developers can connect to JDBC, XML, Java objects, and other data sources and modify specific properties or extract metadata.
  • Report Engine – Developers have comprehensive control over operations including report execution and viewing. The enhanced user interface for the Formula One e.Report Engine's designer increases developer productivity through increased customization and flexibility. New user interface features include:
  • Personalization – Developers choose between seven different UI styles out-of-the box, which provide a highly personalized and familiar work environment.
  • "No Wrong Path" Report Creation – The report design wizard automatically adjusts to an appropriate dialog box sequence based on how a report design is started.

Several new demos are also included that help developers quickly learn to demonstrate the new eAPI and visual designer.
