Jaspersoft has released Jaspersoft Studio, a complete open-source BI design environment for Eclipse. Bringing new BI capabilities to Eclipse Java developers, Jaspersoft Studio’s platform allows Eclipse Java developers to build, secure, and share BI reports for free.
Jaspersoft Studio allows developers to build reports in Jaspersoft Studio and share them among teams or with their organization using the open source JasperReports Server project. Jaspersoft Studio delivers a true open source platform for report building, sharing, and managing without requiring developers to purchase commercial software. Users can design and distribute reports accessing any data source including relational databases, “big data” and NoSQL databases, or flat files.
Guilio Toffoli, Founder and Lead Architect of iReport at Jaspersoft said, “With the provided Eclipse reporting tools, developers can get started with report design fairly quickly, but the runway of what they can do is short. Jaspersoft Studio is designed to create a richer BI experience for the Eclipse community. Now, when a developer wants to deploy or secure a BI report, they can do it with our server without requiring a costly commercial license.”
In addition to making Jaspersoft available to Eclipse developers, the company is now an official member of the Eclipse Foundation. By joining this community, Jaspersoft has extended its open software development arm and ability to build open source applications and products.
Jaspersoft Studio is currently available for download from JasperForge.org.
