U2logic provides integration to Eclipse Business Information Reporting Tool (BIRT)
U2logic has created an interface for XLr8Reporter called Open Data Access (ODA) to BIRT. "The Open Data Access (ODA) component is an open and flexible data access framework that provides a common way for a consumer application to access data from both standard and custom data sources."
"BIRT is an Eclipse-based open source reporting system for web applications, especially those based on Java and Java EE. BIRT has two main components: a report designer based on Eclipse, and a runtime component that you can add to your app server. BIRT also offers a charting engine that lets you add charts to your own application." BIRT is being used by over 3 million developers world wide which put U2 programmers into the big leagues for tools that are not owned by Microsoft.
