ObjectDB ObjectDB

Reporting Engine?


New to java and objectdb - I am looking for a reporting engine to use with objectdb. Would birt work or is there something better matched? I am ideally looking for something template based with external template designer to customize the template. 



Basic support of JPQL / EJB QL is available for both Birt (using an external extension) and Jasper - but it seems to be unstable, outdated and not widely used. In addition, it has never been tested with ObjectDB.

Currently ObjectDB users build reports mainly as web pages using JSP, JSF, etc. (with code for running queries).

I will do some checks to see if ObjectDB - Birt integration could be supported.

ObjectDB version 2.2.7 that was just released adds support of using Birt for report generation.

In short, you have to install an additional plugin in Eclipse EE (using  Help > Install New Software...) from:


The plugin includes an implementation of a new ObjectDB data source.

A detailed tutorial on using ObjectDB with Birt will be published very soon.
