I’d like to share some exciting news about our latest release, JReport 16. This major update is geared at giving developers even better tools to be able to embed operational reports and analytics into their SaaS or on-premises applications. See below for some of the highlights.

JReport 16 represents the first release after Jinfonet Software (original makers of JReport) was acquired by Logi Analytics. Logi’s dedication to not only maintaining JReport as a separate product, but also forging ahead with executing JReport’s roadmap is on full display with this combined effort.

Check out the highlights of what’s new:

Empower Your Applications

Application developers will love the enhancements to our JavaScript APIs. They’ll be able to control a lot more through API calls like configuring security, managing resources, scheduling, bursting, and running reports. In fact, all the major management capabilities in JReport are now exposed through the JavaScript API set. With JReport 16, you’re not only getting highly embeddable reports and dashboards, but also fully integratable management capabilities of those as well.

Extreme Exporting

Time to export to the extreme. All of the visualization components (Google Maps, OpenStreetMap, charts, tables, crosstabs, web controls, etc.) are now accurately exportable to PDF. Traditionally, you may only think of tables, forms, grids, and other precisely structured reports as needing to be exported in pixel-level quality. Now you can take any report, even ones with interactive visualizations, and export it accurately.

Fresh Usability

In the spirit of keeping things fresh, the usability improvements in JReport 16 keep both report designers and end users happy. Bad UX is tiring, so we’ve made plenty of workflow upgrades to optimizing styles, synching report components, building web controls (drop-downs, checkboxes, etc.), and even refreshing the resulting visualizations themselves. This is an area that Logi is committed to improve in every release of JReport.

Now that you’ve read about it, try it out for yourself >
