DataVision - Reporting Tool

DataVision is an open source reporting tool for almost any database available e.g. Access, Oracle, MySql, Information and more.

The reports generated can be easily customized in a drag-and-drop user interface.

The finished reports can then be either printed directly or exported as pdf, html, xml, latex2e, docbook or csv files.

Advanced features include visual table linker, subreports and the ability to embed DataVision into your own applications.

DataVision is an Open Source reporting tool similar to Crystal Reports. Reports can be designed using a drag-and-drop GUI. They may be run, viewed, and printed from the application or exported as HTML, XML, PDF, Excel, LaTeX2e, DocBook, or tab- or comma-delimited text files. The output files produced by LaTeX2e and DocBook can in turn be used to produce PDF, text, HTML, PostScript, and more.

DataVision is written in Java and runs almost anywhere. It can generate reports from databases or text data files. Any database with an available JDBC driver should work: Oracle, PostgreSQL, MySQL, Informix, hsqldb, Microsoft Access, Progress, and more. Columns read from text files can be separated by any character.

Report descriptions are stored as XML files. This means you can not only use the DataVision GUI but you may also edit reports using your favorite text editor.
