Java Reporting Tools from InetSoft

InetSoft was born in 1996 as a provider of software for creating Java reports when Web-based reporting was in its infancy. The company’s seminal software product was Style Report™. The proof that this Java reporting tool was delivering capabilities and ease of use that no others were came with the recognition by other Java developers as the Java Developers Journal Readers Choice Award for Best Java Reporting Tool.

That first award came in 2000, and it marked the first in a string of 8 Best Java Reporting Tool awards in a row, a record to be proud of.

The Evolution of InetSoft's Tools for Java Reports into a Business Intelligence Software Platform

Over the years InetSoft has extended the very mature and feature-rich Java reporting engine that underpins Style Report into a business intelligence software platform that enables interactive visual analysis and dashboards, in addition to sophisticated and flexible reporting. It's called Style Intelligence.

JSP Embeddable Reporting

In addition to delivering an out-of-the-box Java reporting and dashboard solution, InetSoft’s Java reporting engine is well-suited for embedding in your own JSP application, desktop or Web based.

For more details on JSP reporting embedding, see Embedded Reporting.

"Each application is data-rich, and our customers need easy-to-use, yet powerful, reporting and analysis capabilities. We have been particularly happy with the performance that embedding InetSoft's technology has delivered with reports running in seconds, not minutes, which has considerably enhanced the end-user experience -- while at the same time reducing the resource load in producing reports and greatly increasing throughput." - commented James McCormick, Project Leader at DSI
