InetSoft: Deployment of Reports

Deployment of reports is simple with InetSoft's reporting software. Reports can be sent out to mass audiences at scheduled intervals to meet custom needs. View the information below to learn more about the Style Intelligence solution.

This software's runtime does not require any special installation. It is provided as a set of library (.jar) files that are made accessible using the classpath. The sree.home parameter refers to the directory containing the configuration files and examples for your environment, and is specified as an initialization parameter in the Administrator Servlet and the Repository Servlet.

During report development, we recommend maintaining reports in a replet repository specified through the Enterprise Manager. This procedure simplifies the deployment of replets for testing and editing. The repository may also be maintained for internal viewing purposes.

You can enable developers to deploy reports directly from the Report Designer by selecting the 'Live Deployment' option on the 'Deployment' page. By default, live deployment is disabled.

When distributing reports, the Enterprise Manager greatly streamlines the process of deploying a complete web-based report repository in most popular application servers. To deploy a complete report repository, you need to deploy the 'ServletRepository' servlet as well as the configuration files and replets. You can use the Enterprise Manager Deployment Wizard to create a WAR file which can be deployed onto the application server.

You can, of course, also manually create a WAR file to be deployed on the chosen application server. If the database being used during development is different than the database used in production, but has the same schema, then the data source definition can automatically be changed by using the Ant task provided with the software.
