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.
