Stages Supports metrics and report by integrating the BIRT system (BIRT is an open source Eclipe-based reporting system that integrates your Java/J2EE application to produce reports, see http://www.eclipse.org/birt/).
This guide describes the enhancements and additional plug-ins which will be delivered from us. Please refer to the following sources for BIRT specific information.
- BIRT: A Field Guide to Reporting (2nd Edition) presents information about how to develop and customize reports of progressive complexity using BIRT Report Designer. This tool was designed from the ground up for Web applications and uses a Web page-oriented design metaphor in contrast to older banded report writers that were developed before the advent of the Internet. This unique approach to report creation makes BIRT an approachable and effective tool for developers of all levels. ISBN: 0321580273
