Report Generator for InterSystems IRIS Data Platform - What are you using

Hi all,

 

we are wondering if anybody has a reporting tool that is capable using IRIS Objects?

I know there are things like Crystal Reports and others out there who can read the SQL Data throug ODBC but we need the capability of using object methods while running the report.

Since now we where using a JAVA based report generator (ReportWeaver) but since the object binding for JAVA doesn't exist anymore in IRIS data platform, did any of you have an alternative report generator?

 

Looking forward to any answers

 

cheers

Stephan

"using object methods while running the report"

This is a rather generic statement.
If you are using CLASS METHODS (as I 'd assume) you can project each class method as Stored SQL Procedure too.

By this,  you can make them available to be used over JDBC.

Could be an eventual workaround.

No that's not really what I meat. My question was much more generic about data projection of object data like listOfObjects.
When you look at the projected data of those "object" collections they are projected as $LISTBUILD lists in SQL. So the question was, is there a reporting tool out there in use, that can handle the object data from IRIS as for IRIS there is no object binding anymore like there was for Caché.

For Java there is the cachedb.jar and that binding doesn't exist for IRIS.
