Advanced Reporting Module


The Advanced Reporting Module adds enhanced reporting, charting and business intelligence capabilities to RF Code’s Asset Manager and Sensor Manager, allowing users total control over the content, format, layout and general look of reports and graphs. The following capabilities are provided by the Advanced Reporting Module:

  • Advanced lists, grids, simple tables and cross tab tables
  • Conditional formatting for any data in table or list utilizing such items as summaries, totals, averages as well as fonts and color coding
  • A wide variety of chart styles such as line, bar, pie, area, meter, scatter, stock, bubble, difference, Gantt, and tube
  • Display data in two dimensions
  • Customized headers and footers
  • Background watermarking Include static images
  • Include data from external data sources (other database sources)
  • Produce compound reports that combine multiple reports and charts into a single output

The RF Code Advanced Reporting Module utilizes the powerful open source BIRT (Business Intelligence Reporting Tool) reporting system which is part of the Eclipse Foundation. The BIRT system is comprised of two core components:

  • BIRT Designer – an Eclipse based report designer
  • BIRT Engine – interprets report designs and creates the actual report output

The Advanced Reporting Module for Asset Manager and Sensor Manager is a separately purchasable item that is available from RF Code and RF Code resellers.

BIRT Designer

The BIRT Designer is an Eclipse IDE based visual report designer. The BIRT Designer provides a variety of different tools to quickly build a BIRT report:

  • Data Explorer for accessing and organizing the raw data
  • Layout View WYSIWYG editor for creating the report layout
  • Palettes of template based report elements such as lists, tables and charts
  • Report Preview for real-time testing and viewing of the report while inside the Eclipse IDE
  • Expression Builder for simple scripts computing additional information from raw data

BIRT Engine

The BIRT Engine utilizes BIRT report designs to create the final BIRT reports. The BIRT Engine is seamlessly integrated into RF Code’s Asset Manager and Sensor Manager reporting infrastructure so that it utilizes the scheduling and access control capabilities native to the RF Code products. The BIRT report outputs can be in a variety of different formats such as PDF, HTML, Word, PowerPoint and Excel.
