Jaspersoft, a maker of open-source business intelligence tools, has released the production version of its iReport for NetBeans, an integrated development environment for building Java desktop applications.
iReport, which is certified for NetBeans 6.0 and 6.1 and supports the new beta version 6.5, is the graphical report and dashboard design tool for JasperReports, the company's open-source reporting product. IReport has been available in beta since December as a NetBeans plug in.
IReport uses the JasperServer to deploy reports. JasperServer includes a secure repository, dashboards, scheduling, and ad hoc reporting. Both technologies are included in Jasper for MySQL, which is licensed by Sun Microsystems and packaged with the company's MySQL database.
Sun bought NetBeans in 1999 and open-sourced the IDE the next year.
"Our relationships with NetBeans and MySQL are natural given the reporting requirements of these communities, our mutual strategy for serving web-tier application development, and the maturity of the Jaspersoft suite," Jose Morales, VP of business development for Jaspersoft said in a statement.
Jaspersoft's BI tools also support other products in Sun's portfolio, including the Solaris and OpenSolaris operating systems, the GlassFish application server, the CAPS and OpenESB middleware, and the Sun Identity Management application.
Jaspersoft also partners with Sun's data warehouse partners, including MySQL data storage engine providers Kickfire and InfoBright, and analytic database vendors ParAccel and GreenPlum.
