Native reporting for Hadoop Hive, Impala and HBase with Jaspersoft Studio, iReport and JasperReports Server
Big Data systems are generally recognized as those providing massive horizontal scale out capabilities. Jaspersoft's architecture is data source agnostic, enabling native reporting for Hadoop and popular NoSQL systems in a variety of ways. This connector provides access to data stored in Hadoop HBase, Hive and Impala for your reporting and analytical needs.
This community connector is only recommended for users using Jasper Reports Server 5.5 and below. Starting with version 5.6, a new driver will be bundled with the installation which will be the official supported driver.
- Jaspersoft Studio 5.5 / iReport 5.5 (iReport users, HBase is not included as a datasource, please see below instructions) - http://community.jaspersoft.com/project/jaspersoft-studio
- Apache Hadoop, Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR or PivotalHD
