iReport goes to pure java!!!!!

2003-02-05 02:55

I am thinking about rewrite ALL iReport in 100% pure java + swing.

 

What you thinking about?

Wonderfull!

Grande !

If you need help just ask for it. I've already patched jasperdesigner to add a minimal subreport support if This may help.

I support this completely. I'm not much of a developer, but I would be happy to test and help debug. I work in XP, NT and Redhat Linux environment.

Great Idea. I think it will be a much better product that way.

It is a must!!!

And you should use Netbeans as the IDE.

 

When do you start porting? I want like to help you.

Giulio,

 

I think you are a genious! I love japser and I really love IReport! Great job! Since japser is platform independent IReport should be too. But Java AWT / Swing is slow... How about Java SWT? SWT utilizes set of native libraries for each operating system, taking advantage of all the rich gui's a nd processing speed of each platform. It would look as great as what you have now and be just as fast on each platform, where as AWT / swing will be considerably slower and in my opinion uglier.

 

 

Check out these artciles...

Just my opinion but I think SWT is the way to go for a good looking fast interface.

Hi Britton,

 

I have already tested some very comlplex gui, and I'm surprise for the good performance of swing usind jdk 1.4. The number of persons that knows swing technology is much bigger of the number that can joke with SWT. So for now swing remains the adopted solution.

I have already palyed with fire using VisualJ++.

It's time to be more standard as possible. Swing is a way more secure as SWT.

But the way of porting is very long, and the code taht I'm writing will be very simple to port to another GUI toolkit. Stay tuned!

100% pure java + swing is a GREAT IDEA!

Sounds like a great idea! Do you have any time frame to release the Java version?

but I can say you that it will not coming soon, please be patient :-)

How much work needs to be done?

When do you plan a release?

At this moment my free time is very little. I know that for many people a java version of iReport is a very importat step, but sorry, the way for the java version is at this moment a bit long...

 

Giulio

 

P.S. I'm using my little free time to understand how a korean society can take my code (or the code of an entire community called iReport) to release it as a commercial product called iReportPlus simply replacing the ireport logo, the ireport copyrights and without say: this software was written by another person!!!!!!!!

Giulio, e' semplice: non puo!

Giulio, it's simple : they cannot do that.

As I've already posted asa they announced their software, in the point 2 of the GPL there's clearly written that they should also distribute they're software with GPL.

And that's fine because they then just become a fork of ireport (in a way similar to ireport being derived from jasperdesigner; NOTE : I wrote 'similar' not 'like' ).

They can brand it and sell but also they should give away the sources and licence it GPL (so, who's gonna pay for it?).

In the past there has been other cases like that (divx player for xbox based on ffmpeg for example).

If you're fine with that (just having they're homepage linking to ireport) than the story ends here. Otherwise you can ask for help to FSF or GNU.

 

Bye,

Vittorio

This would allow the tool to run on other platforms, like HP/UX.

I'm testing iReport succesfully on my Linux box.

 

The first beta will be released at the end of may (I hope...)

Moving to pure Java is a great idea. I hope to see it soon!

I'm already working on using (using as IDE... NetBeans :-)

 

I'm joking with GUI to write an application in swing standard but very similar to the actual iReport...

 

Stay tuned. The most important task that is not covered now is the documentation development. I need documentation writers!

iReport seems the best and most powerful designer for jasper - i like to assist you writing the german documentation for the java version

 

cheers

Thanks Cheers.

 

I'm developing the support for localisarion too in the java version of iReport. I hope to release a "only demo" not complete version of the java version tuesday or wednesday of the next week to mantain height the interest for the java porting (actual state 60%)

Stay tuned!

HI ... Giulio

 

I think that maybe u can try JGraph ( Java Graph Frramework )

from sourceforge.net , it really can reduce many effort to paint elements and drag & drop and grid and zoom in , zoom out and. many.....

it is just my a little suggesttion ...

really thanks ur great report tools ireport .....

Hi Nick,

 

I have already joked with it. JGraph is a really good application (I have written to author for congratulate with him...). I have taked a look at JHotDraw too (that have good performance too).

 

There are already grid and snap to grid functions in iReport2. I have already improved graphic performance of 500%, but there is a lot of work to do (to incremente developing speed, I have renounced to handle repaint only to interested regions, but every time all elements are repainted, this will rewritten in future releases).

 

Giulio
