iReports in Eclipse

Does JasperSoft have plans to migrate the iReports builder into the Eclipse model? I would highly recommend it.

1 Answer:

Please no. Spend all your efforts into the core product and do not waste time for Eclipse plugins. There are other and better IDEs out there than Eclipse :P (IntelliJ IDEA) so why not a plugin for this and the other?

To me iReport is just fine as a standalone product. As a plugin you would need to start a full blown IDE to use it. Report Designers are not always full-fledged Java developers and do not have to work in an IDE necessarily.

Move the glitches from the product, be innovative and add functionality, which makes report design more efficient.
