Include Reporting Features in a NetBeans Platform Application

Geertjan Wielenga

Sometimes the question is asked: "Can I include reporting capabilities in my NetBeans Platform application?" Well, look at this application I created in a couple of minutes:

Here you see an application (which includes print and save features for the reports you create) on the NetBeans Platform that includes the 4 NBMs that can be downloaded from a ZIP file here:


The screenshot above is on top of NetBeans IDE 7.1.1, so the iReport plugin above fits into it without a problem. You'll need more than the plain NetBeans Platform, since the iReport plugin also makes use of the Component Palette and the Welcome Screen, for example, both of which are not part of the NetBeans Platform. But after a bit of figuring things out, you'll end up with a result similar to the above.

    The problem with iReport is the license is GPL and therefore in many cases not easy to include.
