In A World Of BIRT
BIRT (Business Intelligence Reporting Tools) is a project within the Eclipse Foundation that develops open-source tools for building reporting and business intelligence capabilities into Web applications. Actuate, a major BIRT backer, has launched a beta online marketplace where developers can showcase applications, components and services available to the BIRT community. Listings are free and early submissions include BIRT designs and templates, BIRT data connectors, frameworks for using BIRT within specific application architectures, applications and starter kits for supporting specific business processes, and BIRT extensions and component libraries. The site can be found here.
