Valentina reports are used by our oldest user -- Cognosis company, more than 3 years. Actually these guys have asked develop us report engine.
They develop some web site around Valentina Server + PHP + Valentina Reports. I know that REALbasic also was in use.
You can talk directly to Bart and other developers from this company on Valentina list if you want.
Yes, I know that for REALbasic exists few report engines. Some already dead or not supported.
Most, if not all, of them was made on REALbasic itself, right?
This means that you cannot use such reports from e.g. PHP, or ObjC or .NET app, right?
With Valentina Reports, you get in hands, true C++ engine, very optimized and very fast.
Valentina report works natively on mac win linux, and with all ADKs that Paradigma have:
C/C++, C#, ObjC, .NET, VB, PHP, RB, REV, Director/Lingo, soon Java,
ONE of major feature, on our view, is -- Valentina Server -- which is DB Server + Report Server,
Can you point any other such report tool for RB? I did not hear ...
This means that you can develop REALbasic app, which talks to Valentina Server, which generate reports.
This can be useful for small office or class-rooms. For example, using Valentina Studio, a teacher can remotely connect to VSERVER,
add/change reports, and this immediately come into game.
