While I was at DevIntersection 2017 this last week, I got into many wonderful and thoughtful conversations about ActiveReports and the business cases that existing customers use it for and what prospects are considering it for. The business requirements varied drastically from healthcare-targeted products with end users as nurses to manufacturing and the food industry. Each conversation was unique but similar at the same time. Unique in the sense that the business requirements were very different and the type and amount of data that was managed by the reports was quite varied. However, there was a fundamental undertone of the two ecosystems of reporting that seem to be trending.
PostgreSQL is one of the most commonly used open source data sources. It has an interface that makes it easier to use than MySQL. Recently one of our customers asked how to bind ActiveReports to a PostgreSQL database, so I decided to write this blog article to help other customers who work with PostgreSQL.
Last week we hosted a webinar to introduce the new web designer. The goal of this webinar was to provide a hands-on session taking attendees through the steps to create:
UPDATE: On August 9th, one of our Product Managers, Mateen Firoz, presented a free webinar introducing the new features of ActiveReports 11 Service Pack 2.
Usually, we save major new features for major version releases, and just fix issues and tweak things in service packs. But this time, we added a lot of features and enhancements to both ActiveReports Developer and ActiveReports Server. Plus we added a major feature to ActiveReports Server: a sleek new Web Designer. It is easy enough for newbies to use, but with all of the advanced features and RDL reports that developers and experienced report authors want. Read on to see what else we've included.

ActiveReports Server has always had a web designer for business users. We created the web designer to enable end users to build reports from scratch or modify existing reports using nothing more than a browser. We presumed that these end users knew little to nothing about databases and query languages.
Data sources for business applications reside in different data systems like CRM, Accounting and Financial, HRM, SCM, Ticket Management, Inventory Management Systems, and a host of others depending on the industry.
We're really excited about the ActiveReports 11 Service Pack 1 release. I think you'll like what we've done to improve the HTML5 viewer. In addition to adding user-requested tweaks and fixes, we've added several brand new features: SVG rendering, frozen row and column headers, and chart tooltips. Here are details on these features.
The Layers feature has been around since ActiveReports version 9, but maybe you haven't really checked it out yet. It is a feature that is exclusive to ActiveReports, and revolutionizes a number of scenarios, so I thought I'd share some of these with you.
