Perpetuum Software LLC starts the development of a new reporting tool supporting Microsoft Silverlight. This technology will provide developers with the ability to create really functional and effective reporting systems providing no limits in use via Web interface.
Firstly, let us examine what Silverlight is. This is a new Microsoft technology, worked out for creation of visually rich Web applications. Silverlight was immediately called “Flash-killer” and is described as “cross-browser, cross-platform, and cross-device plug-in for delivering the next generation of media experiences and rich interactive applications for the Web”. This technology provides richer .Net Framework development environment, can work with any .Net programming language, provides a higher security of application, allows the addition of animation and video to applications and so on. In other words, Silverlight technology offers more simple and convenient method of RIA (Rich Internet Applications) creation.
Secondly, let us get an insight into Report Sharp-Shooter. The product allows the developer to create reports of any complexity based on any number of data sources. Report Sharp-Shooter includes report Web Viewer component allowing the user to execute only the simplest manipulations with reports: viewing, saving to one of the formats, printing and zooming in Internet browser. Though, all existing web report viewers of other software vendors provide only such basic functionality. Silverlight used in report web viewer will widen and enrich the component functionality and make it similar to Windows Forms viewer.
So, let us proceed to the advantages which a new report Web Viewer with support for Silverlight technology will get:
• No need to install .Net or Windows on the clients side, thus you will save considerable sum of money and rid yourself and your clients of unnecessary difficulties.
• The reports display using Silverlight will allow the realization of additional features which were unavailable with the use of html format. Visual representation of report in Internet browser in the html format inevitably causes misrepresentation while the display of Silverlight reports guarantees 100% coincidence with Windows Forms reports.
• Release of a universal solution for viewing reports in various internet-browsers.
Thus, new Report Sharp-Shooter for Silverlight will allow you to use all advantages of advanced Web technology in your work with reports.
