Learning about BIRT iHub F-Type

BIRT iHub F-Type is a free report server for BIRT developers creating smaller-scale department-level data-driven applications and deployment platforms for business-critical customer-facing applications. BIRT iHub dramatically streamlines the process of generating, managing, scheduling, sharing, and securely delivering BIRT content and data visualizations using an enterprise-grade server and secure repository. Uploading existing BIRT reports simultaneously analyzes the report designs for required external resources such as libraries and drivers and advises developers to upload those resources. BIRT iHub provides report developers with the ability to interact with and export fully featured Excel from their reports. Using Actuate's JavaScript API provides powerful integration capabilities for deploying content seamlessly into other applications.
