Hello All,

I am developing some software for data management in RoR and my Boss has decided to use Pentaho for reporting software. As I am looking at the documentation for pentaho, I am realizing that there is not much that helps me. I am unsure on how everything relates together , and what I actually need to get a way to generate the report from my database to print and/or display them. If I could get it to run from my RoR site that would be even better. If not I need to know what I need to do to get the reports printed and to be able to be viewed.

Thanks for any help.

If what you need is to evaluate the capabilities of the platform, I'd start by installing a demo and playing around with it:


Generating reports from a database and viewing/printing them is most certainly something that's within the platform's capabilities :D

And yes, the platform is fully customizable. You should have no problem integrating it with your apps.
