Actuate joins Eclipse with plans to add BI to Java IDE

Actuate joins Eclipse with plans to add BI to Java IDE

Actuate is joining the Eclipse Foundation as a strategic developer to spearhead the creation of business intelligence and reporting tools for the open-source Java IDE.

Actuate and Eclipse announced the Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools (BIRT) project at a news conference at the Actuate International User Conference held this week in Los Angeles.

Java programmers need BIRT because most are hand-coding BI and reporting into their business applications, says Mark Coggins, senior VP of engineering at Actuate. Putting free, downloadable XML-based BI and reporting tools on the Eclipse Web site would save Java developers time and money, he adds.

At the Webcast press conference announcing BIRT, officials from Eclipse and Actuate acknowledged this open-source project has potential benefits for them as well.

Mike Milinkovich, executive director of Eclipse, calls better reporting tools for developers a 'logical extension' of Eclipse's mission to provide open-source tools and technologies for developers. Although Eclipse claims a majority of Java programmers are using its IDE, Milinkovich sees BIRT boosting his organization's membership roles.
