You're invited to join us for a two-day online class (six hours total), delivered remotely on April 18 and 19.
OpenRPT is available as a free-standing tool on Sourceforge, but it's also embedded in PostBooks, the free and open source accounting, CRM, and ERP system from xTuple.
You'll learn how to make cosmetic changes to reports, add fields to existing reports, create custom reports and much more. Reports can be saved as free-standing XML files, or stored in the database (which is how our ERP does it). The class will run in two three-hour sessions back-to-back later this month.... read more
We have converted our source repository to SVN. This should make it easier for us to manage the code and provides some consistency with our other related projects.
OpenMFG Follows ERP Upgrade with Open Source Report Writer
OpenRPT 2.0 includes platform and usability enhancements, free and open source
NORFOLK, VA, December 20th, 2006 - OpenMFG, the leading provider of open source-based enterprise solutions for small manufacturers and distributors, today announced the second major release of OpenRPT, its cross-platform, open source report writer and rendering engine. OpenRPT is available under a dual-license model, either free and open source under the GNU General Public License, or - for organizations wishing to opt out of the GPL's requirements - a commercial source code license with OpenMFG.... read more
Version 2.0alpha with Qt4 Support source code has been made available via the download section. We will make the changes available by CVS as soon as possible.
This release adds a few enhancements but largely is the first pass at converting the code to Qt4. The code uses the Qt3support library right now but work will continue on the conversion to eventually convert to 100% Qt4 code.
Any feedback on the conversion such as problems or code submission to convert Qt3supported code to Qt are appreciated.
In response to the many requests for ODBC support, we're pleased to announce this upgraded release of OpenRPT. This will be the last release based on the Qt 3.x environment - we're in the middle of porting to Qt 4.1, which gives us a lot of nice new functionality, including native print-to-PDF on all platforms.
- Fixed problem where default connection parameters were incorrect in OpenRPT
- Fixed code to add .xml extension to filename is no extension was specified
- Fixed menu problem on Mac where Document menu items were not responsive
1) Up until very recently, the writer was available only inside of the ERP system, and the renderer was built into the backend as well. You will probably still notice legacy behavior associated with this.
2) The writer (OpenRPT binary) is similar in functionality to Crystal Reports or the Microsoft Access report writer.
3) The renderer (RPTrender binary) lets you take your report definitions (created with the OpenRPT writer) and process them against a database to create printed reports.... read more
