I have been meaning to dive into your RPG Report Engine for awhile and I
just now skimmed your presentation. Does each new report require Java
coding to be done? I wasn't quite sure on that.

I also finished up some additional work on the RPG Report Engine which
now has an RPG wrapper for iText (rudimentary) and can run reports from
RPG created for Jasper or BIRT. The BIRT addition took the zip file
from about 10mb to 150mb (!) and I haven't had time to strip out jars
and plugins that aren't relevant to the BIRT report features that the
Report Engine supports but it is all open source and the complete (and
large) zip file can be found here:
Even with my new Comcast service it'll probably take a while to download.

RRE still suffers from not having a "server" piece in place that handles
the problem of JVM warm up. A report "server" is the next thing that
will be added but you might find the iText stuff useful for generating
PDF directly from RPG.
