OOFILE is a cross-platform OODBMS framework. It also has a number of ancillary frameworks that provide features to compete with 4GL's, including this reporting framework.
The report-writer engine takes data in the form of an OOFILE database view. OOFRep includes a ram-based version of the OOFILE database and the OOGraph graphing framework and is available as unlimited Open Source.
The current Mac version of OOFGraph draws in a PowerPlant pane. If you want to use OOFGraph in other frameworks please let us know. The core engine of OOFGraph is platform-neutral and the drawing code is Mac toolbox level code, only the final presentation layer is linked to PowerPlant.
The same applies to the Windows version, with MFC classes used for the graph windows but the core Win32 API used for all drawing and printing.
Compiled and source code demos of OOFRep report-writer framework are on our Downloads page. The following shows one report from the demo, captured by simply choosing Copy from the Edit menu. This report shows a page header, a globally specified page footer, nested view bands (the details of visits to the clinic) and an embedded graph.
You can also see various files exported from the reports.
