An Overview of Jasper Reports Scriptlet Class

Scriplets in Jaspersoft

Scriptlets are sequences of Java code that are executed every time a report event occurs. Values of report variables can be affected through scriptlets. A scriptlet is a java class, which must extend either of the following classes: • net.sf.jasperreports.engine.JRAbstractScriptlet − This class contains a few abstract methods that must be overridden in every implementation. These methods are called automatically by JasperReports at the appropriate moment. The developer must implement all the abstract methods. • net.sf.jasperreports.engine.JRDefaultScriptlet − This class contains default empty implementations of every method in JRAbstractScriptlet. A developer is only required to implement those methods depends upon the needs of their project. The following table lists some of the methods in the above class. These methods will be called by the report engine at the appropriate time, during the report filling phase. Method Description public void beforeReportInit() Called before report initialization public void afterReportInit() Called after report initialization. public void beforePageInit() Called before each page is initialized. public void afterPageInit() Called after each page is initialized. public void beforeColumnInit() Called before each column is initialized. Any number of scriptlets can be specified per report. If no scriptlet is specified for a report, the engine still creates a single […]

Visualization types supported in Amazon Quicksight

Amazon Quicksight

Amazon QuickSight supports assorted visualizations that facilitate different analytical approaches: ● Comparison and distribution – You can use the bar chart visual type to create a single-measure, multi-measure or clustered bar chart by using a dimension for the X or Y axis and a measure for the value.● Changes over time – Line charts show the individual values of a set of measures against the range displayed, whereas area line charts are represented by a colored area.● Correlation – Using heat map and scatter plots you can measure the intersection of the two dimensions.● Aggregation – It is the practice of grouping multiple objects with similar characteristics into a single object.● Tabular – Using pivot tables for tabular form you can add up to 20 fields as rows and 20 fields as columns. DataTerrain, with years of experience and reliable experts, is ready to assist. We have served more than 250 customers in the US and over 70 customers worldwide.
