Version 6.2 of NextReports is done. The big news is that NextReports is now open source and can be found on github . You can download, build and run engine, designer and server. Just follow the steps from the README files.

NextReports Engine can also be found on maven central repository:

   <dependency>
      <groupId>ro.nextreports</groupId>
      <artifactId>nextreports-engine</artifactId>
      <version>6.2</version>
   </dependency>

As new things we can note the following:

  • Functions can also be inserted in header bands (not just in footers)
  • Cell formatting conditions allows to select an arbitrary expression to compare with
  • Possibility to add dialects by users through Java VM parameters. You can read more about this here .
  • Alert mail body can have template value ${val} replaced by the current value

To see all bug fixes, improvements and features just visit the release notes for designer  and server .
