Here is my requirement.
I have a finite list of columns (say 30). Here are the steps the user might perform
1) Clicks a link.
2) App shows all the 30 columns and all the rows (page wise)
3) User can remove and later add columns to the results
4) User can apply filters
5) User can select a column to sort
6) User can select a column to group
req's 5/6 can be done later. But 1-4 are must.
I am looking at birt to help me achieve this.
I am thinking to do this. Once the user clicks on the main link, show all the data (page wise). At this point generate the rptDocument. And then, apply filters / add / remove columns over the rptDocument. My question is can we query over an existing rptDocument. Or add / remvoe columns in rptDocument.
Pl note that I am going to use an appserver and use RE API.
Is my thinking in the right direction. Pl let me know if there are any other options available.
