SVG support in charting engine [message #4] Tue, 24 August 2004 21:49 Go to next message

Hello,

Is the charting engine going to support SVG? is it going to be new code
or we would take a current open source charting engine as the base?

Thanks,
Sunny Chan

Hi Sunny,

We are currently looking at various options here and are interested in
feedback. In general, the bulk of BIRT is going to be new code designed from
the outset to meet the needs of the Eclipse developer -- however we clearly
want to leverage existing code wherever we can and charting is one of the
areas where we may be able to do that. We do have a charting package that we
are considering donating, but we are not sure it would be the best fit for
the needs of the project.

An interesting aspect of the charting project is that while we clearly need
rich charting capabilities for reporting, I expect that it will be of
general interest in other areas. We will need to pay attention to make sure
that we leverage charting work across the Eclipse projects.

What has been your experience with any open source charting out there? Any
recommendations that we should look at?

How are you looking to use the charting code? What sort of APIs would you
need? What type of output formats?

Mark

This project sounds like it going to be very useful to many people.

In fact in the Hyades project we have an example SVG report generator associated
with test results. We are carrying a line time for later this year to provide a
serious and robust update to that code as well as an SWT based rendering of the
same data.

It would seem we should discuss a cross project opportunity soon ;-)

We have existing, robust SVG charting technology which is currently used
in several IBM products in addition to the example report generator Harm
mentions. To tie this back to Mike's comments re EMF models, the data
input model to our SVG charting component was generated from an XML schema
using EMF and while it was changed to not require EMF, it would be a
simple task to additionally support the EMF version.

Chris,

Is the SVG charting technology you refer to already part of the Eclipse
platform? From a quick look, I could not see this as part of any existing
projects.

If not, is this something that IBM is considering donating?

Paul.

We have a first breath of this in Hyades as a sample report generator, and we
are carrying a feature make this first class in upcoming releases. I have spoken
with WenFeng Li and we are arranging a call to go over what we have with the
team.

FOP has support for SVG and there are many applications that output SVG. Is
there a way in BIRT to embed SVG so that any SVG producing application,
including chart engines, could be integrated easily.

From the charting side, we are looking for PNG / JPG / GIF for HTML output
(with image maps if possible) and SVG for PDF output. Output to MS Office
format documents (doc and xls) would be really good as well.

"Microsoft has already made the specifications for the XML document formats
in Office 2003 available on a royalty-free basis. Office 12, which is
expected to be completed by the end of 2006, will save documents by default
in the Open XML format." -- news.com

And look at OpenDocument as well, please. Used by OpenOffice.

IBM to support OpenDocument early next year:
