Using Genero Report Writer

When you have installed and configured Genero Report Writer, you can use the quick starts to create an application in Java, .NET, or PHP.

The quick starts use the Business Application Modeler (BAM) to create the project. BAM can be used when you are fetching data from a database using SQL statements. It is recommended to use BAM where possible. However, in some circumstance you might need to create the data source manually, for example if you are using data from a file or a web service, or if the data is in memory.

The quick starts use report templates to create the report design document. Report templates allow you to make use of existing designs and to reuse your own designs. However, you can also create your own report design document from scratch.
