DataVision is a reporting tool similar to Crystal Reports. Reports can be designed using a drag-and-drop GUI or a text editor. They may be run, viewed, and printed from the application or exported as HTML, XML, PDF, Excel, LaTeX2e, DocBook, or tab- or comma-delimited text files. The output files produced by LaTeX2e and DocBook can in turn be used to produce PDF, text, HTML, PostScript, and more. It can generate reports from JDBC databases or text data files. Report descriptions are stored as XML files.
