SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- JasperSoft, the leader in commercial
open source reporting solutions and a MySQL Network Certified Gold Partner,
today unveiled the new JasperReports DBA Dashboard for MySQL. The open source
JasperReports DBA Dashboard for MySQL is designed to give MySQL administrators
the ability to monitor performance and use, plus identify problems across an
unlimited number of MySQL database servers. Demonstrations of the product are
available in the MySQL booth #810 at LinuxWorld.
JasperReports is the world's most popular open source reporting engine.
Downloaded more than 420,000 times, JasperReports has been deployed in
10,000 leading companies and ISVs in at least 50 countries. JasperReports is
currently ranked as the 7th most active project on Sourceforge.com, which
hosts over 100,000 open source projects. An industry standard, it is now
integrated with MySQL and JBoss.
"MySQL and JasperReports are used together frequently in open source
applications," said Al Campa, founder and executive vice president at
JasperSoft. "Typically, JasperReports is used to display MySQL data in a
variety of report types, including HTML, PDF, Excel, CSV and XML. Now,
JasperSoft has built an extension to JasperReports that accesses and stores
performance and usage data from a number of MySQL database servers, and
presents it within JasperReports' Dashboard view. MySQL DBAs now will have
the ability to monitor the performance of an unlimited number of MySQL servers
over any period of time."
JasperReports is heavily used within the MySQL community. A recent survey
conducted by MySQL revealed that JasperReports is the most popular reporting
engine within the MySQL community. More than 40 percent of MySQL users who
responded to the survey said they were using or considering JasperReports.

"Given the popularity of the JasperReports reporting engine in the MySQL
community, a JasperReports-based DBA Dashboard for MySQL makes perfect sense,"
said Robin Schumacher, director of product management, MySQL AB. "The
JasperReport DBA Dashboard for MySQL can be a tremendous help to MySQL DBAs,
providing an extension to JasperReports that lets them monitor and tune their
database servers to build high-performing and large-scale MySQL applications."
Using JasperReports DBA Dashboard for MySQL, DBAs will be able to:
-- Capture real-time performance and usage stats, such as selects,
inserts, connections, login times, as well as schema and privilege
information, for an unlimited number of MySQL database servers;
-- Display the stats by second, minute, hour, or day in JasperReports;
-- Allow MySQL database administrators to monitor performance and
quickly identify problems in real time.
In addition, it can access any MySQL database server and deliver
compelling, highly formatted reporting in a variety of output types, including
HTML, PDF, Excel, CSV, and XML. Many enterprises and ISVs are already
deploying both MySQL and JasperReports and are prime candidates for this new
"Many of Germany's largest enterprises, including H-P, GlaxoSmithKline,
Exxon, T-Mobile and others, use our invoices management and controlling
application based on JasperReports and MySQL," said Franco Weichel, CEO at
Komm-Kontroll, a German software company. "We are excited to see JasperSoft's
partnership with MySQL result in new enhancements already."
"MySQL is the only database used in GlucoDYNAMIX(TM), our real-time
wireless diabetes intervention technology," said Eric Link, CTO at Diabetech,
a Dallas-based diabetes intervention technology company. "Blood glucose data
is captured automatically for the patient and wirelessly transmitted to the
system where algorithms are applied and ultimately alerts, reminders, requests
and reports are delivered to various members of the care team -- all in real
time. JasperReports allows us to very efficiently deliver reports via both PDF
and HTML, with no extra programming. PDF is a must for providing clinical
trial staff with high-quality printing for their medical records. JasperSoft
and MySQL are helping us remain agile as we deliver extended reporting
functionality to our customers."
