TIBCO Jaspersoft Ups Developer Play With Visualize.js

TIBCO has announced that its "application intelligence" Jaspersoft group has released Visualize.js, a JavaScript framework for advanced embedding of visualizations and reports in applications. Effectively this technology acts as a JavaScript-based wrapper that encompasses a given visualization and allows it to be embedded in another web application.

The new framework is included in the newly released TIBCO Jaspersoft 5.6 platform. The proposition here is a combination the complete Jaspersoft analytic server with the simplicity and control of JavaScript.

In addition to Visualize.js, Jaspersoft also now introduces virtualized blending of relational and big data sources such as MongoDB, Hadoop, and Cassandra, more powerful analytic calculations and visualizations, and new interactive reporting features.

TIBCO Jaspersoft claims that with Visualize.js, developers can now embed highly interactive visualizations and reports with more control and power than previously available using iFrames, charting libraries, or other BI vendor solutions.

Visualize.js leverages the REST APIs of JasperReports Server for built-in services such as data connectivity, repository access, in-memory analytics, and visualization design.

Brian Gentile, senior vice president and general manager, TIBCO Jaspersoft, says that the Jaspersoft 5.6 platform advancements, when combined with the new Visualize.js framework, enable any web application to seamlessly embed and control advanced analytic functionality. "This enables just the right amount of data — no more and no less — to be presented directly in an application, making everyone more capably analytic."
