We have a complex client server application which has a windows forms based client. The client needs reporting facilities. The project is to provide users will a fully customisable reporting solution in which reports can be designed and executed from within the application.
Behaviour is similar to that of MS Access or SSRS where the user can define query data using a query building tools and then map the data into a report layout using a design surface.
A suitable query builder component has already been selected so this part of the project is already complete - the component will provide a query definition showing the underlying SQL and all field outputs, grouping etc. The project will need to take this data and allow a user to map the output to a series of report controls which can be placed on a design surface.
The project must also allow execution of reports. All client server communications and backend support are already written or will be provided. This project focuses only on the production of a report design surface, design tool and execution tool, which will make use of the provided back end calls and the query designer tool.
Immediate start required.
