Called JasperForge.org, the site provides collaborative tools for building, customizing, and deploying open source reporting software. To encourage the sharing of ideas and knowledge transfer, the site also hosts a discussion forum and a wiki. Free version control, issue-tracking, and project-monitoring tools are also provided.
Project space at the centralized site is also available free to any open source community project that is relevant to JasperSoft BI. Private project space is available for JasperSoft partners.
JasperSoft, which is headquartered in San Francisco and venture-backed, is developing a broad suite of BI tools under its JasperIntelligence architecture. Version 1 of the architecture, which was unveiled last month, now includes enterprise reporting (JasperReports) and OLAP (JasperAnalysis, based on the Mondrian project) tools.
JasperSoft has also released a server-based version of JasperReports that offers production-grade report deployment capabilities.
