We are more than a team we are a family that is united with the idea to make customers happy.

Stimulsoft Company, a leading developer of software products in the sphere of data processing and analysis, announced the release of new versions of reporting tools Stimulsoft Reports 2015.1. Among the most significant changes and improvements one should highlight support for JSON as a data source, great many new features in HTML5 report designer and MVC viewer, new report designer for WPF for .NET 4.5, buit-in images in the QR-code, memory optimizations.

In recent years, the popularity of JSON as a mean of transferring data has increased significantly. With the release of 2015.1, reporting tools Stimulsoft Reports provide support for JSON as a data source. When you connect the data source, the report engine will analyze its structure and transfer data tables from it to a report. Stimulsoft Reports supports multiple data tables in the JSON data source.

Stimulsoft is happy to announce a brand new WPF report designer. This designer has been created from scratch. The report designer is dynamic, animated and fast. Interactivity has been achieved, due to asynchronous execution of all operations in the report designer.

With this new release 2015.1 the report designer for HTML5 gets a new theme – MS Office 2015, and additional appearances of the interface design. In previous versions, functions could be implemented but they could not be selected in the data dictionary. In version 2015.1 this feature is completely supported.

Reports may be different – simple ones with one page, and the ones that have thousands of pages. At the same time reports that contain more than 1000 pages require a large amount of RAM. In order to build a report with many pages and a small amount of memory the cache mode must be used. When this mode in enabled, the report generator uses temporary files to store intermediate results. As a result, the report will be built without a large consumption of RAM. The main issue with this mode was the speed of building a big report.

In the new version of Stimulsoft Reports 2015.1 Stimulsoft developers were able to significantly speed up the creation of reports with caching. In this case, this is the report rendering, i.e. the basic flow execution and caching reports. In other words, when a developer creates reports using caching, the report engine runs multiple threads. The main thread and the additional one are used. In the main thread the report is rendered, in parallel, in the additional thread goes work with temporary files of the cache. As a result, time of rendering the report, with or without caching, is almost identical.

One of the most important features of the QR Code is that it is possible to place various elements in it. These are text, images, logos, etc. This provides opportunities to have a personal QR Code. This helps to pursue a policy of promoting the brand, for example, by placing the QR Code with a logo on your business cards.

“Our company is developing reporting tools and components which are up-to-date for our customers. – says Vital Kubekin, CEO –The technologies we use are WinForms, ASP.NET, and MVC which are the most popular technologies; however, there are others such as WPF, WinRT, HTML5, and Silverlight technology from Windows. We also cover PHP; other very popular technology platforms are Java and Flex. Covering so many technologies helps keep the customers up to date with products, so that they have options which product to choose. We do not narrow down their choice; we make it widespread. If you want to show your reports in the web browser, we have tools for ASP.NET, HTML5 and Java. No problem – just use them. If you want to use technologies in combination, it is not a problem for us as well, because we do our best to keep the compatibility between our products.”
