Unlocking Non-Relational Data with Ease

Pentaho Reporting can easily access data from many different sources; sources such as your traditional RDBMS, and even more advanced sources such as Java, XML, OLAP and our own Pentaho Data Integration transformations. Download these brief instructions (.doc) or watch the Techcast to learn how easily you can use a Pentaho Data Integration Transformation as a data source within the Pentaho Report Designer to unlock the power of non-relational data.

View the Techcast here.

Download document AND sample .ktr and .prpt files here.

To use the sample:

  • Unzip *.zip file

  • Copy Files to temporary folder

  • Use Report Designer and Open the PRPT file (the .ktr is already embedded in it)

  • Preview

  • Publish to Pentaho User Console as you would with any other Pentaho Report

  • Optional: Import .ktr file into PDI to see the simple transformation
