Open sauced Jaspersoft?

In the past, I've dabbled a bit with Jaspersoft's reporting engine, back in the days when it was still called Panscopic. I'm just getting back to working with Scope Server now as I'm revisiting an old project, did some checking and it turned out they've open sourced the product since early last year. Subscribed!

We didn't open source the panscopic product, we took JasperReports and built a new set of products all open source. nammely JasperServer and JasperAnalysis. check out Jasperforge.org.

Is you are coming back to OSBI, you should really check out the Pentaho Open BI Suite. More than just Reporting solution, Pentaho is the only OS end-to-end BI platform from Data Integration to Reporting to Analysis to Data Mining. Jasper even leverages Pentaho's Mondrian project as the core of their Analysis solution.

Awesome technology - check it out!

To clear up some of what goos said.

JasperAnalysis is not "just Reporting solution" (sic) but an end to end BI platform encompassing data integration, query, reporting and analytics.

JasperAnalysis does use Mondrian, but Mondrian is an open source OLAP engine that isn't owned by anybody. Its true that Pentaho has hired Julian Hyde, but other Mondrian contributers work for LucidEra, Edge Dynamics, Loyalty Matrix and JasperSoft. Mondrian copyrights are spread through many contributers and many companies, just like the Linux kernel.
