Windward is simply the easiest and most flexible way to create professional reports from your SQL Server database.
Create and manage an unlimited number of SQL Server reports based on tables or queries. Take advantage of a friendly wizard-style interface to select only the data you wish to view on your report, sort the data in any manner, export reports to all common formats - and much more.
Key Windward SQL Server reporting benefits
- A solution that runs on YOUR platform. Windward is available for Java (pure Java), .NET (100% managed code) and virtually any other programming language.
- Easy creation of high-performance, multi-threaded and modular applications in Java, C#, VisualBasic, C++, Python, or PHP that you can build and run on desktop, server and embedded platforms.
- Fast template design. You design reports in Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint, so there's little training or learning curve – and you get a UI that is superbly designed for document generation. Plus, the non-banded design tool lets you do things that are impossible with other SQL Server reporting tools.
- Simple incorporation. Incorporating Windward into your program can take as little as five lines of code. (Note: template design is in Office but the engine does not use Office - details at Behind the Scenes.)
- The ability to easily generate complex queries. The SQL Wizard is so intuitive that even someone new to SQL Server reporting can generate almost any query.
- Streamlined data access. Create datasets of complex views to provide simple tables to access that data.
- Significant time savings through reusable elements. Windward Pods give you a powerful way to drag and drop data tags and complex sub reports – with no limitation on the combination of documents and tags in the Pod. Plus, you can pull in additional text and documents with a single tag, repeat parts of the document, include conditional parts of the document, and more.
- Powerful data selection. Commands to select data include a large number of macros, and you can easily add your own macros for more power.
- Lightning-fast report generation. Report generation is measured in tens of pages per second, not seconds per page.
With Windward, your template is a free-form document – exactly how SQL server reporting and document generation should be.
