What is Javelin?
Javelin is an out-of-the-box Web application that gives you the freedom to generate and schedule reports and documents with no programming required. Javelin can run on either your intranet or the Internet as a standalone tool or as a component of a larger platform-agnostic solution. Javelin is one part of the Windward Packaged Solution (see below for more detail).
