Webservice-Interface

Here you get libraries for Java and .NET that make it easy to work with the Allegro webservice interface.

To get started, install Groovy on your computer, download the TC client libraries and place them into <your home directory>/.groovy/lib. Then follow the instructions in the Allegro online help under "Using the TC command line client".

Cockpit Tiles

The nice thing about cockpit tiles is that most administrative functionality like placing them in the proper place on the cockpit is already taken care of by the Allegro framework. You develop your view using the cockpit development kit provided below. This will create a JAR file which you deposit into the lib directory of your Allegro application on the server. After a server restart your new view can be placed on your cockpit.

Report Data Sources

Allegro comes with a number of report templates and datasources. If you cannot create your own, special custom report using the standard datasources that come with Allegro you need to program your own. With custom datasources you can create any report conceivable.

A report consists of

  • a report datasource that queries the database and returns the data in XML format.
  • an optional report configuration view that permits you to select filter conditions (e.g. data from last month, or any other criteria). This view is completely customizable, you can program anything you like to make life easy for your users.
  • a presentation view based on a template.

You work with Jaspersoft Studio to develop your own report templates, using existing report datasources. You can also create your own handcrafted views when you are willing to do a little programming. A report datasource provides the first two items, namely the data in XML format and optionally a configuration view. To create new report datasource types you need to know how to program in Java, using the Allegro API. To get started download the Developers Manual listed below and go to Chapter 4. Just follow the instructions there.
