Building a News Aggregating Site Using Drupal 6

by Rahul Pitre | August 2009 | Drupal

The example project in this article by Timi Ogunjobi is based on a fictitious web site development brief, and it illustrates a practical way of applying Drupal to develop a News Aggregation site called Weird Hap'nins. Bad news is always good news for the press. This is why Vaughan Pyre has decided to take advantage of this fact and create a web site that will aggregate bad news and weird happenings from all over the world. The content of the site will be entirely derived from Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feeds from several sources (each feed being automatically fetched and its items displayed on the web site).

Graphical Report Design with iReport: Part 1

by David R. Heffelfinger | August 2009 | Java Open Source

In this two-part article by David Heffelfinger, instead of writing JRXML templates by hand, we will learn to design reports graphically by dragging report elements into a report template and by using its graphical user interface to set report attributes. In this first part, we will help you set up iReport on your machine and get you started with designing graphical reports.

JasperSoft, the company behind JasperReports, offers a graphical report designer called iReport. iReport started as an independent project by Giulio Toffoli.

Like JasperReports, iReport is also open source. It is licensed under the GNU Public License (GPL).
