The tutorial begins with the installation of the Java Development Environment using practical examples, and moves on to how to develop impressive reports using tables, charts, and sub-reports. The examples will also be shown in a Java development environment for web and swing applications. Viewers will learn exactly how to develop basic and advanced reports using the Pentaho Report Designer environment, and a more customized Java environment.

Next, viewers will be taken on a practical run through the Pentaho Report Designer. The course will then explain Java APIs, data source connections, and the development of several chart types. The most relevant, advanced features needed to make a report will be explained in the video, such as internationalization, parameterization, interaction, functions, expressions, sub-reports, and cross-tabs, leading the way to the use of reports in the Pentaho Suite (especially in the Pentaho BI server and Pentaho Data Integration).
