Integrating Asterisk with Wireless Technologies: Part 1

by Colman Carpenter David Duffett Ian Plain Nik Middleton | August 2009 | Linux Servers Networking & Telephony Open Source

The idea of this two-part article by Colman Carpenter, David Duffett, Ian Plain, and Nik Middleton is to give an introduction to the area of wireless technologies by asking, "Why integrate Asterisk with wireless technologies?"

After answering that question, we will look at the wireless device and wireless network options that exist, and consider the advantages and disadvantages for each. We will also look at some configurations for one or two devices and the settings we need to make in Asterisk, before rounding off the article with some example deployment scenarios, for which we will choose the best wireless options.

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. JasperSoft recognized the popularity of iReport and, in October 2005, hired Giulio Toffoli and made iReport the official report designer for JasperSoft. Like JasperReports, iReport is also open source. It is licensed under the GNU Public License (GPL).
