Hugo, who you may remember from his OLAP Cube as a Mind Map project, has struck again. This time something really useful, a component for the Talend ETL platform that generates Excel reports using templates and a JSP style TAG language to control the output.
I’ve in the past used the excellent Xlsgen to automate the production of Excel reports, but Hugo’s component has the benefit of being free (xlsgen now costs €390!) and open source and it also taps into the vast world of existing Talend ETL components.
Well done Hugo.
