Pentaho: Data mining, variable page sizes and "drill-down" reports

The data mining part of Pentaho is missing, do you have in mind a new book on data mining only?

Regarding reporting, is it possible to use a variable page size? I had problems with reports developed in Crystal Reports for European and American customers, because of differences of page width between Letter and A4.

Second question regarding reporting, is drill-down or any "non-printing" technique permited in Pentaho?

Hi Razvan, I believe there are books available that cover our data mining product, Weka.

You may define report element widths and heights as percentages, so switching between page formats should work just fine.

Regarding drill-down, in the book there is a chapter on interactive reporting that demonstrates how to include URLs in PDF and HTML outputs, as well as more advanced interactive capabilities using Swing and Javascript.
