It is very good to see a book (Pentaho Reporting 3.5 for Java Developers) from the Engineering Team Lead at Pentaho.

I have read that Pentaho offers complete range of business intelligence (BI) capabilities including reporting, analysis, dashboards, data integration and data mining. Is this book focused on "Reporting" features of Pentaho?

Who are the target audience? Can someone who is new to Pentaho can read this book and create reports in Pentaho? Or do we need to have prior knowledge of Pentaho? Or any knowledge of reporting tools needed?

Hello,

This book is strictly focused on Pentaho Reporting. The primary audience for the book are Java developers who are looking to embed reporting into their Java applications. The secondary audience are business users who want to use an out of the box reporting solution. No prior knowledge of Pentaho software is necessary to utilize this book. The first few chapters take the user step by step through the Report Designer, so no knowledge of other reporting tools are required either.

That is indeed a double good news!
