Windward is a document generation and reporting tool that is primarily written using Java. Furthermore, it is founded upon the Java runtime which allows the users to extract data and present them in a wide range of formats and structures such as free-form documents, tables, charts, and other visual elements. Windward also supports the creation of paginated reports that can be exported in MS Office file formats such as PPTX, PDF, XLSX, and DOCX. It can also be made to be print-ready and a lot more.
The power of Windward stems back to its report designer – Microsoft Office. There are many amazing software programs out there like IntelliJ and Eclipse, which are really powerful tools to do your coding. But, they are not that efficient when it comes to report generation because of the limitations in its ability to freely design and visualize data. This is why GUI’s like Word, PowerPoint, and Excel are better solutions because they provide a lot more features and the efficiency of creating reports is higher.
Windward has a Java EE architecture and this basically tells us that document generation and report development through Java do not necessarily need a lot of integrations that will only cost a fortune. Windward has the capacity to be embedded in other apps. Moreover, it is fully customizable and has a wide Java API set that makes integration so seamless.
Windward is one of the leading report generation providers in the industry for more than a decade. We focus on providing solutions to businesses that need an easy and intuitive way to generate documents and reports without having to deal with technical stuff — programming languages and data sources.
For years, Windward has continuously released updates and improvements in their line of products that makes reporting process a lot faster even if they are integrated into different data sources and programming languages and then exporting the end reports to familiar file formats such as DOCX, XLSX, and PPTX.
