Best Practices for Reporting and Output - Speaker: Barbara Peisch

Reporting is arguably the most important aspect of most business applications. Companies tend not to put data into systems unless they want it back out. Thus, without output, most systems are worthless.

Use of a class for handling reports and output is the best way to create a flexible application that's designed for long-term maintainability. This class centralizes and encapsulates output. In addition, you need to separate the functions of your front end from the data retrieval so that you're not bound to a single type of data source.

In this session, you'll learn how to design, build and error-check such an output class, while building in a variety of output mechanisms. This session will also include an example of a flexible front end for rich client and a data retrieval layer.
