As with i-net Clear Reports it is completely written in Java. This makes it possible to design your reports on any platform - you are not bound to the Windows operating system.
Besides the i-net Clear Reports report format, the designer also can read several third party report template formats. You can edit them and save them into the i-net Clear Reports RPT format.
The i-net Designer comes as Free Edition for non-commercial users. If you want to use the Designer program otherwise, please take a look at the different license options. If you already own an i-net Clear Reports commercial license, you may also download Free Designer Edition for commercial use.
It is possible to embed i-net Designer into your own Java application via API (see OEM partner section). It features multi-language support and it is part of the i-net Clear Reports Report Engine package - there are no additional charges for the i-net Designer!
i-net Designer uses a zipped file format for the report templates similar to OpenDocument.
