Reporting for ProR – We need your opinion!

ProR doesn’t yet support mature reporting features. Right now only a simple HTML-Version of a requirements document can be generated (you can access this via the print menu). A better visual representation of the requirements document has been requested many times by users. For instance, such a reporting mechanism would support analysis and traceability.

We are pleased to announce that we will develop better reporting in collaboration with the Heinrich-Heine University of Düsseldorf.  This work will be realized in the context of a Master’s thesis.  Consequently, the resulting solution will be donated to the Eclipse Foundation and will be open source.

There are several reporting frameworks which could be used for the report generation of ProR. These frameworks offer a diverse range of reporting features.  The choice should be based on the stakeholder needs.

This is where you come in:  We would like to know which reporting features you consider important or not in the scope of requirements management. To ease elicitation, a survey was created to identify these features. It consists of very few questions and should take about three minutes. Based on the survey results we will identify the essential requirements for a reporting tool for ProR and decide which reporting framework would be the best fit.

Also, please feel free to forward this request to colleagues, friends and other interested parties.
