My question is about the target audience of the book thus an opening for you to do some shameless promoting.

My team (data architects) have a tool for presenting metadata to the rest of company. The tools is a commercial configuration of several Pentaho products (ETL populates a reporting mart, dashboard to present ad-hoc and canned reports). I have received several requests from the BAs to create custom reports. All members of my team have all been coders at some time. None are java coders (we tend to be older than that).

Does the book drop down to our level or is it more for incorporating Pentaho reports into a java app?

Thanks,
Scott

Early in the book, there are simple examples of embedding Pentaho Reporting in both Swing and web based apps. Integration is just a few lines of code. The target audience primarily are Java developers, but many of the chapters including designing with Report Designer are useful for business users as well.
