NO Rave Reports in Delphi XE3 and C++Builder XE3
In case Rave Reports is the report solution for your Delphi or C++Builder applications, you will find out that Rave Reports is no longer there. Delphi and C++Builder developers has been complain for a while about Nevrona support, this is not different now. At this point Nevrona didn’t released Rave Reports for XE3 and there is no news on their website.
FastReport has been present in Delphi and C++Builder since XE2 and it’s part of XE3, of course you are thinking about the painful migration process, time and resource necessarily to make the migration. The time and resource is something that only you will be able to determine, the migration of your reports can be done through FastReport. FastReport provide a tool that convert reports created with Rave, QuickReport and ReportBuilder to FastReport. I tried this convertor last year and I was able to migrate a simple report from Rave to FastReport, give a shoot and see how complex reports can be converted using this tool.
In case you have problems to convert your Rave reports, visit FastReports forum. If you already converted reports through the Fast Report convertor, please share your experience on the comment session, it will help others.
Also, you always has the possibility to choose other report solution, for example: Report Builder (commercial), FortesReport (free and open source) and others
You may take a look at this StackOverflow question for alternative about building reports with Delphi:
FastReport was the chosen one. 😉
@Bouchez, thanks for the link
I am Delphi developer and I am successfully using Nevrona rave report in my projects.
Its powerful tools especially in code based reports, I can’t think about something else its haven
I am using Arabic and English with no problem, fully control of the report appearance and logic.
I could send to a sample of my report, please don’t exclude rave report from Delphi.
Buy the Nevrona Company or support the product. I am happy with the current rave status.
If no further improvement its ok, if code based rave only its ok. Just include rave in Delphi.
Rave in Delphi insures application compatibility, Shorten Product Release.
You can put in rave certain Delphi Edition or we could purchase from embarcadero.
I use rave with Delphi 7, Delphi 2010, and Delphi XE.
I am only used rave Code based reports with Gnostic eDocEngine VCL for report exports.
I upgrade from Delphi 5 to Delphi 7 because Delphi 7 contains rave report. Since then before any
Delphi Upgrade I check rave report existence in Delphi.
I am EDN member and this first time to Comment.
I am programmer since 1985 and Delphi is my development programming language and rave report
Is my reporting programming tool that’s me and I am happy developer.
Send your request direct to Embarcadero, beyond Nevrona they are the only one that can help you
If there is a component library that could benefit from a buyout or being open sourced, it’s Rave Reports. I think the community would benefit from Nevrona letting it go. Of course, there might be contractual issues that preventing open sourcing.
It’s sad to see any Delphi related product go by the way side. Maybe Nevrona could release it to public domain if they aren’t making enough money from it to keep it as a retail product?
I agree with people who’d like to see Rave in XE3 and following versions.
I’m currently using it for code based reporting in C++ Builder XE2 and it is working well for my purposes.
Hello, I would like to help me, it happens that I have a project in C + + Builder XE2 and reports use FastReports, now I’m using C + + Builder XE3 and the problem is that when compiling displayed an error message saying it can not find FRX16.LIB , how I can fix this?
On the nevrona web site there is rave reports version 11.0.5 that works with
(Delphi/C++Builder 7, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, XE, XE2, XE3, XE4 and XE5 supported)
But it cost 140 Usd
