  1. Background A drop-down calendar will be very convenient for end users, it can increase efficiency greatly. The developers of client-side program all know this. Programmers have 3 choices: 1. Develop a drop-down calendar by themselves. It is a waste of time and energy. Like the tyre of a car broken, and you don't mend it or buy a new one, but produce one yourself. 2. Download a free control from Internet. There are many disadvantages: (1) Open source controls are only developed by programming enthusiast, so no one can guarantee its qualiti and performance. (2) It is impossible to ask the makers to modify code for you. If you want to modify them by yourself, the workload may be huge. (3) If you use many open source controls in a project, the application may be very unstable. 3. Buy a commercial web reporting tool.

    If you need a reporting product, please also take a look at Windward Reports' Java Reporting System. Windward Reports is a reporting package where you can create reports from any data to generate reports from standard reports to document generation to Excel files. We have numerous customers throughout the government from the DOE to DOJ to GSA to USDA as well as in the military including the Joint Forces Command and the Navy. What is unique about our approach is that reports are designed in Microsoft Office - Word, Excel, and/or PowerPoint. This means people are already trained on our system, non-programmers can design their own reports, and we use a program Microsoft has invested tens of millions in to make easy to use. What this will deliver to you is a significant savings in time & money. Our customers report a 10 - 20 fold time reduction in report creation & revision. So where before an IT team might have 2 people dedicated full-time to report design, it then becomes a 2 - 4 hours per week effort. Multiply this across all the teams with developers devoted to report design and you are looking at freeing up tens to hundreds of developers for other work.
