Pro SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services, 9781590599921 (1590599926), Apress, 2008
At its core, the process of designing reports hasn’t changed substantially in the past 15 years. The report designer lays out report objects, which contain data from a known data source, in a design application such as Business Objects Reports or Microsoft Access. He or she then tests report execution, verifies the accuracy of the results, and distributes the report to the target audience.

Sure, there are enough differences between design applications to mean that the designer must become familiar with each particular environment. However, there’s enough crossover functionality to make this learning curve small. For example, the SUM function is the same in Business Objects Reports as it is in Microsoft Access as it is in Structured Query Language (SQL). With Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services (referred to as SSRS throughout the book), there is, again, only a marginal difference in the way reports are designed from one graphical report design application to another. So, if you do have previous reporting experience, your learning curve for SSRS should be relatively shallow. This is especially true if you come from a .NET environment, because the report designer application for SSRS is Visual Studio 2008 or the application included with SQL Server 2008, Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS). Having said all this, several differences set SSRS apart from other reporting solutions:

• It provides a standard reporting platform based on Report Definition Language (RDL), which is the XML schema that dictates the common structure of all SSRS reports. This allows for report creation from any third-party application that supports the RDL schema.
• SSRS is an integral part of the SQL Server 2008 release.
• SSRS offers features out of the box that in other products would be expensive additions to a basic deployment. These features include subscription services, report caching, report history, and scheduling of report execution.
• SSRS, being a Web-based solution, can be deployed across a variety of platforms.

This book was written in parallel with a real SSRS deployment for a health-care application, so it covers almost every design and deployment consideration for SSRS, always from the standpoint of how to get the job done effectively. You’ll find step-by-step guides, practical tips, and best practices, along with code samples that you’ll be able to modify and use in your own SSRS applications.

Body language: How to read others’ thoughts by their gestures
When I first heard about ‘body language’ at a seminar in 1971, I became so excited about it that I wanted to learn more. The speaker told us about some of the research done by Professor Ray Birdwhistell at the University of Louisville, which had shown that more human communication took place by the use of gestures, postures, position...

Faith, Politics, and Power: The Politics of Faith-Based Initiatives

There is often more than meets the eye where politics, religion and money are concerned. This is certainly the case with the Faith-Based Initiative. Section 104, a small provision of the 1996 Welfare Reform bill called "Charitable Choice," was the beginning of what we now know as the Faith-Based Initiative. In its original form, the...
