To develop reports we need BIDS (Business Intelligence Development Studio). It is free and available as part of SQL Server Express editions. The BIDS is available for SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008.

  2. Yung Fei,

    Looks like you need to install the SQL 2012 Management Tools (+ Report services bits) to get VS2010 BI projects. If you open "SQL Server Data Tools" from your start menu, it will open VS2010 and offer reporting options.

  3. Hi Adhi,
    I tried installing BIDS 2008 from the link you have mentioned above but I couldn't get the option to select BIDS in Features Selection during installation.
    I tried installing Microsoft® SQL Server® 2008 Express with Advanced Services from the below link:

    It helped.

  4. Hi Adhi,Do we need to download sql2012 to get the SQL 2012 Management Tools or just any standalone installer?
    Please guide..

  6. WSO2 Developer Studio

    A major step forward in providing a complete Eclipse-based SOA development environment for the award-winning WSO2 Carbon platform, developers can now define a project representing a complete Carbon Application (C-App) spanning multiple products and features.

    Developer Studio, the successor of Carbon Studio immensely simplifies creation of artifacts with graphical editors and management of the links and dependencies between these services.

    It further helps test and debug them within the IDE, and helps deploy them as Carbon Application aRchives (CAR) on to your WSO2 Carbon-based servers or onto a WSO2 Stratos-based cloud. Development, testing and deployment of composite middleware applications have never been easier or faster!
