The sample that ships with ReportWeaver contains a extension class which is described in detail here.

The tesschema.rsd file contains the following view:

<view name="Order" class="com.qintsoft.joria.examples.beansapi.Order" 
		<member name="OrderNo" src="orderId"/>
		<member name="netValue" src="value"/>
		<member name="date" src="date"/>
		<member name="calDate" src="calDate"/>
		<member name="positions" view="OrderItemArray" src="items"/>
		<member name="customer" view="CustomerOrg" src="customer"/>
		<member name="boxes">
			<extmethod name="getBoxes"/>

The class that implements this function is also included:

package com.qintsoft.joria.examples.beansapi;
 * This class implements extensions to be used by ReportWeaver when it accesses the
 * data classes. It provides an access method that appears as a member of the class Product
 * The access methods must be static, and they must have a single parameter, which is the class
 * that they are attached to. (Here it is Product)
public class OrderExtensions
	protected static final int weightUnitsPerBox = 42;
	 * This adds an extra method to the class view of Order
	 * The method implements a non-trivial aggregation function that
	 * computes the required number of boxes for shipment depending
	 * on the weight.
	 * In reality such a function would be more complex but here we just want to show the
	 * principle.
	 * @param order the Order that we want the reqired number of boxes for
	 * @return the required number of boxes
	public static int getBoxes(Order order)
		int boxes = 0;
		for (int i = 0; i < order.items.length; i++)
			int itemsPerBox = (int) (weightUnitsPerBox/order.items[i].product.getWeight());
			boxes += (order.items[i].units+itemsPerBox-1)/itemsPerBox;
		return boxes;

To enable ReportWeaver to use the method some requirements must be observed:
