Yeah, we use Eclipse as well ... I think Bohdi used C++ / .NET, and just parsed the files, which would be fairly easy to do (well in witp it was, there is more detail to discard in these reports). The reports were saved to *.txt files iirc, so not even a proper DB connection (although I think that would be better)... And the base data, retrieved from the scenario folder itself.
The Map is probably the biggest concern, but once you have worked the numbers, it would be fairly easy to implement, or so I tell myself.
Would be interested in seeing some student code on that, and putting it into Tracker, or you providing a stand alone...
It could be fairly basic:
Load report file
Parse report file into individual reports
Store reports, indexed by DTG and location
Parse individual reports seeking LCU, ship, airgroup, and base identifiers
Store detailed reports, indexed by unit or base, DTG, and location
Provide search and display features.
