Please solve the following indefinite integral: $$\int \exp\left({\tan^{-1}\left(1+ \frac{x}{x^2+1}\right)}\right)\mathrm{d}x$$

important I have the above integral as one of the types of integrals in my curriculum and tomorrow I have an important exam. So I request you to make haste in giving me the solution. I will be very grateful to you.

Are you sure that you are expected to antidifferentiate $e^{\tan^{-1}\left(1+\frac{x}{x_2+1}\right)}$? –  alex.jordan Mar 19 '13 at 3:32
Calling on my experience as a calculus teacher, this strikes me as the type of problem where you have actually been asked to find $\frac{d}{dx}\left(\int e^{\tan^{-1}\left(1+\frac{x}{1+x^2}\right)}dx\right)$, which can be done without antidifferentiating anything. –  alex.jordan Mar 19 '13 at 3:35
Yes. Sir: This question was printed in a sample paper. –  IcyFlame Mar 19 '13 at 3:53
