Have a couple questions regarding the next steps I need to take
regarding offering BIRT functionality to ECore enabled RCP Products.
RCP Product Integration?
To allow users of an RCP Product to design and render BIRT reports from
registered Ecore model instances, I expect (I'm a BIRT newbie) one will
need to integrate and build the ODA Ecore and BIRT functionality with a
branded RCP Product.
Attempting to do so, I have added ODA Ecore, BIRT Designer & Runtime
features and their dependent features to an existing RCP Product. While
it was a tedious process to identify all the needed dependencies for
BIRT, I finally got it working. Unfortunately the dependencies were
non-trivial and my RCP product gained a lot of weight in the process. A
good part of the added weight was that I needed to pull in the JDT and
PDE to get the BIRT designer and the Report Design Perspective.
Is there a less bulky way to do this? (ie - any alternative scenarios
that have been tested without all the overhead of JDT and PDE)
When Birt reports are using ODA Ecore DataSources I know the user of an
Integrated RCP Product (like the one I built above) can, from within the
Navigator View, render the report for printing or export with the
Report>Run Report to bring up the BIRT Report Viewer. But what about
reports that are deployed to a BIRT enableed JEE server? Haven't tried
this but I expect that the BIRT War needs to know something about my
What do I need to add to a tomcat server (for example) to enable the
Birt War to work with my particular models?
