Hi,

I am investigating how to generate a BIRT report from command line. Is there a tutorial or example I can follow? please advise.

Neil,

In the runtime download there is a genReport.bat (.sh) file that calls
the ReportRunner class for command line generation.
birt-runtime-version\ReportEngine

type genReport to get a list of options.

Hi Jason,

Thank you for your comment.
I took at look at it and here are the parameters:
-F : rptdesign file
-o : output target file name
-p : page number
-l : locale

It looks like there is no parameter which takes the data source file. Please advise.

Neil,

The datasource should be in the design file. You can pass parameters to
do things like alter the query, location of a flat file etc.
