we are using BIRT 2.2.1 due to Java 1.4 considerations, is there a way
to configure where the "BirtDataTemp..." directories are created?
presently, by default, they are showing up in "/tmp" directory, but we
would like to locate then in a application specific area, somewhere
under "${birt home}" preferably.

John,

Currently this comes from either the engine config or the system property:
System.getProperty( "java.io.tmpdir" );

If using the api just do

EngineConfig config = new EngineConfig();
config.setTempDir("yourlocation");

If using the viewer set the system property above on the app server
startup or put script like this in a report's before factory (if its
changed once it will affect all other reports ran afterwards):

reportContext.getReportRunnable().getEngine().getConfig().se tTempDir( "yourlocation");

Thanks for the info, I'm trying to test, so first I wanted to validate
where the "BirtDataTemp..." folders where getting created on my test
system, before I implement the change. Now I can't seem to get the
folders to be created. I've run several reports and no instances of the
folders has shown up, but I have found old ones on my test system.
Under what conditions do these folders get created (again we are using
version 2.2.1)? Thanks again for your help.

Jason,

We are not using the API so I've implemented this in a report script and
am getting an error, here is what I put into the "before factory" script:

reportContext.getReportRunnable().getEngine().getConfig().se tTempDir( "C:\birt\tmp");

and this is the error:

Caused by: org.mozilla.javascript.EcmaError: TypeError: getEngine is not
a function. (<inline>#1)

Is getEngine() not available in 2.2.1 or is it misspelled, or ...?

Try:

reportContext.getReportRunnable().getReportEngine().getConfi g().setTempDir( "c:/test");

Jason, thanks that resolved the error. Now in my testing I don't seem
to be generating the "BirtDataTemp..." folders, I've run several reports
and no instances of the folders has shown up. I have old ones on my test
system. Under what conditions do these folders get created (again we are
using version 2.2.1)? Thanks again for your help.

I believe these happen when you have large datasets that are cached to disk.

Hi,
I am new to birt. My application generates flat text files, and these flat text files are used by birt to generate excel files. But while generating these excel files
some temporary files are created in my system's default Temp folder. I have created an environment variable MY_TEMP and I have given it's value as 'D:\my_temp_dir'. I want birt to use this temp location instead of the default location, Thanx in advance.

Are you running the reports with the Viewer or the RE API? If no temp
dir is set in the EngineConfig class the default system property
java.io.tmpdir is used.

Jason I used the following code in my application's BirtReportHelper.java:

EngineConfig config = new EngineConfig();
String sparkTemp = System.getenv( "SPARK_TEMP" );
config.setTempDir( sparkTemp );
It's now working for me. Thank you so much Jason.

But Jason what is the difference between running report with the viewer and with Report Engine API. I have ReportEngine and WebViewerExample folders in my deploy/BIRT location and one birt.war file. So I guess this application uses viewer. Thanks a lot again.
