I'm posting here b/c I'm hoping someone may help me, but this could be a GWT issue more than a BIRT issue. I've got my GWT app running fine, but when I insert my BIRT code I get errors. I made sure that I have all the correct import statements and that I added the external birt jars from the ReportEngine/lib folder to the project. If I create a java project for the birt report code itself, it runs fine. As soon as I insert the code to the GWT app I get the errors:
No source code is available for type org.eclipse.birt.report.engine.api.EngineException; did you forget to inherit a required module?
The same for iReportEngine, EngineConfig etc...
Is there anywhere else I need to put these jars or what do i need to do? Any help is much appreciated.

Have you added the birt plugins to your install?

I am trying to call BIRT code from the client side of the GWT project. Correct me if I'm wrong but apparently you cannot use external jars that don't have .gwt.xml files which is all of the BIRT jars. Or I could use the source, but I don't think thats available. I'll have to modify my project so that I call the BIRT functions on the client side, since I should be able to use external jars on the server side. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2368307/how-to-add-extern al-jar-file-into-gwt-project.

This may be tough as BIRT currently requires OSGi to run the engine.

Sounds good. Be sure to update when you get it working.
