I'm a Java/Eclipse/Birt newbie (more familiar with C#), and I'm having an issue with creating a custom connector for a web service data store.
I'm trying to get to a point where I can use BIRT to generate reports from a IIS hosted web service. The web service expects authentication, as far as I've been able to figure out the BIRT web service data sources doesn't support authentication thus the need for a custom connector; if anybody else has a solution they would be willing to share I'd be very grateful.
Where I'm at:
I've crated two projects, one contains the report the other contains a package with my custom connection and query class. In the DataSource I've specified the ConnectionClass Property Binding to point to my custom connection class: packageName.ConnectionClassName.
In the report project properties I've added the custom connector project to the Report Design/Classpath. I also added it under the Report projects' Project References.
However when I click on the report preview, the result is a java.lang.ClassNotFoundException and it names my custom connector class.
So what step have I missed to get the report to pick up custom class?
