Hi,
I am trying to use BIRT in an Eclipse RCP application, to run a report and export it as a DOC or PDF file.

I have got the following exception a lot:
...
org.eclipse.birt.report.engine.api.UnsupportedFormatException: The output format DOC is not supported.
at org.eclipse.birt.report.engine.api.impl.EngineTask.setupRenderOption(EngineTask.java:1941)
...

I also tried with the example RCP project I found here: wiki.eclipse.org/RCP_Example_%28BIRT%29_2.1#Download_Examples but I have the same error.

The only way I found to solve my problem so far is to include all the plugins that match org.eclipse.datatools* and org.eclipse.birt*, but this adds more than 300 plugins...

What plugins are actually needed to run BIRT in an Eclipse RCP application?

Thanks in advance.

David

If you want to use the viewer here in an rcp app here is a product
config file:
http://www.birt-exchange.org/org/devshare/deploying-birt-reports/1194-eclipse-product-configuration-file-for-webviewer-in-rcp/

Just to use use the RE API, should be less.
For doc output make sure you have the
org.eclipse.birt.report.engine.emitter.wpml plugin.

That error message indicates that the pdf emitter is not in your runtime set of plugins.
