I am working on module that will be installed in a core web application on a server. The module is written using spring mvc using a couple of libraries including the Eclipse birt libraries. Currently, the birt runtime engine is downloaded and installed separately on the same server. The web application is configured via a settings page to point to this birt runtime specified via a path.

Now, I want to include the birt runtime engine in the module to eliminate the steps of downloading, installing the birt runtime and configuring the module in the web app to use the engine.

Someone said birt has a large footprint like over 100 MB. I have actually checked on my machine as specified below. Although, the report engine is only about 36 MB. And I think the report engine is the only one i need

Could you please advise the steps i need to take to integrate the birt runtime or just the birt report engine only into my module. I am not using the birt viewer as i am basically using the birt for rendering to different formats like pdf, doc, etc, only.

If you are using the the RE API all you need is the files in the lib
directory.
