Host

CentOS
Apache - Tomcat6

I finally got birt installed and working on tomcat. I attached some sample code for the interfaces if anyone is interested.

I can use the url to place birt output on page or create pdf.

I can use the java interface to birt to create pdf.

I can use the send mail methods to to send email with or without attachments and to optionally create and/or attach a pdf created by birt.

You can see the application (all EGL) that this is used in by going to www.meatcutsheet.com and taking the Demonstration link to access the application.

Hope this helps someone.

Thx,

Nathan Reed

Hi, Nathan

Can you share the instructions or steps you used to get birt installed and tested on Tomcat?

Thanks

Bob

Bob:

The gentleman who helped me get birt installed is out of country right now so I do not have the exact steps.

No tomcat config changes were required. I do not believe any configuration changes were required on birt.

The majority of the issues were getting the actual report set to interface parameters, set directory location for output, and db connection. I have attached one of the reports so you can examine the xml. For example note the code for the create pdf parameter:

[code] if( params["createPDF"] == true ){
importPackage(Packages.org.eclipse.birt.report.engine.api);


var targetDir = "/opt/birt/reports/";
var fileName = "CS"+pad(params['RPSubscriberID'])+pad(params['RPCutSheetID'])+".pdf"/code]

If it would help I can provide you with an archive of my eclipse birt used to export a .war that installs to tomcat6. I cannot attach here because it is too large. I do not know if this would help you out but if so let me know and we can work out a way to get it to you.

Sorry for not being much help.

Nathan

Hi, Nathan

Thanks for the example. I'm still trying to get mobile installed in edt eclipse. I'm looking at the instructions on page http://wiki.eclipse.org/EDT:SettingUpForMobile step 3. I'm not sure what path variable they are talking about. Windows 7 path variable or EGL build path or what? Can you help with this?

3. Configure your PATH variable to include the Apple Application Support directory.  For example, on Windows 7, the directory might be as follows: 

         C:\Program Files (x86)\Safari\Apple Application Support


Thanks Bob

I can safely plead total ignorance of the windows platform.

Sorry,
