Hello,

I have developed a basic TimeSeries chart plugin for a simulation software I'm working on. I tested the plugin as a part of BIRT application(i.e. extending the ChartWizardContext, charttypes, model renderers and series composites) and it is rendering fine. Now, I'm trying to use my plugin as API with simulation software but it is throwing the following error. Have attached the error file:

I have include the ReportEngine/lib jar files , my plugin, ChartEngine jar files to the classpath. Code snippet is also attached

I'm a newbie to birt and it would be great if you could point me if am missing out something important.

What version of BIRT are you using? If you are using 3.7 or higher and this is a Swing app, just add the jars in the reportengine/lib to your classpath. You do not need to add the chart engine. Next do not set a birt home in your code:
config.setBIRTHome("/Users/administrator/Desktop/birt-runtime-4_2_1/ReportEngine");

Finally export your plugin to a jar and add it to the classpath. The only caveat is that your exported plugin can not contain any other jars. If your plugin needs other jars just add them to your classpath.
