Hi,

I developed a webapp which produces reports. Based on some url parameters I choose which report design file to use. I give the data to the report through task.getAppContext().put(List<List<String>>) and then read it in via scripted datasource on the report side. I am able to produce html and pdf reports, but only one report at a time.

Now I want to provide some kind of batch process. So the user should be able to choose which reports are to be generated. Then on the server-side I want to generate all necessary data and combine multiple reports, so that I can send back ONE PDF file containing all the chosen reports.

EDIT: I should mention that I don't use the report/web viewer but deploy the reports by myself / programmatically. I'm working on BIRT 4.2.2, Eclipse JUNO SR2.

How would I do that? Any ideas and advices are appreciated!
Thanks in advance, Cheers, Jakob

I responded to your question over on BIRT Exchange. I'll just point this thread to that one:

BIRT Exchange - Combining Multiple Reports into One PDF

Add interactivity, scheduling, sharing, live Excel export, and JS integration to your BIRT app with the new, free BIRT server, BIRT iHub F-Type.
