Hello,

I would like to know how to migrate birt plugin version 2.6.1 to 4.2.2

Currently, I am able to create this latest version in my eclipse plugins and make a valid test. But I don't know how to generate the plugin for version 4.2.2 Birt Designer. In fact, I generate jar does not allow me to see the specific datasource that I created.

Regards

Some details:

I followed this tutorial: www.ibm.com/developerworks/library/ba-birtextpoints/
that works very well. Now I want to use this plugin in a Birt Designer I download. How should I do?

Regards

You should be able to drop the plug-in into your dropins folder in the BIRT download.

Thanks for your answer.

But what do you mean when you say into your dropins folder ?

In Birt, I have a plugin folder but if I drop my jar file (my plugin) into this folder and after a restart of designer, my ODA didn't appear when I create a DataSource.

Thanks

The plugins folder should work too, but there should be a dropins folder there, too. I have one in my 4.2.2 install.

For your ODA, do you have a designer/UI plugin and a runtime plugin created?

Yes, we have both plugin for designer and runtime.

I install birt in : birt-rcp-report-designer-4_2_2
and there is this folders : configuration, p2, plugins, and workspace.

I haven't dropins folder.

Ah You're using the RCP. I didn't notice that before if you mentioned it. Like I said before, the plugins folder will work, too. Can you send me your plug-ins? If you cannot post them in here, you can email them to me. mwilliams at actuate dot com

Sorry for the delay in response. I was out of town at a conference this week and had other urgent items to handle last week. I'm doing my best to get caught up, now. It shouldn't be any later than Monday before I get a look at it. Hope you had a good vacation!

I'm seeing the same as you. It's likely just from some sort of change in the newer version. Do you have all the code for the plug-in still, so you can try rebuilding and testing it with 4.2?

Hello

I'm the author of this plugin.
I used Eclipse Juno 4.2 with BIRT plugin 4.2

For testing my plugin, i launch a RCP application from Eclipse (from overview tab of designer plugin.xml).
From there when I create a data source for my report I see my data source.

Then I used the Export Wizard to generate the jar., I copy it in the plugins directory of BIRT Designer. When I launch it and create a report, I do not see my data source.

Tank you for your help.

Regards.

Any way you can send me the code? If you cannot post in here, can you send it to me at mwilliams at actuate?
