We downloaded BIRT Version 3.7.1 and the corresponding sources. We were able to create a workspace and all the sources are compiled without errors.

After making extensions to the code to adapt BIRT to our needs we face the task to create jar-files for the runtime version.

Could anyone point out to us how this can be done?

Any help is appreciated.

Kristopher,

thanks for your reply. The link you posted refers to building version 2.2 and 2.3.
In these versions BIRT was still using it's own OSGI framework. The latest version
of the FAQ states that this is no longer needed in version 3.7.

We are confused - why are there no instructions how to build the runtime jars!?
We managed to create a workspace according to the instructions from the FAQ
but somehow we just can't figure out how to build the jars once we modified the
sources.

Thanks
Peter

To integrate BIRT into our application we currently copy the jars from the 3.7.1 runtime download into our application.
We can then use the BIRT functionality to create reports.

We need to make some small modifications to the BIRT source code.
Now we are looking for instructions how to create the set of jar-files which we can copy to our application.
(as in the 3.7.1 runtime download)

Has anybody instructions or maybe a link to instructions how to create the jar?

Any help is appreciated,
Peter

Hi,

has anybody managed to build the jars from the source-code?
We must be missing a simple thing...

How can we create the jars as they are in the runtime version?

Thanks for any help
Peter
