I recently began using BIRT and have developed a report to use with my
xulrunner application. What I haven't yet figured out is how I should
deploy the viewer. It seems like BIRT mostly targets Java applications, so
there are instructions for deploying on J2EE, JBoss, and other
technologies -- with which I am not familiar (but I'm not developing in
Java anyway).

Reviewing this article
( http://www.onjava.com/pub/a/onjava/2006/07/26/deploying-birt .html) on
deploying BIRT and reviewing the deployment details
(http://www.eclipse.org/birt/phoenix/deploy/) on BIRT's web site, I'm not
sure where to go. I wasn't expecting to have to add some large Java
dependency for the xulrunner application --is there no way I can drop an
executable in with my xulrunner app, call it from my app, and pass it a
report document? (Or something else that would be simpler than learning
and using J2EE, JBoss, tomcat?)

You can create a real simple Java application that just runs and renders
reports without needing any J2EE container. You are still bound by
needing some sort of Java VM to run the application though.

However, I have had success using Excelsior Jet to build a native
Windows and Linux executable that ran BIRT reports and rendered them.
Its rather huge end result, but it does work.

Outside of that, I don't know what to say. I am not real familiar with
xulrunner.

That worked... Thanks for your help on this as well as the pointers to the
doc on the josso problem. Both work now!
