I am looking for a document on what to do to deploy my own BIRT 2.2 test
project report under currently working JBOSS project.
I found a description of deployment but all it says copy birt.war into
deploy directory. But I need to know what BIRT related files are needed
and where, to deploy under currently existing war file.

Thanks,
Alex

I've copied a bunch of BIRT related files that seemed to be needed for
JBOSS deployment.
Now when I click a link to my BIRT report(on a page I created to call my
test report) I see an empty screen in browser but there is no any errors
from JBOSS output.
Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Alex

I don't know if there's an automatic way to make it happen, but what I did
was to make a copy of BIRT's "ReportEngine" directory inside the config
directory of my JBoss server (so that I wouldn't be redeploying them
whenever I modified my application). I then wrote a bit of code to look up
that directory, using the JBoss ServerConfigImplMBean, and create the
report engine with that path. This is happening within a ReportManager
stateless session bean that then handles report requests by calling into
the engine API.

Things would probably be a lot nicer if BIRT could exist as a service that
was referenced through JNDI, but I'm not that ambitious just now. :-)
