including a Birt report to a JSF application (howto?) [message #367883] Wed, 15 April 2009 16:02 Go to next message

Hello All,

I started a brand new (test) JSF application and added a report to the
second page (after the login which uses JSF functionality).

This is now working. The way a chose was to have the viewer example
application running in parallel and I reference it from my application to
get the Birt engine:

<birt:viewer id="2" baseURL="http://localhost:8080/WebViewerExample"
isHostPage="false" reportDesign="..\MyApp\rep1.rptdesign"
width="600" height="300">
</birt:viewer>
___________________________

I did this to understand how to combine both JSF+Birt. The goal is to add
to a running JSF application some Birt reports.
Therefore the next step was to try it there. And that is not working:
I added all the tags + libs required, reference the Birt in the same way I
did in the test app
but the report is not showing in the page. Not even an error message, what
makes it very difficult to debug. It is only an empty (transparent) square
there (...width="600" height="300">)...

Any hint will be very appreciated (is there a howto JSF+Birt somewhere?)

Many thanks,
Tero

ok, after some trial and error I found out that this is related to the JSF
tag <h:form>

as soon as I take the code
<birt:viewer id="2" baseURL="http://localhost:8080/WebViewerExample"
isHostPage="false" reportDesign="..\MyApp\rep1.rptdesign"
width="600" height="300">
</birt:viewer>

out of the <h:form> section, it works!

Is there any attribute of the <birt:viewer> which do the trick to allow
the birt:viewer to be within the h:form section?
It will be a pain if I have to take it out of there...


Many thanks again,
Tero

This is just using the viewer tag library:
