Hello,

I am new to BIRT and just created a simple web app with BIRT report.
It works fine.
Because my report contains charts, it generates a png image file on the
system every time I generate the report in html output.
The pdf output doesn't seem to generate the image. It would generate
thousands of images as time goes by.
Just wonder if there is a way to avoid or clean up this kind of BIRT
runtime images files.

Thanks for your time and help.

Regards,

Alex

Alex,

The images should be getting removed automatically when the session expires.

Hi Jason,

Those images are still there even after I shut down my Tomcat server.

The following code shows how I specified the BIRT image URL and directory:

HTMLRenderOption options = new HTMLRenderOption();
options.setImageHandler(new HTMLServerImageHandler());
options.setOutputFormat(HTMLRenderOption.OUTPUT_FORMAT_HTML) ;
options.setBaseImageURL(req.getContextPath() + "/BIRTimages");
options.setImageDirectory(sc.getRealPath("/BIRTimages"));

Is there anything else I need to do in order for BIRT engine to remove
those images after session expires?

Thanks again for all your time and help.

Best Regards,

Alex

Alex,

I should have clarified, the WebViewer does the temp image clean. If
you wrote your own servlet you will need to do this yourself.

You may want to add a session listener to your servlet
<listener>
<listener-class>org.mytest.com.MySessionListener</listener-class >
</listener>

public class MySessionListener implements HttpSessionListener
{

public void sessionCreated( HttpSessionEvent event )
{
}

public void sessionDestroyed( HttpSessionEvent event )
{
//Delete temp files
}

}

You could also just delete them on the servlet destroy method.
You could also checkout the source for the web viewer and copy its code.
