Dear all,

I am a Newbie to BIRT and would love to render Report-Designs with BIRT. For this I used the genReport.bat-file from the BIRT Runtime.

To be honest, I found the performance of BIRT to be a little bit dissapointing. Timing what the framework's ReportRunner did, I concluded that halve the time or more was spent in starting up and shutting down the plattform.

Here is a crazy thought: What if there was some process running in the background (like a Windows service), which has the platform already started up, which just waits for report-designs to be rendered. This would be a simple solution to have a 100% performance gain.

However, I thought this cannot be new. So my question is: Is there anything like that (especially as simple as a service)? Or is there some catch I am missing?

Thank you in advance for any answers!

You can run multiple reports on a single engine, so you could write your own code to run multiple reports before destroying the engine and shutting down the platform. You might take a look at this.

Report Engine API (REAPI)
