Hi Attila,

Thank you for your interest in BIRT.

The standard process is to submit a Bugzilla entry, include your comments, and attach the proposed code contribution.

Someone from the BIRT team will review and get back with you.

Thank you.

Subject: [birt-report-engine-dev] Caching ExecutionContext?s reportIR object




Iâm sorry to bother you with my letter, but I do not know what channel I should write.

We would lik to change the BIRT code and we do not know whether this should be published, and if yes, then how.

But first we want to ask for help, that we are on the right way


Briefly describe the problem


We use BIRT 4.2.0 with Weblogic 12c

We have a singleton ReportEngine, caching the ReportRunnable objects and create and run RunAndRenderTasks



EngineConfig config = new EngineConfig(); reportEngine = new ReportEngine(config); â IReportRunnable design = reportEngine.openReportDesign(designInputStream);


try {

IRunAndRenderTask task = reportEngine.createRunAndRenderTask(design);

PDFRenderOption options = new PDFRenderOption(); options.setOutputStream(outputStream);



Map appContext = task.getAppContext();







return outputStream.toByteArray();

} catch (EngineException e) {

throw new EJBException(e);

} finally {

try {


} catch (IOException e) {




I looked at the BIRT source and realized that each task running, the ExecutionContext build a Report (reportIR) object. It seems to me, this object is a model object and does not change after was built.

(Except Reportâs query map and the corresponding maps. But when these maps is modified, report object is synchronized) So, I think the report object could be cached, for performance improvement.

(I cached report object, tests the operation, and it seems to work.

But iâm not sure it is a good solution.)


Is it a useful solution caching the report object?

If not, why?

If yes,:

Is there already a working solution?

Is there some limitation, if we work that? (eg.: the same ReportRunnable object donât create and run task in multiple thread) If no such solution, and we work out this, how we publish the source?

(We have to publish or not?)


Thanks in advance!
