BIRT Driver Improvements

Type: Feature requestVersion: 2.3.6Priority: HighStatus: FixedReplies: 7
#1

Currently the ObjectDB BIRT driver has the following limitations that should be fixed:

  • It works with Eclipse 3.6 and BIRT 2.6 but not with Eclipse 3.7 and BIRT 3.7.
  • It is bound to a specific ObjectDB version that it contains.

+ It should be available on maven to be able to integrate the driver not only with Eclipse but also with your runtime that, at the end, generates the BIRT reports

#3

When could we have the birt driver avail? We won't be able to ship our product without birt + odb though we've until now thought that odb would work easily work with birt (any version) and have a maven-artifact for integrating into birt runtime..

The BIRT driver has been updated and now it can work on Eclipse 3.7. In addition, the plugin doesn't contain a specific version of ObjectDB anymore, so it will be able to use any ObjectDB version, starting build 2.3.7_02.

To install the BIRT driver in Eclipse - follow the ObjectDB-BIRT tutorial (if you use Eclipse 3.7 you will have to specify the following update site - http://download.eclipse.org/birt/update-site/3.7).

The driver (as 2 Eclipse bundles) is also attached, so you can just drop the last objectdb.jar file and the two attached jar files in your Eclipse plugins directory and restart.

hi,

Perfect, thank you very much! Now the only point left though is the thing about having a runtime driver either integrated in the objectdb jar or (better) available as a separate maven artifact in your repository..?

 

thanks

#6

any update on the runtime thing?

#7

As far as I understand the same driver should be used also at runtime.

If you need it on Maven just add it to your local Maven repository.
