View Full Version : Birt 2.1

07-05-2006, 03:09 AM
When will Birt 2.1 be usuable in Pentaho? It was officially released 28 June though it has been in milestone and RC for a while.

If it is not soon can someone tell me if it is possible to showhorn it in Pentaho. The drill through reporting etc.. is much improved in Birt 2.1

BIRT 2.1 support has been checked into the code line and is available in the latest nightly build. You can download the latest builds from the FTP site. I must warn you that the FTP site can be a bit slow.

FTP Site URL: ftp://community.pentaho.org
login: anonymous, no password

If you prefer to work with the projects in debug mode, you can retrieve the latest code from our Subversion repository. Go to http://www.pentaho.org/getthecode/ to access the latest code.

Sorry for the delay in getting 2.1 integrated!

We are a little short of BIRT expertise here and are hoping someone from the community will step up and take on the role of BIRT expert or is that exBIRT? They will keep up with the latest releases and make sure that they are integrated in a timely manner. Watch the forums etc. BIRT 2.1 has features that could be supported or better supported in the platform. Anyone interested should contact CommunityConnection@pentaho.org

In testing, we found that the BIRT 2.1 Platform is overriding the jBoss URL handler and not giving jBoss a chance to resolve URLs. This has caused JPivot to not function which kills analytics. As a stopgap, we reverted back to the previous BIRT install.

A bug has been submitted to Eclipse:

In the meantime, we are looking for a work around and will put 2.1 back in ASAP.

The workaround for the bug has been implemented and tested. BIRT 2.1 is now checked into SVN and available in the nightly builds starting with build 420.
