  1. #1


    Hi all, I'm trying hard to get my reports to work on pentaho due to pentaho doesn't support birt resource libraries.
    I have upgrade lastet release of PCI to BIRT 2.2 (I have a lot of report with crosstabs), I have a principal library (usefull) where I have defined connections, styles, ...
    But when I try to execute the action an error occur, if I open the rptdesign and hard code the path to the library it works great!!!
    It's really important to allow to configure the resource path to solve this problems.
    But I think there is a bug too because the runtime must try to read the library in the local directory and it isn't.

    If someone solve this, please tell me how!!! I have gave up and I'm hardcoding my reports!!!!

    Default Possible solution

    I don't know which version of BIRT has pentaho actually because I put 2.2, but with BIRT 2.1 it should work too.
    In pentaho-solution/system/BIRT I have created a resources directory.
    I have modified the BirtSystemListener adding a few lines to put the resource folder.
    String birtResourcePath = PentahoSystem.getApplicationContext().getSolutionPath("system/BIRT/resources");
    birtResourcePath = birtResourcePath.replaceAll("\\\\.\\\\", "\\\\");

    The file is attached!!!

    And that's all!!!
    But I have to read more the code to find how to set to find resources in the rptdesign directory to!!! This is usefull when you don't want to share a library!!!

    Thanks for the fix. I can check it in today. If you have BIRT 2.2 working in the platform - and you send the files needed - I can get that in too.

    The best way to do this is to go to and "Create New Issue"
    Project: "Pentaho BI Server"
    Issue Type: "Improvement"

    If you don't have an account you can create one there. Use your forum Id to make life easier down the road when we get a single credential working.

    Fill in the info and attach a ZIP file with the new BIRT files and any modifications that need to be made.
