I have read the document on integrating BIRT on the pentaho wiki. I followed through the steps and maybe I'm not as technical a guy but I couldn't get it to work. I even placed the ODBC/JDBC driver I use under the two different directories stated in the wiki article.

Here's what I have/did:

(1) a birt report called test.rptdesign which I dropped into the /samples/reporting/ folder

(2) go into design studio and create an Xaction file called test.xaction

(3) under inputs I have nothing (test.rptdesign is a simple report, needs no parameters)

(4)under resources:

name: report-definition
location: test.rptdesign
source type: solution-file
mimi type: text/plain

(5) under process actions:

I added BIRT from Report -> Other -> BIRT
filled in:

name: BIRT report
report definition test.rptdesign
output format: html

(6) saved the test.xaction under the same folder i dropped off the test.rptdesign which is samples/reporting/

Still can't view the birt report.

Please HELP!
