General

Q: What platforms does BIRT support?

BIRT should work on any platform on which Eclipse itself works. However, the team builds the product on Windows, and this is the best-tested platform. If you encounter a problem on another platform, please let us know via the newsgroups or Bugzilla.

The set of target operating environments is listed in the Project Plan.

Q: What is the licensing for BIRT?

All Eclipse downloads are provided under the terms and conditions of the Eclipse Foundation Software User Agreement unless otherwise specified.
