BIRT POJO Runtime Overview
To simplify application deployment, BIRT 3.7 features a new POJO based runtime. The new Runtime consists of a set of jars that can simply be added to the classpath of your application.

The new Runtime is available for download on the BIRT web site and is structured as illustrated in the following diagram.
