Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools (BIRT) Project Wiki


This section of the BIRT Wiki contains a description of proposed functionality for future releases. The contents are organized by major projects. Each project is assigned a BIRT Project Specification (BPS) number and a name. Each BPS may have one or more features associated with it and may resolve one or more Bugzilla requests from the community.

A short, requirement-level description is given for each BPS, followed by a link to one or more pdf documents that describe the behavior of the proposed functionality in detail. The community is invited to give feedback on a particular BPS by using the Wiki comments capability for the associated page. This feedback can be as simple as a reinforcing "vote" on the importance of the capability or a more specific request for changes in the proposed behavior. The BIRT team will read and respond to the feedback, and then update the associated BPS as appropriate.

When entering comments, we would appreciate it if you would put an obfuscated version of your e-mail address in the author field, like this:

user at example dot com

so that we may follow up with you if we have questions about your comment.

The Projects listed cover functionallity existing in the 2.0 realease as well as features planned for future releases.

If you are interested in proposing another project that does not appear on the list, please send your suggestions to the BIRT PMC.

Help us make BIRT the best it can be by providing feedback early and often!

Thank you.
