BIRT Report Engine API Return to the BIRT Report Engine API examples

If using the Report Engine API plugin in an RCP application, add code similar to the following to set the APPCONTEXT_CLASSLOADER_KEY.


          config = new EngineConfig();
          HashMap hm = config.getAppContext();
          hm.put( EngineConstants.APPCONTEXT_CLASSLOADER_KEY, MyClass.class.getClassLoader());
          config.setAppContext(hm); 

Setup

1. Add the BIRT Viewer plug-in to your project dependencies. Runtime dependencies will be determined by what options your reports use. For example if you use a JDBC data source, then the JDBC plug-in will be required at runtime.

2. Call WebViewer.display from your code. Use one of the following options. Note that browser will need to be defined as an org.eclipse.swt.browser.Browser.

This is a great example but it took me a few tries to make it work.

After importing the BIRT RCP Viewer example project, I had to create a new Run Configuration, select the Plug-ins tab, and then press the Select All button. After that, the example ran perfectly. --Vdodson.actuate.com 12:36, 8 June 2007 (EDT)
