  • Generate new entity ($ seam new-entity). I named it SampleReport.
  • [OPTIONAL] Include Seam project into your IDE. Eclipse Users: Add the project

into Eclipse using File > New > Project and select General > Project (not Java Project). NetBeans Users: Open the project in NetBeans.

  • Copy dir (include subdirs) from $BIRT_RUNTIME/WebViewerExample/WEB-INF/platform to $PROJECT/resources/WEB-INF/platform
cp -r $BIRT_RUNTIME/WebViewerExample/WEB-INF/platform $PROJECT/resources/WEB-INF/platform

Integrate

Change project defaults

  • Change ant script $PROJECT/build.xml
    • Add property
<property name="birt.platform.dir" value="resources/WEB-INF/platform" />
    • Change war target:
<target name="war" depends="compile" description="Build the distribution .war file">
                <copy todir="${war.dir}">
                        <fileset dir="${basedir}/view" />
                        <fileset dir="${basedir}/resources">

                        </fileset>
                </copy>
