In order to compile and run the sample code, you have to make sure that all the necessary libraries are in the classpath. I assume you are using eclipse as your development environment and that you created a java project where you created a java file containing the sample code above. Also you should have downloaded and installed the birt-runtime. (I guess you have because otherwise what did you set the engine home in the code above?)

First of all the question is which libraries do you have to add? The answer is quite easy: All the libraries in the birt-runtime-2_1_1/ReportEngine/lib directory. So all you have to do is to right click the project and choose the properties action to open the project property dialog. There select the "Java Build Path" prperty page. Go to the Libraries tab and add the above mentioned libraries using the "Add external jars ..." button.

This example demonstrates using the Report Engine API (RE API) to run and render a report design to HTML.

Add comments at the bottom of the example.

In order to compile and run the sample code, you have to make sure that all the necessary libraries are in the classpath. I assume you are using eclipse as your development environment and that you created a java project where you created a java file containing the sample code above. Also you should have downloaded and installed the birt-runtime. (I guess you have because otherwise what did you set the engine home in the code above?)

First of all, the question is which libraries do you have to add? The answer is quite easy: All the libraries in the birt-runtime-2_1_1/ReportEngine/lib directory. So all you have to do is to right click the project and choose the properties action to open the project property dialog. There select the "Java Build Path" prperty page. Go to the Libraries tab and add the above mentioned libraries using the "Add external jars ..." button.
