There's a really good
showing reports in Tomcat. It demonstrates how to create libraries,
templates and how to add the Birt viewer to Tomcat.
We can either copy the birt viewer to Tomcat or add:
<Context path="/birt" docBase="C:\birt" debug="0"/>//(path to Birt)
to Tomcat's server.xml file.
The reports need to be placed in the Birt viewer directory.
To access a report on Tomcat we would use something like:
We would need to set up a database and create libraries with common report
queries and required images etc. We could set up templates that can allow
easy editing of colours etc. Reports could be easily created by other
developers by dragging the components, already added, to a new report page.
Not sure if this is what we are after but it would make a good start?
