You register the driver only once in your Java application. Due to the size of my database, it takes quite a bit of time for the next dialog box to pop up; hopefully this is something that will be fixed in future releases of BIRT. The completed report is shown in Figure 8. Yes everything is configured on that side. But I still have the error. If set to “true”, causes the java.

The following installations are required before installing BIRT: If set oracledrievr “true”, the performance when retrieving data in a ‘SELECT’ will be improved but the default behavior for handling LONG columns will be changed to fetch multiple rows prefetch size.

Register the JDBC drivers

BIRT has two major components: It is not valid for Microsoft Java virtual machines. The Data Set parameters are now displayed; click on the cell in the value column for the parameter to bind and open the Expression Builder.

Design parameters and Data Set parameters orracle separate entities, and need to be created apart from each other. This is espcially usefull for PreparedStatement where a call to setEscapeProcessing false would have no effect. Set this to “false” if you want to avoid many calls to Statement. I also tried to put it in birt-viewer3. With a growing user community and strong commercial backing, BIRT has enormous potential to really demonstrate the capabilities of the open source development paradigm.


Figure 8 – Finished Report Preview. The registerDriver method takes as input a “driver” class, that is, a class that implements the java. Post as a guest Name.

This adds a lot of flexibility in the delivery method by allowing developers to customize the look and feel of the requesting forms and the ability to leverage other plug-ins on the base platform. The Layout tab provides a graphical layout editor and works with the property editor and jbc palette.

Due to the size of my database, it takes quite a bit of time for the next dialog box to pop up; hopefully this is something that will be fixed in future releases of BIRT. Alternatively, you can use the forName xom of the java.

However, this method is valid only for JDK-compliant Java virtual machines.

– Wanted to use “Actuate Oracle Driver”

Drag the fields from the Data Set to the details row. Since the Employee ID is a string, the default value needs to be enclosed in single quotes in order for the preview to show up. The only problem is I have to put the connector twice, for the reports and for my web application. Figure 6 shows the Report Detail section after the query fields are dragged into the data table.


Please see the following message for details: In the graphical designer, there are three main tabs: Dreamweaver users should feel right at home with working with the visual data table components. This can also be set as a java property: Layout, Code, and Preview.

This class provides a basic service for managing a set of JDBC drivers. Register the JDBC drivers To access a database from a Java application, you must first provide the code to register your installed driver with your program.

Data connectivity is built using the Data Explorer and Data Set objects. Yes everything is configured on that side.

Class class to load the JDBC drivers directly. In the report designer, three sections are available for data tables: Figure 5 – Edit Data Set dialog, with an example entry. Expect to be prompted to enter in the value for the report parameter.
