Spring Framework and BIRT Integration

Many BIRT users also use the Spring Framework, and while we have blogged about different integration scenarios before, many of the newer features of both projects have not been discussed. In the last couple of weeks the BIRT and Spring teams have worked together to create some examples and an article (Spring Framework & BIRT) that describes the following integration options:

• Integrating the BIRT engines in Spring MVC
• Accessing Spring beans from the BIRT Viewer
• Using Spring Remoting to access Spring Beans from a BIRT report

These examples were built using the latest versions or BIRT( 3.7.1) and the Spring Framework(3.1.0).

Thanks to Josh Long, Spring Developer Advocate and the Spring team for working with us to put this content together.

Hi, can you provide the list of birt jars that i need to add?

Jason Weathersby said...

This depends on what functions of BIRT you will need. If you want to have all available features, add all the jars in the reportengine/lib directory of the runtime download.
