It’s coming up soon! On Tuesday of next week on February 9, Exadel and Actuate will be doing a joint webcast titled Learn How to Add BIRT Reporting to JSF Applications Using RichFaces. There’s still time to register.
In the webcast, we’ll start with some company and technical background leading up to a demo of jsf4birt. The jsf4birt component library supports the rendering of BIRT-based reports on a page within JavaServer Faces (JSF) Web applications. Report viewers implemented as JSF components can be easily adjusted through tag attributes.
There are two components. A BIRT wrapper and an Actuate wrapper.
The BIRT wrapper component displays BIRT reports created in BIRT’s Eclipse design tool. This component uses the BIRT runtime API. The component calls the appropriate part of the API from the BIRT runtime to get generated HTML code to put on the page. Everything is done on the server side following the usual JSF lifecycle processing.
