C/S: Both


I'm use BIRT (Report viewer, ReportStudio) with Webtop and i think it's a good tools in ERP ln FP5 with last version of Webtop and Portingset.

BUT i'm a very important question : i 'm to run my report (Invoice, ....) personnalized with Birt in batch/job mode.

But report viewer run only with Webtop (Infor Web UI) with Birt Device . and the BIRT device (RPT) is can not be used in other mode (BW, Worktop and Job) because this device run the report viewer.

So how to run the Birt Report in Job/Batch ??????

Birt runs with the webtop (in fact it is a java application, viewer, which runs over a tomcat server) or it runs with a runtime.
The runtime could be installed without baan but needs java.

So using the webtop you will access directly to the viewer.

I noticed that printing from the worktop or the menuBrowzer, with the device RPT, the viewer is not displayed but a csv file is created in the temporary directory :


This the complete name of the file must then fill the parameter DS in the BIRT report to produce a document.
I use this method to test a report within the birtdesign studio or RCP.

It would be possible to add a script to a device RPT_BATCH, for example, which prints first the report using the device RPT and then call a shell to produce the final report using BIRT.

This shell is included with the runtime of BIRT.
