Java integration. Not able to link with Data Objects

<p> </p>
<p>I'm using actuate birt runtime and platform to set up a simple junit test to run the engine report. I am able to generate html from my report design. But when I try to link my report desing with an report object, I always getting the same error:</p>
<p><span style="color:rgb(255,0,0);font-family:Arial;font-size:13.3333px;">Failed to find out data source of data set "BETMANDMODUL_FINANCE".</span></p>
<p> </p>
<p>This is how I run report engine:</p>
<pre class="_prettyXprint _lang-nocode">
IRenderOption render = new HTMLRenderOption();
System.setProperty("RUN_UNDER_ECLIPSE", "false");
EngineConfig config = new EngineConfig();


config.setLogConfig(LOGS_PATH, Level.ALL);
// important for BIRT to know resources
// Default Render Option
config.setDefaultEmitter("html", render.getEmitterID());

}catch(BirtException e){

IReportEngineFactory engineFactory = (IReportEngineFactory) Platform.createFactoryObject(IReportEngineFactory.EXTENSION_REPORT_ENGINE_FACTORY);
IReportEngine engine = engineFactory.createReportEngine(config);

IReportRunnable design = null;

try {
design = engine.openReportDesign(new FileInputStream(reportDesignPath));
} catch (EngineException | IOException e) {

IRunAndRenderTask task = engine.createRunAndRenderTask(design);
task.getAppContext().put(EngineConstants.APPCONTEXT_CLASSLOADER_KEY, TestReport.class.getClassLoader());

String outputFilename= getOutputName(reportDesignPath);
// set the render option

try {
// runs the report and generate output.
// close the report.
}catch(EngineException e){
<p>I built the reportdesign with Birt designer professional 4.4 and from the IDE it's working.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Can anyone help me?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thank you very much.</p>


  • <p>I'm trying to understand your use case.  So you've developed a report in commercial BIRT Designer, and now you want to run the report?</p>
    <p> </p>
    <p>Are you using this with an iHub?  Or the AJC?</p>
    <p> </p>
    <p>What does your report design look like?  Specifically, what is the Data Source for BETMANDMODUL_FINANCE?</p>
    <p> </p>
    <p>Since you are using commercial BIRT, have you opened a case with your local OpenText Support center?</p>
