Birt Engine Embeded in Swing Application on JWS
Sorry if it was already asked but my searchs doesn't bring back any thread that answer to my questions.
I would like to generate some reports with parameters using Birt on a Swing java application deployed with Java Web Start.
The problems are:
- I can't (and would'nt) install the Birt engine on each computer
- I can't use any server (birt viewer or other).
- My users doesn't have Birt installed on their computer.
Is it possible to configure my application to use the birt engine which will be deployed using JWS or more clearly, is it possible to embed Birt Engine in a completely standalone swing java application and make this application generate reports in Excel and PDF ?
Once generated the user can open itself the report using Excel or Acrobat reader, so I don't need a viewer, just the engine to generate reports.
Is there a simple java project (example) to show which JAR file should I need to run from JWS and how to configure my project to use the embeded Runtime Engine ?
I don't find any information or tutorial about making this kind of configuration.
