Besides a rich user interaction many applications need to display a big amount of data sets as diagrams or reports as part of their applications. In order to bridge the gap the BIRT project was created as part of the eclipse ecosystem. BIRT is an open source Eclipse-based reporting system that integrates with your Java/J2EE application to produce compelling reports. That BIRT integrates well with classic RCP applications is a well known fact. But the need for rich internet applications is still growing. And here the Rich Ajax platform comes into play. As a platform for developing Web 2.0 applications with the same patterns as for RCP it paves the way for single sourcing applications running on both platforms. In this talk we will show how to integrate diagrams and reports known from BIRT into RAP applications. Topics covered include how to setup the environment to let BIRT and RAP play well together. In addition the presenters will give advices how to use the reports inside RAP applications and which problems may arise. As a final outcome of the talk the audience will know everything to bring reporting capabilities into their RAP applications.
Benjamin Muskalla works as a software developer and consultant at EclipseSource in Karlsruhe, Germany. He is one of the main committers on the Rich Ajax Platform (RAP) project and contributing to the several other Eclipse projects.
