This discussion will focus on the more advanced reporting features found in the BIRT Report Designer including report customization using expressions and scripting, building reports with re-use in mind using libraries and templates, and internationalization of report elements. We will cover the use of scripting in various parts of your report building process including a scripted data set, adding scripting to report and chart elements, as well as using scripting in expressions and events and how to access external Java classes. We will also cover reusable report templates and library components and will discuss the Internationalization of report elements in BIRT.
