Making at Eclipse · Standard
Monday, 14:00, 20 minutes | Ballroom D
So you heard Ed Merks talk about how great modeling is and started creating EMF models for your application.
But now the customer requests that you provide shiny reports and you would like to leverage a rich reporting tool like BIRT.
Until recently you were out of luck, as BIRT did not support EMF Ecore out of the box. This has now changed.
Tradescape sponsored the development of a Datatools Project (DTP) Open Data Access (ODA) driver for EMF Ecore. This driver allows BIRT to access and query EMF Ecore based models generically.
Tradescape contributed this new driver as part of the Eclipse Indigo release train.
Now you can use BIRT together with this new driver to create reports and charts directly from your models.
This talk will
- Introduce you briefly to EMF models.
- Introduce you briefly to BIRT and ODA.
- Show how you can create reports with BIRT and the new Ecore ODA driver.
