Extending BIRT with Plug-ins (presented by Actuate)

Session Type: 
Sponsored [35 minutes]
Speakers

Do you need to extend BIRT but are intimidated by the thought of creating a BIRT plug-in? In this talk, I'll try to calm some of those fears by showing some resources and tools that make this task easier. I will show off several new plug-ins created by the community from a recent BIRT plug-in contest. I’ll also show step-by-step use of the ODA wizard to create a new BIRT data source and show where to find current plug-ins in the source code to use as a starting point for creating your own BIRT plug-ins faster.
