Subject [jira] [Commented] (OFBIZ-9323) Remove the birt.tld file and all related files and lines
Date Tue, 18 Apr 2017 10:02:41 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-9323?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15972439#comment-15972439

Jacques Le Roux commented on OFBIZ-9323:

I'll remove it in 5 days or so.

Following https://eclipse.org/birt/documentation/integrating/viewer-setup.php to https://wiki.eclipse.org/Birt_3.7_Migration_Guide#BIRT_Viewer,
I read:
bq. *BIRT Viewer:* In addition, the Runtime contains a Java EE AJAX based viewer that uses
the Report Engine API to run and render reports and supports pagination, table of contents,
and exporting to all supported formats. This viewer is available as a WAR (BIRT.war) or in
exploded format (WebViewerExample). Many of the features of the viewer can be customized by
modifying JSP fragments and JavaScript files located in the webcontent directory. See below
for deployment instructions for the new Viewer.

And If I look at https://wiki.eclipse.org/BirtPOJO_Viewer_Tomcat_Deployment, we would clearly
need to use the exploded format, and so have EPL v1 source code in OFBiz which is unacceptable
(see LEGAL-296)

*Note:* We already use Birt 3.7.1, so it seems to me that we already use the POJO viewer.
But anyway the Birt viewer is unfortunately a dead end in OFBiz.

As I said above we can suggest users to follow the easy steps  documented by the Birt project
and use the Birt viewer in their own OFBiz instances.
