Now, we will create another group section and group on the component name. At this point we have our blank report ready for us to start designing. When we are done our report will look like the following. The key information you need to get started is how to create a data source for the database. For this exercise, it’s easiest to type in the SQL statement directly. It was designed to illustrate many of the features of the BIRT report designer. In our example, we supply a group name of ProductGroup and specify the product column as the column to group on.

We will use a bugzilla database installed on MySQL as our data source. This report took about 15 minutes to build. Table controls provide structure to the report and are “bound” to a data set, displaying data from the set in their “detail” rows.

The database consists of eight tables: There is an error in get connection, Communications link failure The last packet sent successfully to the server was 0 milliseconds ago. Developer Zone Downloads Documentation.

Sample Database

For this exercise, it’s easiest to type in the SQL statement directly. Below is my final report after formatting. Page generated in 0. This will be a simple yet powerful report, showing groupings on Bugzilla Products and Components with totals, that should only take about 15 minutes to develop once you gain a modicum of familairty with BIRT.


But this seems to have no effect at all as Eclipse does not show any changes to the rptdesign file and so it seems that I cannot deploy this change to the birt machine.

It was designed to illustrate many of the features of the BIRT report designer. Now that we’ve created a Data Source, let’s create a Data Set which accesses it. The order here does not matter — just note that the data control have to be dragged in the corresponding footer for the desired group section we want to show the totals for.

The driver has not received any packets from the server. Grids, by contrast, are only used to provide structure and are not associated with a data set. Report Design Here’s a rough design for our report with the groupings on Product and Component described earlier.

Here is the resulting view in the Data Explorer resource view. We will continue to drag all the fields to the table to produce the following.

From the command line, move to the this directory: Breadcrumbs Home Projects Forums. There is an error in get connection, Communications link failure. The aggregate and the row column values are added to the expression by double-clicking on the avaliable objects in the left column or by dragging them.

The sample database is available in two forms: Let’s preview the results so far by clicking on the Preview tab at the bottom of the report design.


Note that the steps in this example assume you have installed the 1. In our example here we will be using a single data source that points to a Bugzilla database within MySQL. To do this, drag a Data control from the Palette and drop it in the group section footer for our product group. Note that we are dragging the data field to the second group section we created because we will first be creating the control for the component count for display.

Now we can drag our data fields to the report. And we’ll use this method of preview for the remainder of the example. As you can see a pretty nice report can be built using almost your mouse exclusively.

The other day it simply stopped working with this Exception exception. For example, to use the default root user: Next let’s count the number of bugs for each of the components and display the totals on the report.

Therefore, we do not need to repeat the data in the detail section, so we delete it. As you can see, the header automatically includes the data field that we are grouping on.
