Tutorials for using Birt with RMC 7.2 now available
Have you played with the integration of the Eclipse Birt report designer into Rational Method Composer 7.2, yet? If not then check out this new two part tutorial on Developer Works that will get you started:
- “Using BIRT reports with IBM Rational Method Composer: Getting started.“
- “Using BIRT reports with IBM Rational Method Composer: An intermediate-level example of creating BIRT reports“
This new integration allows you to present content managed in RMC in a completely user-defined way. The example developed in the tutorials show you how to create reference tables for your elements. Other applications could be to create index cards for your key tasks and work products or to delineate and publish your process as a PDF document. RMC ships with a lot of predefined report templates that you can use as a starting point. The first tutorial shows you how to find and use them. The second tutorial focuses how to do your own report from scratch.
