Chapter 4. Deploying a BIRT Report to an Application Server

One way to view a BIRT report on the web is to deploy the BIRT report viewer to an application server, such as Apache Tomcat, IBM WebSphere, JBoss, or BEA WebLogic. The BIRT Report Engine includes the BIRT report viewer as a web archive (.war) file and as a set of files and folders.
