Chapter 5 Using Eclipse BIRT Web Viewer

Eclipse BIRT 2.2.1 provides an improved sample Web Viewer. The Web Viewer is an AJAX-based, J2EE application that illustrates how to use the BIRT engine to generate and render report content.

The Web Viewer consists of JSP fragments, Java code-behind pages, servlets, JavaScript classes, and cascading style sheets. The Web Viewer uses the prototype JavaScript framework to implement AJAX-based communications within the Web Viewer and to the Web Viewer servlets.
