Welcome to the Eclipse-based BIRT (Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools) tutorials developed by Actuate – The BIRT Company™. There are two tutorials for your learning enjoyment, each fairly straightforward and designed to help you get connected with BIRT within minutes to access data from the Hortonworks Sandbox and immediately gain personalized analytics and insights into that data. There are two tutorials for your learning enjoyment:
This tutorial is a fairly simple one which will show you how to connect the Sandbox to Open Source BIRT. This will allow you to develop your own BIRT reports from the Hortonworks Sandbox and is the prerequisite for the second tutorial on integrating BIRT with the Sandbox.
This tutorial is a prerequisite tutorial for the Tutorial 2 “BIRT Integration and Report with the Hortonworks Sandbox ” tutorial. This tutorial provides details on downloading BIRT and dependent Jars from Apache.
Once you have successfully performed all of the steps in the tutorial, you have the foundation to complete Tutorial 2 “BIRT Integration and Report with the Hortonworks Sandbox” tutorial as well as developing your own BIRT reports which access the Hortonworks Sandbox.
This tutorial will demonstrate how to configure BIRT (Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools) to access data from the Hortonworks Sandbox and its integrated Hive Server. BIRT is an open source Eclipse-based reporting system that integrates with your Java/Java EE application to produce compelling reports. BIRT provides core reporting features such as report layout, data access and scripting.
