New BIRT Functions Library and BIRT Controls Library
The Business Intelligence and Reporting Tool (BIRT) project have announced the availability of free libraries of BIRT Extensions. These BIRT Functions and BIRT Controls libraries are a joint effort between Innovent Solutions and Blackboard Inc.
The BIRT Controls Library and the BIRT Functions Library have both been added to the BIRT Exchange Marketplace. The BIRT Functions Library extends the BIRT expression builder and scripting language, and includes Aggregate and Script Function extension points. The BIRT Controls Library extends developer control over BIRT generated content, using standard drag-and-drop techniques, and provides DotBar and RotatedText controls for displaying information within the BIRT-based reports.
If you are using BIRT 2.3.2, then it is recommended you use version 2.3.2.X. If you are using BIRT 2.5.1, then you should use version 2.5.1.X.
