Below is my final report after formatting. The details vary depending on the database system you selected. At this point we have our blank report ready for us to start designing. Still not a very good looking report but we have easily built in all the functionality we need. As you can see, the Palette presents all the controls that can be dragged onto the report design. The database consists of eight tables:

In the database URL specify the connection, and in the username and password fields fill in the appropriate credentials. Next let’s count the number of bugs for each of the components and display the biry on the report.

Here’s a rough design for our report with the groupings on Product and Component described earlier.

Creating a new MySQL data set using BIRT

You are now ready to create the Classic Models database: The table will now “break” on each new product, display a header for it and then list all the associated rows.

This report took about 15 minutes to build. Select a JDBC driver from the list, in our example it will be the com. But this seems to have no effect at all as Eclipse does not show any changes to the rptdesign file and so it seems that I cannot deploy this change to the birt machine. This will bring up the New Data Source dialog.


Sample Database

When we preview again we see the component group section totals. The schema is for Classic Models, a retailer of scale models of classic cars.

The other day it simply stopped working with this Exception exception. The order here does not matter — just note that the data control have to be dragged in the corresponding footer for the desired group section we want to show the totals for.

Therefore, we do not need to repeat the data myysql the detail section, so we delete it.

Using BIRT To Report On Bugzilla in MySQL

We are not using any of the predefined templates because I want to show ,ysql how easy it is to create this report from scratch. Note that we are dragging the data field to the second group section we created because we will first be creating the control for the component count for display.

We will also total on the count for the product group but will do that next. For this example we will start off with a Blank report. To do this we right click on the Data Sets resource in the Resources View as shown below. Not a very good looking report, but at least we have all the data required in a few easy steps.

Line items within an order. Now we’re ready to design the report layout.

When we drop the table control on the report design, a dialog will appear asking how many columns and detail rows we’d like. We will use a bugzilla database installed on MySQL as our data source. Sample Database” entry in the new data source dialog.


What we would like to show in this report is a listing of all current bugs in myssl system.

Please see the following message for details: Now it’s up to you to apply the formatting you’d like to achieve your desired look.

This ER-diagram shows the table structure and relationships. First we add the Count function to display the total number of rows in the group, and then we use string concatination to prefix the count with a label myaql display the component name and the literal “bugs” afterward.

Now, we will create another group section and group on the component name. You can now use the sample database within BIRT to create reports.

This calls up the New Report dialog.
