Part I: Installing and Deploying BIRT > Prerequisites for BIRT

Chapter 1. Prerequisites for BIRT

There are two designer applications that you can use to create BIRT reports:

  • BIRT Report Designer

    Requires multiple Eclipse platform components and a Java Development Kit (JDK). This designer version provides all the functionality of BIRT RCP Report Designer, plus support for writing Java code. BIRT Report Designer is useful for a report designer who wants to modify the underlying Java or JavaScript code that BIRT uses to create a report.

  • BIRT RCP Report Designer

    A stand-alone module for report developers who do not have programming experience. This designer is based on the Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP). BIRT RCP Report Designer is a stand-alone package, which requires only a Java JDK as an additional resource.
