Derby + Eclipse BIRT

Susan Cline
The BIRT Eclipse Project, Business and Intelligence Reporting Tools, recently released Milestone 3.  Included in this milestone release is the embedded Derby driver and a sample Derby database!
 
In fact, the basic tutorial:   http://www.eclipse.org/birt/tutorial/basic/
uses the sample Derby database included with the release.
 
I verified the tutorial works correctly with Derby and also configured BIRT to use the new Derby Client driver accessing the Derby Network Server to produce a simple report.
To configure BIRT to use the Derby client driver, see the JDBC Driver section in the Installing BIRT document.
 
 
The tool is quite powerful, produces professional looking web pages and is relatively straightforward to use.
