    BIRT (Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools) is a top-level Eclipse Foundation project. The main intention was to provide an extensible set of tools to develop Business Intelligence and Reporting capabilities within Java Applications (Birt.com, 2007).

    Apache Derby

    The Apache Derby version of the database is included in the BIRT download as a built-in data source (Eclipse.org, 2007). This is a major advantage in the sense that Apache Derby does not have to be downloaded separately.

    The use of BIRT in the J2EE applications can be done by creating and developing reports using it in conjunction with Eclipse's Rich Client Platform (RCP) technology. For that first, we will have to install BIRT and then create the first report that will create an interface with and source its data from a Derby database, and build subsequent reports that analyze data from the same data set at a different angle.

    It is also an efficient and effective way of building J2EE applications, a combination of Eclipse, BIRT and Apache Derby database. Although the progress in this area has been relatively slower, it has been catching up very fast with the companies realizing the value of using Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools.

    However, BIRT is a part ...
