Eclipse BIRT Exchange, collecting tacit knowledge for the user community

While at the Eclipse Marketing Symposium in Chicago, I caught up Virgil Dodson on the goings on in the BIRT community. BIRT is an Eclipse project that focuses on providing a framework and runtime for reporting; see the previous RedMonk video with Virgil for more detail and a demo.

Virgil’s update is primarily about the new BIRT user community, BIRT Exchange. As Virgil tells and then demos for us, BIRT exchange allows users to not only share tips and trouble-shooting about reports, but also reports themselves and other BIRT “configuration” artifacts.

Disclaimer: Actuate and Eclipse are clients.
