A crosstab report leverages a multi-dimensional data structure called Cube that is optimized for analysis. A cube organizes data into Measures, Dimensions & Attributes and can be stored in BIRT Document or BIRT Objects (.data file) (See my earlier blog on BIRT Objects). You can launch up a cube stored in either format for analyses in Data Analyzer, take a look at the short video recording to see it in action:
See the above video in full screen.
Data Analyzer helps you discover trends and analyze information by providing the following features:
- Add, remove or reorder attributes, dimensions and measures
- Drill down display detail data or drill up to display summary data
- Pivot the crosstab , which swaps the colums and rows
- Sort data
- Filter data
- Display columns or rows that show aggregate data
- Create a column to display calculated data
- Choose from several chart types to display data
- Export content to other formats (PDF, Excel, Word etc)
You can download the sample BIRT Object used in the recording from here. Working with Actuate BIRT Analyzer requires Actuate iServer, download an evaluation copy of Actuate iServer and give it a try.

If you are using open source sample viewer you can achieve this by using viewer tag library. The Viewer tab library has three tags that helps define parameter entry page: param, parameterPage, paramDef. You can read more about these along with an example of tag lib usage here.
Here is a link to my recent Devshare article with a couple of examples, one that uses actuate.Parameter class to display parameters and another that doesn’t. You can download the above example and run it with your own instance of BIRT iServer. If you don’t have BIRT iServer, you can download 45 day free evaluation copy and set it up in 15 minutes or less.

To publish content to BIRT onDemand you would follow the same simple procedure as you used to before starting out with defining a new profile. Here you will need to specify web service URL, login credentials and server/volume information. Once the profile is established you can use simple drag and drop operations to export content from designer. Here is a video that goes over the entire process.

You can enable IV for an individual report by selecting "Enable Interactivity" option when you launch Actuate BIRT Viewer as shown in the screen shot below:
There might be cases where you may want to skip though the above step and enable interactivity for all the reports by default when they are launched. This can be achieved by setting the configuration variable "AutoEnableIV" to true defined in file "[Install Dir]\iServer\servletcontainer\iportal\WEB-INF\iv_config.xml". This configuration variable is defined for each role and so you will find multiple matching entries . Choose the role for which you want to apply this setting. Role "All" would enable this for all the users. This change requires a restart of BIRT iServer.
If you just want a specific report to open with IV enabled, and don't want to use the global approach described above, then you can add the following code to the individual report design in onContentUpdate handler method:

To view BIRT content on mobile, all you have to do is to install these apps and add subscription to your existing BIRT reports or reportlet (part of the BIRT report) in BIRT iServer as you see in this video. This will make your BIRT content available on the mobile device without requiring you to tweak the original BIRT design for mobile layout. While subscribing to BIRT content, you can also define report parameters if any and choose default settings for portrait or landscape form. The mobile viewer lets you browse most recent version of all available subscriptions, change report parameters and supports standard "pinch and zoom" controls.
You can download free evaluation copy of BIRT iServer here. BIRT Mobile apps are free and can be downloaded from iTunes and Andorid marketplace.

The setup utility quickly uploads the necessary files to your on-premise BIRT iServer and you can start working with it right after. Here is a short video that goes over installation and gives a glimpse of what you can expect to see after you set it up.
These dashboards and gadgets are driven by a sample BIRT data object as a data source that could easily be replaced with your own data objects. This can be done by editing datadesign files to provide your SFDC credentials and making necessary SQL modifications to adapt the data set to your SFDC data model. These datadesign files can then be scheduled to generate BIRT Objects at regular intervals within your BIRT iServer environment. The datadesign files and reports can be edited using BIRT Designer Pro, which supports all the features of open source Eclipse BIRT Designer and is compatible with reports developed with it. You can download and install free evaluation copies of BIRT Designer Pro and BIRT iServer from here.

Actuate BIRT Viewer solves this issue by pushing down data operations to the database layer and starts rendering the report pages while is data is still being fetched. This feature is called Progressive Viewing and allows you to view first and consecutive pages while the report is still being rendered as opposed to waiting for all pages to be generated before a page can be viewed. In the latest release (11 sp2) this feature has been enhanced to decrease response time even further by allowing report design to specify if the data is already sorted. (See Video)
A value of false means that BIRT engine will use the sort order of the incoming data and will not attempt to re-sort based on the group keys defined for the table. This helps minimize data processing and results in faster report generation.
The enhanced Progressive Viewing feature works with all out-of-box Actuate BIRT data source types as well as custom data source types based on the ODA (Open Data Framework)
Download your free evaluation version of BIRT iServer and give it a try.
