BIRT Flex Output Emitter
Posted 04 February 2010 - 02:46 AM
I have tried the BIRT Flex Output Emitter downloaded from the marketplace under Linux with the OSS BIRT and have found 2 problems:
1) the tool has hard-coded windows slashes:
WARNING: Cannot run program "/home/martin/birt/flash/flex/\bin\mxmlc.exe": java.io.IOException: error=2, No such file or directory
2) the output is not well formed and does not translate or validate:
$ xmllint mxml_20100131152148.mxml
mxml_20100131152148.mxml:105: parser error : Opening and ending tag mismatch: Grid line 33 and GridItem
Is there a newer (fixed) version or source code somewhere available to play with? Or do you have better experience with the emitter under similar circumstances?
Thanks and regards,

Thanks for reviewing the Flex Output Emitter.
We had restricted the testing environment to Windows only. I will see if i can make it to run in a Linux environment. Meanwhile, were you able to run the sample reports in a Windows environment?
On the second issue of report not getting translated, were you trying one of the sample reports or your own report?
I will try to answer your queries as much as possible.

I did not test the plugin on windows, I tested only Linux and given the error (wrong type of slashes) I do not expect the problem to occur on windows.
Fix should be fairly simple: use File.pathSeparator instead of hard coded windows shash "\".
The second problem occured when testing my own report.
