Course Description

This course instructs students on those features that are unique to Actuate BIRT Report Designer Professional. This product has the same code base as open source BIRT so it provides the same core features and benefits as the open source version plus newly developed functionality such as using Flash in your reports.

Students learn to add interactive charts to reports using Flash Chart. Using Flash Gadgets, students learn techniques for adding flair to reports typically seen on web dashboards. Students learn how to enhance the presentation of their own data using BIRT Flash Objects from an Actuate library, or using any Flash file. Students learn how to use Actuate Page Level Security, which controls user access to a report on a page-by-page basis in Actuate iServer. Students practice publishing a variety of reports and their associated resources to the iServer Encyclopedia.

This highly interactive, instructor-led class provides many opportunities for students to ask questions, explore new areas, and receive help from the instructor as they work through the exercises.

Each student receives a workbook, which contains the exercises students complete in class. Students receive the product book, Using Actuate BIRT.
