Course Description

Distance Learning is the web-based delivery vehicle for Actuate technical training.
In our Distance Learning classes, students remotely attend our regional classes. Distance Learning students will see and hear the instructor's presentations, participate in class discussions and can share their desktops with the instructor when needed. Students receive the course materials and instructions on how to join the web session the week before the class start date.

This course covers using the JavaScript API to enhance web pages and BIRT reports. In a hands-on lab environment, students load BIRT design files into different viewers in a web page, incorporate specific data from a report into user interface elements, and generate dynamic scripted report content using BIRT Designer Professional.

Students work with some of the underlying technologies that an Actuate iServer web application uses, including HTTP, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. This course also describes tasks related to the BIRT Designer Professional tools and interface. Each student receives a comprehensive course manual, which functions both as a workbook during class, and as a detailed reference guide once the class is completed.
