classnotfoundexception – Using Eclipse BIRT Report Designer via PHP

Posted by: admin July 12, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I want to use Birt Reports in an php webproject.
Therefore I installed the recommend Java Bridge and the BIRT Runtime
by moving JavaBridgeTemplate621.war and birt.war to my Tomcat.

After that I wrote a short class calling the BirtEngine:

try {
    $ctx = java_context()->getServletContext();
    $this->birdEngine = java("org.eclipse.birt.php.birtengine.BirtEngine")->getBirtEngine($ctx);
    java_context()->onShutdown(
        java("org.eclipse.birt.php.birtengine.BirtEngine")->getShutdownHook()
    );
} catch (java_InternalException $e) {
    die($e->getMessage());
}

As I recognize that $e->getMessage() returns "" I take a look at the catalina.out and there I found this exception:

Especially this line takes my attention:

java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.eclipse.birt.php.birtengine.BirtEngine

But each try to get help from google and common websites failed.
So I hope someone from this site can help me.

How to&Answers:

I know this is an old question, but I do run BIRT through the PHP java bridge successfully. The PHP code you have is correct. But the way that you are using the WAR files is not.

Basically you one war file with both the PHP/JavaBridge files and BIRT + a special class to load BIRT within the JAVA bridge.

If you still haven’t solved this problem, I might be able to make the WAR file I’m using available.

Answer:

If anyone is still having a problem calling BIRT from php here’s very good tutorial that helped me a lot.
