BIRT and Rational Team Concert

Creating custom reports with BIRT and Rational Team Concert: Part 1. Basic reports

IBM Rational Team Concert can help software development teams store and organize an enormous amount of information, including work plans and tasks, builds and tests, and source code and other files. This article demonstrates how to visualize that information with custom reports by using Rational Team Concert with Eclipse Business Information and Reporting Tools (BIRT).

Creating custom reports with BIRT and Rational Team Concert: Part 2. Complex reports and nested data sets

This three-part series of articles explains how you can visualize information in IBM Rational Team Concert by designing reports with Eclipse Business Information and Reporting Tools (BIRT). This article, the second in the series, shows how to perform advanced logic on information from the repository.

Creating custom reports with BIRT and Rational Team Concert: Part 3. Advanced reporting techniques

This article demonstrates how to visualize that information with custom reports by using Rational Team Concert with Eclipse Business Information and Reporting Tools (BIRT). It builds on the previous two parts of this series to show how to retrieve complex information from the repository.

Creating customizable reports for data processing using Rational Team Concert and BIRT: Part 1. Introducing BIRT and algorithms

By using the Rational Team Concert solution, you can get many useful information and status updates, but for some special information, you must implement a special logic to get it. For example, how about obtaining the status for epics, stories, or even tasks, including their sub-tasks among different sprints? If they are not on schedule, how much time will they exceed or save? In order to get such reports, you need to extract the data of the repository, plug additional logic into Rational Team Concert to process the raw data, and then customize the report to display the result. In this article, you'll see how you can inject logic to customize those reports, using Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools (BIRT) to show whether a Rational Team Concert work item exceeds the planned effort. If you want to customize the report with the data or status updates calculated with special algorithms, you will also benefit from this information.

Creating customizable reports for data processing using Rational Team Concert and BIRT: Part 2. Creating data sources and data sets for reporting

In this article, you'll see how you can leverage a new method to customize reports using Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools (BIRT). In addition, Team Concert users who want to customize the report with the data/status updates -- calculated with special algorithm -- will also derive benefit from the information presented.
