Error description

  • The following Technote is referring to scripts to deploy BIRT
    (Business Intelligence REporting Tool)
    runtime, but no link or description about these scripts:
    
    http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21566463
    
    The above technote is missing reference to deployment script:
    ex.  deployBIRT.bat script which I found located under
    <CQ_HOME>\reports\launcher\birt
    There is no documentation available about using this script.
    
    In the technote, the Answer section...
    "Beginning with versions 8.0.0.9 and 8.0.1.2, ClearQuest
    includes scripts to assist with the deployment and configuration
    of the BIRT runtime."
    
    The script attached to TN: copyDriverPlugins.bat is used to
    configure the BIRT Server runtime with the IBM Rational
    ClearQuest (CQ) Reporting Driver prior to v. 8.0.0.9 and
    8.0.1.2;
    "copy the following required ClearQuest Reporting JAR files to
    the BIRT server runtime environment For ClearQuest versions
    prior to 8.0.0.9 and 8.0.1.2"
    
    Where is the script to deploy BIRT runtime For ClearQuest
    versions 8.0.0.9 or higher and 8.0.1.2 or higher?
    If you check on versions prior to 8.0.0.9 and 8.0.1.2, you will
    not find the deployBIRT.bat script,  it is only available with
    8.0.0.9 or higher and 8.0.1.2 or higher.
