MAXIMO BIRT Report Generator

If you guys want to easily develop some BIRT reports, then this plugin is for you.  This tool/utility has been brought to my attention by Christian (Thanks!) and it looks very promising!  Here is a brief description of the plugin:

Code generator for IBM Maximo Report Developer

MAYR-MELNHOF Karton Gesellschaft mbH and CoSMIT GmbH jointly developed a code generator as Eclipse plugin. This generator substantially accelerates the generation of BIRT reports for IBM-Maximo. The dataset for a report can be generated automatically with a wizard featured in the plugin.

Below you will find a brief description of the code generator’s function: After starting the wizard, the report name and a template are stated in the input mask. Afterwards, the query can be generated in the graphic SQL editor. Now the generator automatically generates the open & fetch methods as well as the output columns of the dataset.

You can download the code generator free of charge. The plugin is open source. Support is available from the CoSMIT team via the specially set up Maximo forum.

The link to the download can be found here.  Download it and thank Christian for making all of our lives easier!

BTW @Christian, do you guys have a Maximo forum in English?

  1. Chon, thanks a lot!!!!!

    Up to now we do not have a Forum in English but if there are some questions, bug-reports;-),new ideas for new features,… just post it here or in this MAXIMO BIRT Reporting Forum! We also startet a MAXIMO User Group at Xing (https://www.xing.com/net/maximousergroup) to share information about MAXIMO, however up to now this Xing Group is also in German, but maybe in the near future we change to english…

  2. Hi Christian,

    Where do I place the src folder?

    After following your steps to install the ReportGenerator, and when openning a new MAXIMO REPORT, I encountered the following
    “bad version number in .class file” error.

    Please advice…

    Thanks in advance

  3. Hi Chon and Christian,

    I’ve installed the ReportGenerator but also have the “bad version number in .class file” error when i try to open a new MAXIMO REPORT.

    thank you for your help!

  4. Hi! Please try to start BIRT Report Designer with Java-Version 6.

    Try following command:
    [birt]eclipse.exe -vm D:Javajdkbinjavaw.exe

  5. Thanks for this, but this error is showing when I run the report from BIRT.

    org.eclipse.birt.report.engine.api.EngineException: There are errors evaluating script “MXReportScriptContext.get().getUserDate()”: TypeError: Cannot find function getUserDate. (#1).

  6. Sorry its working fine now without any error, but if I want to edit the query after a while can I open the query editor again

  7. Any BIRT report I create and run gets the following error:

    ReportDesign (id = 1): There are errors evaluating script “MXReportScriptContext.get().getUserDate()”

    I have Java Version SDK 1.6 and I have tried several installations of Eclipse and BIRT all ending with the same result.

  8. Hi guys.. I’m still using Maximo 4i & is there any possibilities i can used this BIRT Report Generator to generate reports? If not, is there any other suggestion or other tools that i can used? Appreciate your help. TQ
