About BIRT data sources

To access data for a BIRT report, you use a BIRT data source. A BIRT data source is an object that contains the information to connect to the database, text file, XML file, or web service. When you create a report, you use Data Explorer, as shown in Figure 2‑1, to create and manage BIRT data sources.

Figure 2-1 Data source in the data explorer

You can create as many data sources as necessary for a report. The data sources can be of different types. For example, a report can use data from a database and data from a flat file repository.
