About BIRT Studio and Actuate Information Console
BIRT Studio is a licensed option of Actuate BIRT iHub. A user accesses BIRT Studio from Actuate Information Console, a web-based application that provides reporting services. Actuate Information Console supports accessing, running, and viewing reports through the user interface part of BIRT Studio, which installs with the Information Console. iHub modifies and generates BIRT Studio reports.
Figure 12-1 illustrates how Information Console and iHub communicate in fulfilling BIRT Studio requests. BIRT Studio is implemented as an AJAX client application, residing on the Information Console. BIRT Studio connects to Information Console and iHub through two servlets, ERNIViewerServlet and ERNIServerServlet, using HTTP and SOAP protocols.
