BIRT example one: IXIASOFT CCMS data set definition

The next step is to define the data set.

After you have created your basic TEXTML query, you define the data set you want to extract. This is done in the Data Set Definition dialog. This is where you define the values you want to extract from the indexes of the TEXTML Server, and the operations you want to perform on each set of values.

You’ll see the Data Set Definition dialog for the first time when you launch it from a personal TEXTML query. You can go back later and modify the data set definition directly.

In the image below you can see the columns that we have selected for this data set and the operations we’re going to perform on each.
  • Column one – returns how many documents of each type are in the repository, and groups them by type.
  • Column two – calculates the average size of each type of document.
  • Column three – calculates the maximum size for each type.
  • Column four – calculates the minimum size.
At the top of the dialog, you can see that we’re going to use this data set definition to produce a file called Aut_size_v3.tsv. This file will be our data source.
