How do I deploy a BIRT report that uses libraries?

I'm working on a BIRT report and breaking it down and exporting commonly used components to a report library.  The report builds OK in Eclipse as the library is set up as a report resource.  Reports are built into a war file using ANT ready for deployment to Blackboard. 

 

Initially I wasn't including the libraries in the war file so the report wasn't working correctly when uploaded to Blackboard.

 

I've changed the ant script to copy the report libraries under the WEB-INF folder during the build so they are included in the war file but this still hasn't worked.  I've also tried copying to a /resource folder under WEB-INF.

 

The Birt.xml is set as follows:

 

        <list-property name="libraries">           <structure>               <property name="fileName">resources/ReportComponents.rptlibrary</property>              <property name="namespace">ReportComponents</property>           </structure>         </list-property>

 

Is it possible to use report libraries with the Blackboard platform?

 

Thanks

Steve
