Hi Denis,
If you want to write your own report, not necessary the one for CLM, then your BIRT version must be applicable for Eclipse version you use (in this case it is Eclipse 4.4).

But If you want to write any report for CLM, the situation is a bit different. According to CLM System Requirements Eclipse server (where these reports are run) is based on Eclipse 3.6.2. Therefore you must use Eclipse 3.6.2 with BIRT installed. Here are the steps I usually perform when creating reports:
  1. Download Eclipse for Report Developers from

  2. Install IES patches on top of this eclipse version from

See also this topic: Installing BIRT tools.
Also I have noticed that you want to use CLM 5.0.2 which is not stable version yet. Are you aware of this fact?

Thank you for the answer.
I want to write reports particularly for CLM.
Now I understood the reason for choosing the 3.6.2 birt version, your clarification was exactly what I was trying to get.

Currently our company uses CLM 4.x version, but we are planing to updgrade, so I wanted to know what birt version is supported in the new release. Also we should try new Jazz Reporting Service.
