I am new to Sentinel 7 and I happen to be managing a Sentinel 7 server for testing purposes.
I know that Sentinel 7 uses iReport for its reporting via Lucene queries from special files stored in Sentinel, and event meta data is stored in the Postgresql database... (http://www.novell.com/developer/plugin-sdk/reports.html)
Now my question is, how do I retrieve Sentinel events using an external reporting program (BIRT), not iReport, to compile custom reports?
So far I could only use BIRT to connect to Sentinel's Postgresql database which stores the event meta data, which I really have no knowledge of its tables and relations.
Can somebody help me?
