We are building a standalone desktop application that will not have an application server. It will connect to a local database through ODBC. Can we use BIRT reporting? I only see J2EE mentioned on the BIRT site, we are not using J2EE and the discussion area of the BIRT site seems to no longer exist. Other projects here use BIRT in an application server environment so we would like to leverage existing talent to use BIRT in this application as well.

I looked at the link you quoted and it didn't say anything about J2EE being a prerequisite. Against "deployment" it said "Java/J2EE" which seems to me to mean you can use it on an ordiarny Java installation. I think you will have to try and see whether it works. Good luck with it
