Task 2:  Build a data source

Before you begin designing the report in the layout editor, you create a data source to connect the report to the Classic Models database.

Select Classic Models Inc. Sample Database from the list of data sources, use the default data source name, then choose Next. Connection information about the new data source appears.
Choose Finish. BIRT Report Designer creates a new data source that connects to the sample database. The new data source appears within Data Sources in Data Explorer.
