There may be multiple cause for the problem
1. Eclipse Version which is dependent on your BIRT designer version .
2. The is a version mismatch of the birt designer, that you used previously to code the files and to the current version that is installed.
3. Birt runtime version that you are using could have changed.

Please provide more details on your setup.

I guess Myclipse blue doesn't support BIRT 2.2. Please check the version compatability. Birt2.2 is  supported by older version of eclipse i guess.


so how should i update the viewer version?
please guide
There are 2 options.
1. Birt 2.2 needs eclipse version 3.3.
Birt Version 2.2
 So you need to have lower version of eclipse to work with BIRT 2.2 designer and a runtime compatable with the server. Try using a lower version of eclipse.

If this is not doable then the option 2 is to go with the BIRT version that comes with MyEclipse Blue. I guess the latest Myeclipse Blue come with BIRT version 2.3.1

MyEclipse Birt
If you have installed BIRT 2.2 on Myeclipse Blue then you need to remove / disable the feature / plugin in myeclipse.
