Creating new items for a data object
The procedures for creating data sources, data sets, cubes, and report parameters for a data object are the same as the procedures for creating these items for a report. Use Data Explorer to create, edit, and delete data items in a data object. Figure 3-2 shows a data object that contains one data source, two data sets, and two cubes.

In this data object example, the Corporate_db data source connects to a corporate database. The ds_Revenue and ds_Expenses data sets retrieve data from the database. The Revenue and Expenses cubes use data from the ds_Revenue and ds_Expenses data sets, respectively. For information about creating data sources, data sets, and cubes, see BIRT: A Field Guide.
