<h2 class="topic-section-header padding-top-small">Concepts</h2>
<p>The <a href="/birt/phoenix/ref/rom/index.html" target="_blank">ROM documentation</a> is available in new "RomDoc" format complete with indexes, cross references, information taken directly from implementation, and so on. This version is an early draft. Note the following caveats:
<ul class="eclipse-list">
<li>Documentation is not yet done for the Style element and its properites.</li><br />
<li>Some elements have no documenation at all.</li><br />
<li>Some elements are not in Release 1. These show up in the index, but are not yet flagged as "reserved."</li><br />
<li>Some of the wording needs correction and improvement.</li><br />
<li>Overview text from the ROM specs are not yet incorporated. Refer to the ROM Specs below for this overview material.</li>
</ul>
</p>
<p>Key features include:
<ul class="eclipse-list">
<li>A "Since" field indicates if the element or property is in Release 1.0, or is "reserved" for a future release.</li><br />
<li>Alphabetical index of structures and elements.</li><br />
<li>Lots of details such as data types, XML names, choice details, JavaScript types, etc.</li><br />
<li>Auto-generated from the implementation: prevents the specs from being out of sync with respect to the code.</li>
</ul>
</p>
<h2 class="topic-section-header padding-top-small">Report Object Model Specification Suite</h2>
<p>The Report Object Model (ROM) is the report design format that the ERD creates and the ERE executes. The following suite of documents provides a full description of the model. Note: these are the original design specs, and are now somewhat out of date with respect to the implementation. See the above "RomDocs" for the most recent details.
