BIRT, KNIME and TOMCAT

Before I begin, let me say that I am well aware that the KNIME server would solve my problem, but there is no way I can afford it, and it also contains far more functionality then I need.  So, my hope is that I can get some hints here.

I want to be able to publish a knime birt report online with the birt webviewer using tomcat.  I am able to remotely access a birt rptdesign file placed in the tomcat webapps folder, but of course I get missing dependency issues when I put a knime rptdesign file in the same directory.  I have tried many different things to publish a knime birt report through the birt webviewer, and I have failed many different times.  Any sort of hint would be so, so very, greatly appreciated.

And, again, I would definitely pay for the server if it was resonably within my budget - that is, I would gladly support a product like knime for added functionality since knime is awesome - but the knime server is not even close to affordable for me.
