Summary

This chapter gave you an overview of the possibilities for printing in Application Express.

There are different choices for implementing reports printing/PDF printing:

  • Apache FOP by using OC4J
  • BI Publisher
  • Or alternatives such as Oracle Reports, Jasper Reports, and Plugins

We started with the two most commonly used architectures in Application Express printing—Apache FOP and BI Publisher. Then we saw how to install and configure both Apache FOP and BI Publisher. After the installation, we discussed how to investigate printing problems.

We also dealt with layout of your report and discussed how to include charts and images.

Finally, we discussed some alternatives that can be used for PDF printing, and also plugins.
