I am using the set up Tomcat and Cocoon as a FOP server. I have set up APEX to point to the FOP server. The using the "Generic Report Layout" that APEX creates or using copies of Generic Report Layout, reports are produced just fine.

I also have obtained the FODesigner tool written by Java4Less.

I am having problems designing and writing my own reports using FODesigner and APEX. The steps and problems are as follows:

1) I write a query in APEX.
Home>Application Builder>Application 502>Shared Components>Report Queries>Edit Report Query.
select * from gender_type

2) Export the XML and XML Schema from APEX.

3) Open the XML and XML Schema in the FODesigner tool

4) Create a report format in FODesigner.

5) Export the xsl-fo file from FODesigner.

6) Import the xsl-fo into APEX.

7) Test Report in APEX.

8) When I open the PDF or RTF file I get the following message:

I have tried producing various different reports and they all get this messages.

What is this trying to tell me?
Which file has the problem?
The XML datafile, XML schema file or the XSL-FO layout file?
What exactly is the problem?
What does XML "document structures must start and end within the same entity" mean?

p.s. I had to remove all URL links to post on this site
