Hi everyone,

I have been learning to create pdf report with Apex 4.2 and BI Publisher 10 which I have been successful with. Now I like to learn how to create pdf reports using FOP thinking of the customers who will not spend money on BI Publisher. I have gone through the documents and procedures described in Java 4 Less. http://www.java4less.com/apache/fop.php and http://www.java4less.com/fopdesigner/fodesigner.php?info=apex. Configured Apex instance setting accordingly.

For default layout a tabular pdf report is created. I have created an xsl-fo file named Formatted_report.fo on same query and xml file from report query with Oracle BI Desktop. But when I try to print a formatted output with Formatted_report.fo report layout it does not work(J4LFOPServer ). but same layout with .rtf template works fine (BI Publisher Print Server).

Please help

I don't know about your choice, but - when I tested the same (i.e. running a free report), I used iReport and Dietmar Aust's Jasper Reports Integration. Everything worked just fine.

Thanks for the Links, I will try them. Meanwhile I like to know why J4LFOPServer is not working as they said in their website. If possible please share experience of successful pdf report printing in Apex with J4LFOPServer

As I said, I have no idea; I never used that product. However, at the bottom of the page is a note for you, sayingQuote:

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions about the usage of J4L FO Designer in Oracle Application Express.

So, did you contact them?
