We have a consultant here who is setting up Oracle report server for us. I was wondering how I can determine what the URL is to use to submit a report?

Thanks - Sal

It depends on App Server version and OS. I am using Oracle App Server on Linux AS 4. I will give a description to execute a report using a browser to execute a report saved in a jsp format and to output the report to the browser in an html format. The description will be in a written form for you to understand what info needs to be entered according to your environment. Then I will show an actual examples.

http://"servername or ip"/"http server listening port"/reports/rwservlet/?SERVER="name listed for server variable in rwservlet.properties file"&REPORT="path to directory where reports resides on server"/reportname&USERID="database schema where data for report resides"/password@database&DESFORMAT=html&DESTYPE=cache

The default http server listening port for Linux or Unix is 7777 and 80 for Windows. It can be changed at time of installation to a different port.

Linux Example:

http://reportsserver.yourcompany.com:7777/SERVER=rep_reportserver_bif&REPORT=/home/oracle/reports/samplereport.jsp&test/test1 23@test&DESFORMAT=html&DESTYPE=cache

Windows Example:

http://reportsserver.yourcompany.com:80/SERVER=rep_reportserver_bif&REPORT=\home\oracle\reports\samplereport.jsp&test/test123 @test&DESFORMAT=html&DESTYPE=cache

Hope this helps!

Another suggestion: usually, in the install directory there remains a readme.txt, this also contains the URL's.

Can someone let me know as to what the maximum length of the URL string that could be formed? I believe in IE browser a maximum of 64,000 characters can only be formed. If I need to pass many parameters and the length of the values passed exceeds the default length in IE, the rest of the values will not be captured in the report server.

Please let me know on how to proceed with this problem.
