A generator for the generator

22. Januar 2013 , Geschrieben von Andreas Weiden

I'm currently thinking about writing a generator which creates a JRXML-report-definition from either an Oracle Forms-Module or from an APEX-page (I'm not sure at the moment which one i prefer).

The generator would analyze the module/page, transform the queries into datasets in JRXML, transform the fields into report-fields in JRXML, transform tabular data into a table-layout and finally store the JRXML in the PL-JRXML2PDF-report-definition table. As an add-on the code to call that report could also be generated.

At the moment i'm not sure if this a useful feature or just a "gimmick". Any comments are welcome.

Dear Andreas,<br /> <br /> Really this is very good option, please try to improve. This will change the apex programming in next level. Wish you all the best.<br /> <br /> Please provide the download link for the application, we will try with some more options on the same.
<br /> <br /> Dera Senthil,<br /> <br /> <br /> a new version including the genrator is now available for download.<br /> <br /> <br /> Andreas<br /> <br /> <br /> <br />
Hi Andreas,<br /> <br /> it does make sense to me to generate a template file (based on a existing APEX page) as a basis for a PDF report.<br /> <br /> Regards,<br /> <br /> Niels
Hi Andreas,<br /> <br /> this is definitely a great idea. If you want i'd be happy to help.<br /> <br /> As i'm purely APEX based these days, i'd prefer the APEX Version and wouldn't think about Forms... ;-)
