For everyone using the printing features of Application Express, or whoever is struggling with the BI Publisher or Apache FOP configuration, you might be interested in the BIWA SIG Summit 08, taking place at Oracle’s World HQ December 2nd and 3rd. There are a number of presentations scheduled covering BI Publisher, and I’ll be doing a presentation there on advanced printing in Application Express. I’m going to cover the integration of APEX with BI Publisher, and also the configuration of APEX using Apache FOP for printing. Furthermore I’ll demonstrate how to use Web Services in APEX to call out to BI Publisher directly, to initiate and schedule the generation of reports. I’ll also go through some actual samples on how to use the PL/SQL print API to store reports inside the database and how to email them out to lists of recipients.
