As I’ve previously blogged about and outlined in my video tutorials, it is now possible to create custom PDF reports with APEX 4.2.2 using the APEX Listener 2.0.2 and third-party tools like Altova Stylevision or Stylus Studio. To help our customers getting started with this, we’ve just released a white paper that outlines the system requirements, explains the configuration steps and options and then walks you through the creation of PDF reports using custom layouts step by step. The white paper is available on out Oracle Application Express OTN page:

The New York Oracle User Group Summer Meeting takes place on June 5th at St. John's University, right next to the World Trade Center in Downtown Manhattan. This looks like it’s going to be a very interesting meeting for Oracle DBAs and Oracle Developers. There are two session scheduled covering the Oracle Database 12c and also two APEX sessions. There’s going to be a session on building mobile apps with APEX, which looks to be very hands-on. And I’ll be showing how to build custom PDF reports with APEX. I’ll walk you step by step through creating the report in APEX, downloading the XML, creating a report layout with tools like Stylevision, loading the layout back into APEX and associating the layout with your report. If you have a laptop running APEX 4.2.2 and the APEX Listener 2.0.2, you’re welcome to bring it and follow along – you will need at least a trial version of either Altova Stylevision or Stylus Studio.
