Integration with Oracle AS Discoverer

Oracle Reports is fully integrated with the Oracle Application Server and the Oracle database. This integration enables you to take full advantage of all the features these products have to offer, such as OracleAS Discoverer.

You can now use OracleAS Discoverer Plus and Viewer to export Discoverer worksheets to XML, which can then be opened in Oracle Reports Developer. This export contains the query as well as all the formatting necessary to create a paper report (including conditional formatting). You can now take this exported report into Oracle Reports and take advantage of all the product's features to perform such tasks as producing a PDF, adding more queries, and creating a more complex layout for paper or the Web.

You can also take advantage of the other products included in Oracle Application Server, such as OracleAS Portal, Oracle Enterprise Manager, Oracle Internet Directory, and Oracle Forms. For example, you can set up OracleAS Reports Services with OracleAS Portal and Oracle Internet Directory to enable single sign-on (SSO). With SSO, a user only has to log in once and can use all products using the same login ID and password.
