Design Patterns and Guidelines for OBIEE 10g-Based Web Applications
Design patterns and guidelines describe common flows or page designs that are used across all product families. They are built according to common requirements using industry best practices and tested for usability. A set of best practices and patterns have been defined around the capabilities of OBIEE, which in turn will help application developers bring compelling and consistent experiences to business intelligence, or BI, applications.
Note: Design patterns do not address every possible interaction needed by a product; the design patterns address only those interactions that appear frequently across all product families.
How should you use patterns and guidelines?

To best use design patterns and guidelines during the conception and development phase of a product, follow this process:

  • Identify business goals
  • Determine usage
  • Identify key user tasks
  • Understand the patterns
  • View OBIEE examples
  • Define your layouts
  • Using OBIEE 10g
  • Customize components
  • Apply best practices
