I have finally found a home for the bookbinding samples I have put together in support of my white paper on Bookbinding.
OTN has a great newish sample code site where you can create code samples to share with the community. In their own words: Welcome to the Oracle Sample Code public repository, where Oracle Technology Network members collaboratively build and share sample applications, code snippets, skins and templates, and more.
Note the word 'templates' I read that as an open invitation to share your latest and greatest!
If you have template samples or code snippets that you think would benefit the wider BIP community please create new code samples and let me know the link and I'll ensure they get promotion through the blog.
You just need an OTN account to get started. Scroll down for the BI Publisher entry.
I'll be pushing some more samples and snippets in the near future, its a great centrally managed repository. Finally, Oracle has somewhere to get code and files hosted.
The two samples I have created cover the book binding function from a couple of angles:
- Oracle BI Publisher Bookbinding Examples - this walks you through a series of examples that show you how to create the bookbinding control files to generate the final bound document.
- Oracle BI Publisher Bookbinding Demonstration - this is a sample J2EE application that demonstrates how to create an HTML/servlet combination to allow users to make sub document selections and then the document features e.g. TOC, page numbering, cross links, etc you would like added to the final document
I'd be very interested in any feedback. Happy Binding!
