An Oracle blog about BI Publisher

Oracle Report Migration

I have had a coupe of mails asking where I am? Im here, I took a week away from writing for the blog - needed a rest and some time to think about a bigger, paper based project :0)

I put together a viewlet last week for a colleague on how the Oracle Reports migration library can be used - its now residing in the demo catalog here or you can access it directly here.

I used a fairly simple Oracle Report but I think it covers the 'can' and 'can't' of the migrator. I'll say right here, its not magic, it will not transform all of your report pixel for pixel, format trigger for format trigger but it gets you a long way down the road.

For the BIP uninitiated I also put together a Oracle Reports to BI Publisher presentation that you might find useful. You can get that here.

Would be interested in feedback on the tool - there is a more 'souped up' version in the works that will turn your report to tomato or chicken noodle!
