I blogged about this some time ago...
You need to deploy the fop.war file that is included with APEX into a Java application server, for example OC4J or GlassFish.
thanks for your response. I saw your post but I'm not sure what Glassfish version do we have installed, how can I know what version we are using?.
You can use the command "asadmin version" to display the version of GlassFish. I believe my post should work with all 3.x versions of GlassFish...
$ /u01/app/glassfish/bin>./asadmin version
Version = GlassFish Server Open Source Edition 188.8.131.52 (build 5)
Command version executed successfully.
So... it seems that we don't have Glassfish installed (the client was the one installing APEX so I don't know for sure what they installed). Is it still possible to install FOP?
if its possible for you to use something else but FOP, you could also try this http://sourceforge.net/projects/pljrxml2pdf/ , you can also try it at apex.oracle.com here http://apex.oracle.com/pls/apex/f?p=13767
Hope this helps,
thanks, but I'd rather use something from a "reliable" source; don't get me wrong, but I can't install something in the client's servers that I don't know where it comes from...
Thanks anyway :)
Well, you need some kind of Java application server to deploy FOP to. This can be GlassFish, Tomcat, OC4J, ... Can't you upgrade the APEX Listener to version 2? Apparently, PDF printing is included, but I still have to test that out...1 person found this helpful
Thanks Matthias, I will check with the client and see the best option, maybe upgrade to listener 2.0.
It works fine for me. Upgrade your listener to 2.0 would also be my advice.
could you confirm that FOP is included in listener 2?
thanks for your advice :)
It is. I generated a PDF report from one of my apps before I posted a reply. My set up has APEX Listener 2.0 and APEX 184.108.40.206 person found this helpful
