we're looking into using oracle apex to modernize our oracle forms and reports.
reports are build using oracle reports builder. Output of these reports are pdf,csv,xls and text (character mode w/ printer commands).
90% of our printer are dot matrix.
1. is it possible to print report in character mode using oracle apex and how can we achieve this?
2. in what scenario do we need oracle bi publisher based on my understanding apex can generate the report as pdf even without oracle bi publisher?
3. how to print /directly to local (directly attached to user'pc ) /network printer?
4. how to print to zebra printer to print barcode /qrcode?
