Key Features

  • Request Queue: Handles report requests by entering them into a job queue, and when a server becomes available the next job in the queue is run. The solution automatically increases the number of available servers to match demand until the maximum is reached to reduce query times. 
  • Mod_Logic Module: Redirects requests from servlets or JSPs to the Oracle Weblogic server for a faster, easy to use UI using Javascript. 
  • Report Bursting: Allows users to generate, publish and distribute reports to pre-defined subgroups such as regions or departments. This keeps data accessible only to those who need to see it and reduces repetitive menial tasks. 
  • Custom Tag Handler: Processes custom tags provided by the JSP file identified by the prefix rw. Users can also create custom tags. 
  • Report Caching: Stores report output so it can automatically reuse it for similar requests, saving users time. 
  • Pluggable Data Sources: The system can pull data from numerous sources via Java APIs. This allows developers to utilize aggregation, summarization, scheduling and formatting on data both within the data warehouse and at its original source. 
  • Integrations: Integrates with standard web environments, Java, JSPs and Web Services. This allows users to run reports on a range of platforms through a web browser using URL syntax.
