APEXblog.nl - Tips and Tricks

About This Blog:
I (Richard Weug) started this blog primary for myself to save all kinds of Apex tips and tricks in one place. To use it as a place to write down how I used some coding in my own projects, but also to copy and paste all kinds of articles I find on the Internet. (So I never have to wonder on what website did I read about??? When I see something interesting I collect the content so I have my own archive/knowlegde base.

The main purpose is to provide a cost free alternative for high-fidelity printing / PDF generation with Oracle APEX. For doing so, I have built an integration kit to easily run Jasper Reports reports from within your Oracle APEX application.

The Jasper Reports Integration is based on the presentation I have already blogged about. In this presentation you will find the details about the architecture and the integration.
