Hi all,
I want to generate reports using oracle database server.
Reqirement:
After a table update in Ora(event) a report should be generated.Currently a third party tool is being used to do so. I want to remove the 3rd party tool and exploit oracle for the same.
1) Please let me know how to do that?
2) Can i call some java program on the update? (considering no java, web connection)
I tried with the spool in sql. But i was thinking to get a better report.
I read oracle reports, but i think that is part of Oracle app server (not a part of ora database server.Please correct if wrong.
Please excuse my limited knowledge on the subject.

Roshani,
You are correct that Oracle App server is required for Oracle reports.

Can you elaborate on what the third party tool did? In particular, what kind of formatting did it do. This will help with recommendations on an equivalent.

Hi Jeanne,
Thanks for the reply. I was using the QTP (tool for testing). It was acting as an interface and just generating reports. The point is that we are not utilizing any property of the QTP tool which is not justified.
I am not really concerned about the report formatting, as all i want is the data.
Thanks for your answer..

Roshani,
The easiest way to get data is to just to a SQL query.

If you want formatted data, you need to use a tool or computer program. Since this part isn't Oracle specific, I think you may get a more detailed answer if you post in the JDBC forum up top.
