This chapter describes two features of BI Publisher that were introduced in Release 10.1.3.3.2 and apply to Releases 10.1.3.3.2 through 10.1.3.4. Information about these features is also provided in the BI Publisher documentation set that has been updated for Release 10.1.3.4. This chapter contains the following sections:
In Release 10.1.3.3.2, BI Publisher introduces document caching. Document caching is enabled at the report level. With document cache enabled, when a user views the report online, the document (data plus layout) is placed in cache. When the same user uses the online Report Viewer to view the exact same report (same layout, same output type, same parameter selections) the document is retrieved from the cache. The document remains in the cache according to the cache specifications set in BI Publisher's System Maintenance page. Note that scheduled reports do not use the document cache.
To enable the document cache for a report, navigate to the report and select the Edit link. On the Report Editor page, view the Report Properties. Under General Settings, select Enable Document Cache.
For information on setting the cache specifications, see Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher Report Designer's Guide.
Release 10.1.3.3.2 of BI Publisher introduces the following changes to the report output types available:
MHTML - (Mime HyperText Markup Language) this format enables you to save a Web page and its resources as a single MHTML file (.mht), in which all images and linked files are saved as a single entity. Use this option to send or save HTML output and retain the embedded images and style sheet formatting.
Excel2000 - choose this output type if you have Microsoft Excel 2000 or 2002. Note that although Excel2000 is a new choice, it is actually the Excel option that was available in previous releases. This option generates HTML that can be opened in Excel. It does not support embedded images.
Excel - choose this output type if you have Microsoft Excel 2003 or later installed. This option generates an MHTML format file that can be opened in Excel 2003 or later. This option supports embedded images, such as charts and logos.
