You can expose Discoverer worksheets for use in third-party client applications, using Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer Web Services API (Application Programming Interface). A third-party client application can use the Discoverer Web Services API to programmatically obtain Discoverer connections, workbooks, and worksheets; to execute worksheet queries; and to display worksheet content.
You can convert Discoverer metadata into a format that can be used in Oracle BI EE by running the metadata conversion assistant tool. The metadata conversion assistant tool is a command line utility that accelerates the migration of Discoverer metadata from the End User Layer (EUL) to Oracle BI EE. The command line utility takes a Discoverer EEX export file and generates an RPD file that can be used in Oracle BI EE. Note that this RPD file is compatible with Oracle BI EE 10g, but you can use the Oracle BI EE Upgrade Assistant to upgrade this RPD file for use with Oracle BI EE 11g.
You can find the metadata conversion assistant (MigrateEUL.exe) in the following location:
You can find documentation that describes how to use the metadata conversion assistant in the following location:
Note: This utility migrates only Discoverer metadata and only for relational data sources.
