Preface

Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher (BI Publisher) is a comprehensive set of enterprise reporting tools and infrastructure, including a scalable and efficient query and data generation engine, enterprise reporting document generation, interactive report consumption, and scheduled report execution and delivery. Oracle BI Publisher is designed to author, generate, and deliver all the operational documents you need to run your organization and provide greater insight to a wide variety of users.

Oracle BI Publisher provides a common service-oriented architecture (SOA) and Java APIs for data access and generation, document generation and delivery, a security model and user preferences, and Web-based administration. Oracle BI Publisher provides scalability and performance with a multi-tier architecture that separates data generation from report generation and rendering. Oracle BI Publisher also provides sophisticated data and document caching services, and can be clustered for high availability or scaled out to support high volume requirements.

This guide contains information about developing custom applications through the Web services and Java APIs that Oracle BI Publisher provides for data access, document generation, and delivery.

Audience

This guide is intended for developers who want to use the Oracle BI Publisher Web services and Java APIs to develop custom applications.
