BI Publisher prepares the report data from the data source: a PS Query, a connected query, or an XML file. Then, BI Publisher uses the PSXP_RPTDEFNMANAGER report definition classes to generate and route the report. Optionally, BI Publisher uses the PSXP_REPORTMGR search classes to search for a report in the reports repository.
