18.10 Running Reports Using Oracle BPEL Process Manager

Oracle Reports is integrated with the Oracle Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) suite, which includes Oracle BPEL Process Manager to automate and monitor reporting requirements.

You can submit Oracle Reports jobs from the Oracle BPEL Process Manager business process, get the status of report execution, and also invoke an Oracle BPEL Process Manager business process from your reports. This makes it easy to include reporting requirements in the business process; for example, submit a report request when an order gets approved.

See Section 7.10, "Configuring Oracle Reports to Communicate with Oracle BPEL Process Manager", and also Developing SOA Applications with Oracle SOA Suite.
