Purpose

Here is a Java Bean from Casey Bowden to get the status of a long report and to cancel it if needed.

Report Monitor

 

ReportMonitor detail

I. Problem One: Report Status


When running Oracle Forms and Reports in client/server, users knew the status of the report they were running. After converting to the web version of Oracle Forms and Reports users are get a locked screen and do not know the status of the report. This is usually an issue with longer running reports.

Solution: I created a ReportMonitor JavaBean that launches a separate applet, from the current forms session, to update the user on the status of the report. The applet will close when the report is finished or encounters an error.

  

II. Problem Two: Cancel Report

When running Oracle Forms and Reports in client/server, users could cancel a report. After converting to the web version of Oracle Forms and Reports users are get a locked screen. If the user wants to run another report without waiting for the current report to finish, I have found that users close the browser and start another session.

Solution: I created a ReportMonitor JavaBean that launches a separate applet, from the current forms session, that has a "Cancel Report" button so users can cancel the report and continue with what they were doing.

Read carrefully the Installation.rtf file that explains step by step how to configure the tool that needs external JAR files to run.
