Rwconverter.sh Fails With "Conversion of myreport.rdf canceled" On UNIX, But Compiles Successfully On Windows (Doc ID 1109824.1)

Last updated on JULY 06, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Reports Developer - Version 11.1.1.1.0 and later
Generic UNIX
Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit)
Reports 11g
***Checked for relevance on 06-July-2016***

Symptoms

A report compiles fine on Windows 32-bit, but when the RDF file is moved to Linux/UNIX system, and compiled using rwconverter.sh, it fails with a "canceled" message. For example:

ERROR
Conversion of my_report.rdf canceled

This problem does not happen with all reports.

STEPS
The issue can be reproduced consistently with the following steps:
1. Using Reports Builder 11g on Windows 32-bit platform, you can successfully compile and run    the RDF report file.
2. FTP the RDF file to a Linux/UNIX box.
3. Compile the RDF file using rwconverter.sh. Sample syntax:

$ rwconverter.sh userid=user/password@db source=my_report.rdf stype=rdffile dtype=repfile overwrite=yes batch=yes logfile=log.txt


4. This gives error:
Report Builder: Release 11.1.1.2.0 - Production on Fri May 28 14:54:30 2010

Copyright (c) 1982, 2009, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.

Converting my_report.rdf to my_report.rep
Conversion of my_report.rdf canceled

If you attempt to compile the RDF using Reports Builder 11g on Linux/UNIX, it gives the PLS-00908 error.

Changes

Moved RDF from Windows 32-bit platform to a Linux/UNIX platform.
