Reports Builder 10.1.2


Oracle Reports 10g Release 2 (10.1.2) introduces the Auto Save feature, which recovers unsaved changes in the case of an unexpected event of Reports Builder or system crash. When Auto Save is enabled, Reports Builder can automatically recover unsaved changes in open reports.

When Auto Save is enabled, any modifications done in the reports that are open are saved automatically in temporary recovery files at various events originating from menu, toolbar, tool palette, object navigator, property inspector and other editor windows in Reports Builder. The temporary recovery file is created and saved in .rdf format in the same location as that of the original definition file. The format of recovery files is reportname_extension.rdf. For example, the recovery file of an original definition file, emp.jsp, would be emp_jsp.rdf. The emp_jsp.rdf file is saved in the same location as the emp.jsp file.
