Goal

 Application Express 3.0 introduces the ability to export a report region to PDF - essentially, printing a report. This is defined declaratively and is available for all report regions. Application Express users can now view and print reports with page headings that repeat on each page and content that properly conforms to various page sizes. To accomplish this, report data is transformed to PDF format using an externally defined report server.

Your report server can be Oracle BI Publisher or another standard XSL-FO processing engine. If you choose BI Publisher as your report server, you will have available a higher level of functionality. To accommodate the difference in functionality, Oracle Application Express provides two levels of functionality - Standard and Advanced. With standard, you are limited to XSL-FO based report templates.

This describes now to implement Reports Printing with Oracle BI Publisher.
