A generator for the generator
I'm currently thinking about writing a generator which creates a JRXML-report-definition from either an Oracle Forms-Module or from an APEX-page (I'm not sure at the moment which one i prefer).
The generator would analyze the module/page, transform the queries into datasets in JRXML, transform the fields into report-fields in JRXML, transform tabular data into a table-layout and finally store the JRXML in the PL-JRXML2PDF-report-definition table. As an add-on the code to call that report could also be generated.
At the moment i'm not sure if this a useful feature or just a "gimmick". Any comments are welcome.
