New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.
What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.
During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.
I've been working and searching on this for a couple of hours and it's time to ask for help.
I have a simple form with a single text box input.
-DEFAULTH &COUNTRY = '_FOC_NULL'
<form action="/ibi_apps/WFServlet" method="get">
<input type="hidden" name="IBIF_ex" value="country_cars.fex">
Enter the NPI Number (a partial num will return multiple rows):
<input type="EDIT" name="COUNTRY" value="">
I'd like to enter a number (ex: 10) as the input and then call a pretty simple procedure, passing the parameter.
-DEFAULT &COUNTRY = '_FOC_NULL'
TABLE FILE CAR
WHERE COUNTRY EQ '&COUNTRY'
Both files are in the same content directory, right off the content root. But, WF can not find the procedure.
How do I help it?This message has been edited. Last edited by: Don Garland,
When you run a WFServlet request the way you have it coded, it is looking for the procedures on the reporting server in any app folder in the APP PATH. I think there is a way to run WFServlet pointing to the content area but not sure what the syntax is.
Thank you for using Focal Point!

it is looking for the procedures on the reporting server in any app folder in the APP PATH.
I thought of that and put the fex in a few locations within the app path but it still doesn't find it. Back in 7.65 we used to set a series of variables. That method was given to me by an IBI Prof Serv person at DG and it worked but I can't find documentation that matches that method for 8.09.
My first efforts were to get this to work in HTML Composer. And if the FEX is in the HTML Document, it works and it's fast to put together, but calling an external fex and passing an input variable seems to be more difficult.
NOTE: WF does find the fex if I save it to baseapp. This validates what was suggested but I'm hoping to find a configuration solution to this.
Honestly, a HTML Composer solution would be the best way to get this done. Just like adding a report to an HTML document which does allow me to pass parameters to it (or set them and refresh would be more accurate).This message has been edited. Last edited by: Don Garland,
