Hi..

The PDF files generated is stored in the Report Library. I would like to extract the report using Standalone Java API and ftp it to our archival system outside the Report Library. I am looking for an worked out sample Java code that can accomplish this.

Appreciate your response.

Thanks
Bye

What do you mean by "extract" ?

Can you give an example?

Do you want the information that is in the pdf report use it in an other format?

The "Report Library" is nothing more than a table storing the report in an object field with additional information about user access and versioning. Whatever the database is that you are using for the repository (guessing DB2) should be accessible by any other client through a Java API through that database's client.

Personally, I would just set up an additional task or separate job in ReportCaster to do the FTP for you - no need for additional Java code.

I have implemented Java API to extract the PDF files from the Library. The issue is resolved and can be closed.

Thanks
