How to Convert RTF to XSL-FO using BI PUBLISHER API in Oracle Apps (Example)










 Oracle Has shared us a set of BI Publisher Java Classes for performing various BI Publisher function like converting RTF to XSL-FO, generating PDF output from XSL-FO and XML etc.
In this post, we will convert a RTF file to XSL-FO file using the standard Oracle BI Publisher API (Java based).

STEP1: Prepare a sample RTF Template

STEP2: Prepare the Java wrapper Class for calling Standard RTFProcessor


Filename: convertrtftoxsl.java

import java.io.FileInputStream;
import java.io.FileOutputStream;
import java.io.OutputStream;
import java.security.*;
import java.util.Arrays;
import java.util.Collections;
import javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory;
import javax.xml.transform.*;
import javax.xml.transform.dom.DOMSource;
import javax.xml.transform.stream.StreamResult;
import org.w3c.dom.Document;
import org.w3c.dom.Node;
import java.io.*;
import java.security.spec.*;
import oracle.apps.xdo.template.RTFProcessor;

public class convertrtftoxsl {

  public static void main(String[] args)
  {
    try
    {
          FileInputStream   fIs  = new FileInputStream(args[0]);  //input RTF template
      FileOutputStream  fOs  = new FileOutputStream(args[1]); // output XSL File

      RTFProcessor rtfProcessor = new RTFProcessor(fIs);
      rtfProcessor.setOutput(fOs);   
      rtfProcessor.process();
    }
    catch (Exception e)
    {
      e.printStackTrace();
      System.exit(1);
    }
    System.exit(0);
  }

Step3: Compile the Java wrapper Class

javac -classpath $CLASSPATH convertrtftoxsl.java

Step 4: Copy the Wrapper Class to JAVA_TOP

cp convertrtftoxsl.class $JAVA_TOP

Step5: Place the RTF file in Desired Directory and Call the Wrapper Java Class

java -classpath $CLASSPATH convertrtftoxsl ./RTFTEMPLATEEX.rtf ./RTFTEMPLATEEX.xsl

STEP6: Check the Generated XSL-FO file

Now the Command given in the step5 can be called from HOST based concurrent program in Oracle Apps.
Happy Sharing J Enjoy Learning J
