JasperReportsIntegration - Full path requirement and workaround

Mon, 2014-04-14 16:38
I have just posted an answer to a question that seems like a bug in the JasperReportsIntegration toolkit, that you have to use absolute paths for referencing images or subreports, which is typically a bad thing.

Don't know exactly why it doesn't work, but there is a workaround for that:

Hope that helps,

First blogpost at my own hosted wordpress instance

Mon, 2014-04-14 15:50
I have been blogging at for quite some years now ... and many people have rather preferred wordpress to blogspot, I can now understand why :).

It is quite flexible and easy to use and there are tons of themes available ... really cool ones.

The main decision to host my own wordpress instance was in the end motivated by different means. I have created two products and they needed a platform to be presented:
First I wanted to buy a new theme from themeforest and build an APEX theme for that ... but this is a lot of work.

I then decided to host my content using wordpress since I have already bought a new theme:

And this one has a really easy setup procedure for wordpress and comes with a ton of effects and wizards, cool page designer, etc.

Hopefully this will get mit motivated to post more frequently ... we will see ;).


Oracle APEX Listener - support for Apache Tomcat

Wed, 2014-02-12 16:58
The Oracle APEX listener is one possible gateway to run Oracle Application Express besides the Oracle http server (OHS), the embedded pl/sql gateway (which is the http server included in the Oracle database as part of the XML DB) and other open source alternatives.

Being implemented as a J2EE application it needs a servlet container to be deployed in. Finally, due to popular customer demands, the Apache Tomcat servlet container is (again) supported. Many customers are using it already for quite a while and I personally had hardly any issues with that.

When you look at the APEX listener 2.0 installation guide you will find a section on deploying to tomcat. There they talk about Apache Tomcat 7 but it seems like version 6 is also supported, I have found the information on Kris Rices blog, he is the development manager of the APEX listener.

This is not really NEW news ;), but I personally had not seen this information before.

Cheers and enjoy,
