Projects:Process Definition Reports/TechnicalSpecs


Process Defintion Reports - Technical Specs


This project is delivered as a patch to be included in core. All the developments belong to core's module org.openbravo.client.application.

Application Dictionary

New Tab Reports based on new OBUIAPP_Report table.


This table has a unique constraint on obuiapp_process so each Process Definintion can only have 1 record.

The report definition must belong to the same module than the header. The sourcedata datasource has been modified accordingly and a trigger has been created to avoid modifications when the module is not in development.

New Files

Generic Action Handler to be used for reports. It can be used on any report if no additional requirements are needed.

In case that a report needs to to additional validations or it is desired to send to the jasper report additional parameters not defined as filter parameters it is possible to extend this class. Extra validations can be done overriding the doValidations empty method. Extra parameters can be defined in the addAdditionalParameters method adding them to the parameters Map.

The print process is done in a static synchronize method preventing multiple executions in parallel.

The Report is printed in 2 calls to the server. On the first call the report is generated and the file is stored in the tmp folder in the Openbravo Source folder. The response JSONObject includes a responseActions object to call the OBUIAPP_downloadReport action with the name and path of the temporary file.

The OBUIAPP_downloadReport does a new call to the ActionHandler using the GlobalHiddenForm to download the file. Once the file is downloaded it is deleted from the temporary folder.
