Oracle Discoverer 10g
Discoverer is used to generate reports from database table.
In reports6i we are using Data model and layout model for generation of reports. Like that in Discoverer we are usingDiscoverer admin editionforcreation business areas andDiscoverer desktopedition for work book creation.Report6i DiscovererData Model = Admin Editi
on (Business Area)Layout model = Desktop edition (workbook)
In discoverer we need less effort...to design the report4. It is also easy to modify the reports...After generation.5. User can sort data in the output very easily.With Discoverer we can:
Rapidly query a relational database, data warehouse or data mart.
Intuitively drill down and analyze data by simply clicking and dragging.
Produce high-impact reports, presentations, and Web pages from your results.
Access non-Oracle databases using ODBC.
Send reports to other users via MAPI-compliant e-mail.Schedule reports to be run at a later date and time using Discoverer's batchfacility.Disadvantages:1.
Meta data needs to be created by Oracle technical consultants.2.
