Technical Foundation

For its back-end, Report Express tightly integrates with LifecycleDM’s architecture by extending its metadata model with reporting-specific entities. Report Express also reuses the application server architecture of LifecycleDM, but it adds additional components – the Portal web application and the Report Generation Web Service (RGWS). RGWS turns Report Express into a SOA solution, which is able to interoperate with various systems on different platforms by exposing a standardized web service interface for generation of reports. Report Express is a container for third-party report generation tools. Currently, the ReportingEngines (Actuate) Formula One tools – e.Report Engine and e.Spreadsheet Engine – are used in the background to provide generation of rich report content in multiple file formats. Report Catalog is a small web-based application that provides the end-users with an access to the generated reports according to their location, department and position. This additional tool vastly decrease the number of connections to the Report Express.
