Re: Oracle table to PDF using XML


oracle to xml to pdf
Feel free to apply to our (free) beta if you want to try DataDirect 
XQuery for this. You can do that here:

http://www.datadirect.com/products/xquery/xquerybetahome/index.ssp

One of the nice things about our DataDirect XQuery is the ability to 
visualize the relational database tables, and even to drag and drop from 
them into an XQuery, all from within an Eclipse plugin. If you are 
writing a lot of queries, or complex queries, that can be very helpful. 
And once your query is working, you can generate a Java program that 
executes the query. You could then modify this generated program to call 
the FO engine and produce the PDF.
