I am a Senior Software Developer Team at a small Tech Service Company. 

I would like to provide a report for users to view the analytics data within the app. I want to be able to integrate the analytics data within the app. 

Is there a way to do this?

Hello Experts,

I am working as a Solution Architect at a global enterprise tech vendor.

I have 2 RPD files, a.rpd and b.rpd. I need to switch between these 2 RPDs on the same server and through the same OBIEE tool.

Do I need to deploy both RPD files on the server to switch between these two through the same OBIEE tool?

As per my own attempt, I can open both RPD files through Administration (obiee tool) : File --> Open-->Offline and without any deployment.

Is it mandatory to deploy both RPD at server to open it online?

I guess I need to define 2 different ODBC system data sources for my repositories after deployment.

I have experience designing and developing sophisticated custom Windows-based and Web-based applications integrated with back-end databases and systems.

I am looking for a reporting tool that can generate finely detailed PDF documents. It needs to be able to use tiny fonts and have almost no margins; landscape orientation. I prefer an easy to use visual user interface. Part of the document will be filled in by code. I also want it to be easy to change as our project will programmatically be filling in more and more of the document over time. 

Are ComponentOne Reports or Active Reports better for this type of application? Open to all suggestions.

Thanks! I appreciate the help.
