GEBS Reporting Web Publisher removes the deployment and maintenance costs, including updates, incurred when deploying the thick RPE client on every machine in your organization.

Easily allows teams to adopt a new RPE version.

REST Service integration

GEBS Reporting Web Publisher offers a RESTful interface build on top of IBM Rational Publishing Engine.

The Web Publisher REST Specification provides a standard way for Web clients to generate documents using the RPE’s public API through Representational State Transfer (REST) technology

Each organization will have the possibility to build its own Web UI based on the Web Publisher REST Specification.

History Mechanism

With the report history feature users can store all the versions of a document over time. Document generation history balances Web-based reporting with the need to maintain past corporate documents for future reference.

Document generation details (execution time, user, status, comments, etc.), as well as the associated log and the result output files (archived in a .zip file) are all stored safe in the history database on the server side.

Starting with version 2.0 Web Publisher provides a specialized extension to help customers to automatically upload their resources to the Web Publisher server. The Web Publisher importer can be deployed directly in RPE (with a minim of effort) or in any other Eclipse based application. Learn more about Web Publisher Importer Tool
