Oracle Business Intelligence components
The Oracle Business Intelligence components consist of:
The Oracle Business Intelligence Presentation Services provides the framework and interface for presentation of Business Intelligence data to web clients. It maintains a Presentation Catalog service on the file system for the customization of this presentation framework. It is a standalone process and integrates with the Oracle Business Intelligence Presentation Services Plug-in from which it receives web client requests. It communicates with the Oracle Business Intelligence Server using ODBC over TCP/IP.
The Oracle Business Intelligence Server is a stand-alone process that maintains the logical data model which it provides to BI Presentation Services via ODBC. Metadata is maintained for the data model in a local proprietary file called the repository file (rpd). On the back-end, the BI Server connects to customer data stores via data source adaptors.
The Oracle Business Intelligence Scheduler is an extensible scheduling application for scheduling reports to be delivered to users at specified times. It is the engine behind the Oracle Business Intelligence Delivers feature.
The Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher generates highly-formatted, pixel-perfect enterprise reports.
The Oracle Business Intelligence Javahost provides services to BI Presentation Services for Charts, Gauges and PDFs. The services are provided based on request-response model.
The Oracle Business Intelligence Presentation Services Plug-in is the entry point for web client requests to BI Presentation Services.
The Oracle BI Presentation Services, Oracle BI Client, and Oracle BI Server components can be installed to run on separate machines.
