Siebel Report Components

 

A Siebel report is generated from following components:

  • Report Schema (XML File)
    • Integration Objects are used to retrieve the data from Siebel database.

 

  • Report Layout (XSL and XLIFF Files)
    • Layout of the reports is designed in MS Word as an RTF file. It is then converted into XSL (Extensible Style-sheet Language) file with the help of BI Publisher Desktop Add-in.
    • Fixed text strings, mentioned in the RTF file for various fields and controls, are stored in a separate XLIFF (XML Localization Interchange File Format) file. It allows for easy language translations.
