You can make reports available throughout your enterprise by developing reporting applications. Reports created in a reporting application can be grouped together and run using a web-based form. You can develop basic or complex applications locally and then deploy them to the web, where they are run as self-service applications.
You can maintain a reporting application by updating or adding Master Files, reporting procedures, HTML files, or other components.
This section describes how to create a self-service reporting application in the local development environment. For information on creating a Managed Reporting application, see the Managed Reporting manual.
