A customer wants to print automatically an RTreport to PDF upon ending of a batch. He wants to use as much standard PI functionalities.


So these was my idea:


- The batch comes in via the DeltaV batch interface. Can we link the batches to AF so to know that a batch is done or a new batch came in?


- Use a web service as delivery channel endpoint.


- Give batch data (batchID, start - endtime, ....) as web parameters to the webservice


- The webservices can then create the RTreport URL


- And then the printing to PDF ... anybody an idea?




So you see, it is still in a begin phase.


All suggestions, other solutions or examples are welcome.
