Disclosed is a Reporting System Framework and Recursive Reporting Framework for e-commerce server. The Reporting System Framework aims to provide a reporting infrastructure to support both on-line and off-line commerce report. The Recursive Reporting Framework is built based on the Reporting System Framework and attempts to resolve complicated and computational intensive recursive reports found in e-commerce applications. Reporting Framework 1.0 Overview Reporting Framework receives a request from either a Java Servlet (JSP) or a Java Server command. It retrieves queries needed to be run and then execute them. The result data will be sent out to report renderer and let the renderer do proper formatting on the output data. There are two channels in the reporting framework and they are on-line reporting channel and off-line reporting channel. All on-line reports use on-line report channel and all off-line reports use off-line report channel. Once the request is passed into the reporting framework, activities of the request are controlled and managed by a central place called ‘Report Control Center’.The query string for this report or the extended report object is loaded from reporting.xml file and managed by ‘Report Control Center’.
