WebElements 2.46 with business Objects XI3.1 SP4?

Hi Guys,

We recently upgraded our Business Objects XI 3.1 SP2 FP2.8 to Business Objects XI 3.1 SP4. When we try to view WebElements Report via CR2008 or via Infoview it basically shows just the HTML code behind that report. We followed the WebElements 2.46 guide to configure the BusinessObjects Enterprise server to allow pass-through HTML but it's still the same.

Just wondering if anyone out there is running WebElements on Business Objects XI 3.1 SP4? Or if anyone has a similar issue?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Adnan

if you put a new formula on a new report with no database connection with the following syntax, what is the result?


"<div>this is html</div>"

if it shows up as "this is html" on the report then pass through has been activated properly.

if it shows up with the div tags printed out, then

1) if you're using tomcat does the context parameter show up more than once in the xml file? if so, delete the 2nd mention of that context parameter

2) if you're using tomcat, move the context parameter so that it's the 2nd last context paremeter in the xml file

3) if you're using another web server, did you redeploy opendocument

Thanks Jamie for your reply. As you suggested, I created a new report with that formula and it does show "this is html". So that means html pass through is setup properly. Let me know if you have any other thoughts.

Jamie, Just so that you don't spend any more effort, we have decided to roll back our BO upgrade and decided to stay on our current patch and take the leap next year to BO 4.0. Figured that it's better to spend energy and time on upgrading to BO 4.0 later as we eventually have to go there, rather than upgrading and testing for X3.1 SP4.

It would however help to know if anyone is using WebElemnents on BO 4.0 or if you know of any compatibility issues of WebElements 2.46 with BO 4.

Thanks again.

hi Adrian,

there were some issues with webelements in the latest service pack of xi 3. this was due to changes in the xi 3 dhtml viewer.

if you've got a test bed with the latest version up still, please try the latest version of webelements [here|]. that version is .247 and has been tested on xi 3 (latest service pack) and bi 4.0.

the 246 version will not work on bi 4.0. we have no customer feedback for webelements on bi 4.0 as this will be the first release for 4.0. there were recent changes in a fix pack of bi 4.0 which delayed the release of webelements by quite a bit...sorry for that.

there are also a couple of new functions in 247 too.

i hope this helps,

jamie
