This sample demonstrates how to create a HTML Report for REST Services using a Jasper Report template in WSO2 Governance Registry. The content of the report is a list of all REST Services that are stored in WSO2 G-Reg, including their name and version along with a brief description. If you need to customize it, change the key of the GenericArtifactManager class, and modify the ReportBean class in the source of the sample, according to the attributes you need to list in the report. 

This sample converts the content of the image file to Base64 representation. Therefore, it can serve a single HTML file without having links to image files.


Set up the general prerequisites required for WSO2 G-Reg, before you start.

This sample requires Apache Maven. For information on how to install it, see Installation Prerequisites.
