XML Reports

This module was written to extend the functionality of the reporting engine to
support XML reports and allow modules to generate them by code or by QWeb


To install this module, you need to:

* Install lxml_ in Odoo's ``$PYTHONPATH``.
* Install the repository `reporting-engine`_.

But this module does nothing for the end user by itself, so if you have it
installed it's probably because there is another module that depends on it.


If you are a user

You will be able to download XML reports from the *Print* menu found on form

In case you want to create a `custom report`_, the instructions remain the same
as for HTML reports, and the method that you must override is also called
``render_html``, even when this time you are creating a XML report.

You can make your custom report inherit ``report_xml.xsd_checked_report``, name
it like your XML ``<template>`` id prepended by ``report.``, add a ``xsd()``
method that returns a XSD in a string, and have XSD automatic checking for

You can visit ``http://<server-address>/report/xml/<module.report_name>/<ids>``
to see your XML report online as a web page.
