This sql will create an XML file at the same location from where you are running this utility. You need to mode the XML file to OA_HTML where its corresponding XSLT file is present. You can then access this XML file using the URL: http://(hostname):(Apache port)/OA_HTML/adfilerep.xml

The output will looks like this.

Hope this helps !!
