Running the Java Command Line Example

These files can be used to create a command-line .class file which is equivalent to the example located in the /test folder of the Java Engine installation directory as implemented in the run.bat file (java net.windward.xmlreport.RunReport template.rtf report.htm -xml order.xml). The RunReport application will accommodate a variety of data source types.
