Add Cognos "Active Reports" support to Windchill

Add Cognos "Active Reports" support to Windchill

Active reports are not currently supported, but need to be supported.

Business Justification: Active Reports offer interactive behavior which would benefit critical executive level reporting.


Tests done:


1. In Cognos Connection, navigate to Public Folders > Windchill > <someFolder> and start Report Studio.
2. Select to create a new report from a template and select 'Active Report' as template.
3. I added a simple list of part name/numbers and saved the report.
4. In jconsole, call exposeReports() from the ReportingSystem monitoring MBean.

The result is '0' and there is no new report visible under Site > Reports in Windchill. A 'regular' Cognos report template is exposed fine and works as expected.
