Creating PDFs in APEX after ORDS 19.1

Until 19.1 ORDS provided a built-in printing engine based on Apache FOP which allowed you to download a PDF version of your reports and XLS-FO templates in a very easy manner. However in ORDS 18.4.0 release notes we could find information that this feature is deprecated and will be removed in future release. This is exactly what happened with the release of ORDS 19.2.

So what actually happened? 

This is from Oracle’s release notes of ORDS 19.2:

SSO for Oracle REST DataServices

Hello there,

Recently I've started to dig into the ORDS authentication and more specifically in how to make it work against my Oracle WebLogic server authenticators.
