Save memory with PDF and XSLX exports by writing to File rather than ByteArrayOutputStream

Dennis Haller shared this idea 5 years ago

Currently Yellowfin writes to ByteArrayOutputStream when exporting to XLS or PDF. If the report is huge then this can cause heap memory issues. So please add an option such that Yellowfin can write to FileOutputStream , or perhaps serialize the ByteArrayOutputStream to a file so that the memory footprint is reduced (of course performance will be affected, but that's the trade-off)
