[Mondrian] Trigger Pentaho to email a report

Hi all, I'm new here and to Pentaho.

We have an server-side application (written in C++) that we need to 
email a report from (PDF perhaps). The report would need to have some 
parameters passed to it and would display different data depending on 
those parameters.

I have read that Pentaho can email reports. I assume it's possible to 
have this triggered from another application and have read about lots of 
various possibilities (xactions, REST services, CLI, etc). I became 
overwhelmed and decided to ask the experts.

What would be the most obvious or hassle free way of doing this? I am 
not adverse to using URLs or CLI or REST. I don't think a C/C++ API 
exists. JNI is not something I want to get into.

Looking forward to any advice.

Many thanks,
