Create Webi Report from scratch using BO SDK and API?

Im trying to develop a JAVA application to create a Webi Report from scratch using BO SDK and BO Restful API. I managed to create an empty Webi Report using the API but I cannot create a report based on a universe or add data provider information to it. Since im a beginner with SAP BO and Webi reports I tried creating some simple webi report by using the API but the API can only create empty dataproviders. Unlike other webi reports that have dataproviders, I cannot define the dictionary structure like in this example or add queries for that matter:



    <name>Query 1</name>









        <expression qualification="Dimension" dataType="DateTime">


            <name>Created Date</name>


            <formulaLanguageId>[Created Date]</formulaLanguageId>


        <expression qualification="Dimension" dataType="String">


            <name>First Name</name>


            <formulaLanguageId>[First Name]</formulaLanguageId>


        <expression qualification="Dimension" dataType="String">







    <query>SELECT  event.createdDate,  event.firstName, FROM  event</query>


How can I create a Webi document off a universe or create an empty webi document and add dataprovider and query information to it?
