    Flex and Crystal Reports

    olegkon Level 1

      Hi,

       

      I need to build a simple Flex front end for a bunch of Crystal Reports,

      basically a few forms, which supposed to pass params to CR (select reports, dates, filter params,

      sort of building SQL Query:  select * from... where param1='value1'...).

       

      Is there any integration between them ? Tools, libraries ?

      I downloaded CR plugin for Eclipse.

       

      I do understand that there is Java API for CR:

      http://help.sap.com/javadocs/cr/xir2/index.html

       

      Don't have experience with CR, but plenty with Java and Flex.

      Done little BusinessObjects years ago.

       

      So, I guess, need to use BlazeDS between Flex & Java.

       

      Alternatively, can build GUI in Java (e.g. JSP).

       

       

      Please advise.

       

       

      TIA,

      Oleg.

          Lets say, I build it as AIR2 app and kick up Crystal Reports as file.openWithDefaultApplication()

           

           

          Any way to pass parameters to CR without Java involved in that case?

           

           

          So, I guess, need to use BlazeDS between Flex & Java, right ?

           

          Or maybe do Flex - to Java via WebService (so I don't need BlazeDS) ?

           

           

           

          Alternatively, can build GUI in Java (e.g. JSP).

          Is that a better option ?

           

           

          Please advise,

          Oleg.
