    AIR2 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'...).

      Lets say I build it as AIR2 app and kick up Crystal Reports as

      file.openWithDefaultApplication()

       

      Any way to pass parameters to CR without explicit Java involved ?



      Is there any integration between them ? Tools, libraries ?


      Anything new in AIR2 for Crystal Reports?

       

      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, right ?

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

       

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

       

       

      Please advise.

       

       

      TIA,

      Oleg.
