Hi vidula kulkarni ,
First of all to access and display the Crystal Reports in Web format(I mean HTML Content type) , you need the Report Application Server should be running separater(Either it may in tomcat machine or it may in different machi as well.).
Then you need to maintain the Report Physical path in RAS(Report application Server) .It means that your template CR(Crystal report files should be kept in that directory).
Then as usual you need to copy all the RAS SDK provided during the installation in the Tomcat's root Lib directory.
Then using that RAS API classes you can open the Crystal Reports.(This RAS API will take care of converting the Crystal Data - [CR data]into HTML format).
May be you can refer some of the Posting of mine in the support.crystaldecision.com forum.
Let me know if you need more
regards
ramesh

i'm also sailing in the same boat ..was this issue fixed?

Can you suggest me the the ways you followed to open crystal report using jsp.Crystal reports are deployed on a seperate BO server .I need to create a simple web applciation that will invoke those reports based on the parameters passed...!

Please provide me steps to follow .

What is web componenet adapter for java? What is RAS?
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
