Hi,
I need to evaluate the possibility of using Crystal Reports with Weblogic - essentially it's not enough to just fix the table name or SQL query at design time - I need to be able to provide the resultset at runtime to report and open it that way. It can be designed and formatted and all but it's very important that it gets its data from a resultset created at runtime.
I have found an example for .NET that suggests it's possible but after doing some research the namespaces are completely different from packages in Java and the ReportDocument class doesn't even exist (or I can't find it anyway).
If it makes a difference, WebLogic 8.1 and Crystal 9.
So, does anyone have experience with this? Or should we stick to FOP better?

TIA,
Bojan

As far as I remember(according to a demo we had from Crystal guys), Crystal can work along with Weblogic and usable in a J2EE setup.
Contact Crystal's resources(may be website, forums etc), you will get more of confirmation on this issue.
(we went with a different vendor due to pricing issues)

Hi guys, thanks for the replies, I have succesfully installed the Crystal in Workshop and everything seems fine except that I can't alter the report from code - seems I can't change the report source programatically.
I have found an example in C# but all the namespaces are different and the ReportDocument class doesn't even exist in Java. Could it be that CR implementation for .NET is so much better that the one for Java?
