We are trying to access Crystal server 2011 enterprise reports from Java based COTS application. I would like to know the process of implementing this, what needs to be done on the Java application side and the crystal server 2011 side in order to access the Crystal reports from the Java application.
Thanks in advance
There are multiple ways to achieve this, however I would say the best approach would be to use Open Document Url reporting technique.
You can construct Open Document Urls to your reports and embed them in your java application.
Refer to the below link for more details around open document url's
You can then create logon token/serialized session and can bypass the BO login from your application while viewing the reports from application.
