How reliable are Antivia's XComponents ??
Can we use them in the real time environment because heard that they wont work after few days?
Do they get expired?
As you might be aware of the fact that the XComponents are a free set of components for Xcelsius which highlight some of the possibilities of the Xcelsius SDK. These are 3rd party components from Antivia so SAP Business Objects does not provide any support for them which in turn means they are not completely tested by the product group team.
So it would be inappropriate to comment on how they would behave from environment to environment. However from my personal experience, I have seen many users making use of XScorecard component without any issues. Infact XScorecard component is such a hit amongst user that SAP is planning to include a similar component in their future releases.
