    Running Crystal Reports From Java


    Is there any way to run crystal reports from java. We need the ability to
    pass parameters to a .rpt. We need to send tables, filters, and even sql
    statements if possible. We can run a report that runs straight from the
    database, but if any data manipulation is required prior to calling the report
    when don't know if we can do this. Help!

    Thanks

    I do not know of any way of doing this directly other than using JNI and
    a C or C++ header. Another way is to use Delphi or BCB to create a Corba
    Object to write the exported calls and then create a Java Corba Object to
    communicvate with the Delphi or BCB Corba object which is calling the COM
    API's. The downside is, of course, you would need Visibroker (and endure
    the inherent cost on Windows). Orbix is free on Linux, but you would probably
    have to use BCB for the Client Corba Object. I am not sure (but I doubt it)
    that Delphi's Corba is compatible with anything but Visibroker.

    One other option is to try the COM to Java bridge from Sun, and see if you
    could get this to ccommunicate with the COM objects of Crystal Reports.
