I have a jsp page that is using CrystalReportViewer to view Crystal Reoprts on HTML. BY the way, I'm using the JRC here, it actually for Crystal Reports 10 if I'm not mistaken. But when I access the jsp page, the browser displays:
Thanks for replying. But How should I redesign it?
The tomcat server which I'm using is installed in my pc as well as the JSP page, but I did not install Crystal Reports 10 on my PC. It was installed on another pc, and then I just copied the report to my pc and place it inside the folder where my JSP page can be found.
Am I required to the Crystal Reports 10 in my PC? Is that the cause of the error?
Because my setup right now is this one:
I have installed tomcat in pc1 and the crystal reports 10 in pc2, now there is an xml file(CrystalReportEngine-config.xml) where you have to specify the report location in its <reportlocation></reportlocation> tag, this xml file is located inside tomcat same folder as my jsp page, the problem is if I would like to access the report in pc2 like what you've suggested to run the report where Crystal Reports is installed, I have to put something like <reportlocation>\\pc2\reports\</reportlocation> but it seems that this is not allowed, reportlocation is expected to be pointing at where you have installed tomcat that is pc1.
So does that mean I have to install the tomcat server and the crystal reports 10 into one pc?
This is what I hate about development in IBM's web tool ... hardly anyone seems to have experienced the myriad issues .NET developers are able to exchange information about.
If this were ASP.Net I were developing in, if I had this problem (which I wouldn't), either the guy across from me, or the lady behind me, or someone a phone call away or pages and pages of web links would have an explanation and possible solutions for me. With Rapid Application Developer, it doesn't seem to have been around long enough for people to know ish aobut it.
I don't mind using the tool, but the community support for it blows a big one at this point.
