Crystal Reports for Eclipse is a free set of plugins provided by the =
makers of Crystal Reports, the world's #1 Report Designer. Crystal =
Reports for Eclipse will provide Eclipse developers with an embedded =
report designer as well as a number of development tools to assist the =
developer with building applications.

=20

Below is a list of features available with the Crystal Reports for =
Eclipse product.

=20

Report Design

=20

=20

a.. New Report Designer built on the Eclipse Framework - built from =
the ground up using Business Objects' award winning Java Reporting =
Component (JRC) engine=20
b.. Drag & Drop Report Design - drag objects from the Palette or Field =
Explorer on to the report design pane=20
c.. Free form placement - don't be bound to nesting tables in your =
report. Drag and drop your report objects exactly where you want them to =
show up on your report=20
d.. Auto-generate SQL statements - SQL query is auto-generated based =
on the database fields added to the report=20
e.. Design off of POJOs - drag and drop your Java classes on to your =
report to use the class definition in your report design=20
f.. Cross-Tab reports - design cross-tab reports to easily visualize =
grouped data=20
g.. Java User Function Library (UFL) support - access external Java =
logic from within your Crystal Reports formulas=20
h.. Multiple Data Source support - use the visual database pane to =
easily create links between multiple data sources=20
i.. Integrated Code Assist - Use the built-in Eclipse Code Assist =
feature when building Crystal Reports formulas. Crystal syntax will =
display errors and display code assist within the Formulas pane
=20

=20

Development Tools

=20

=20

a.. Crystal Reports Web Project- this feature will enable developers =
to create a web project which already includes all of the required =
runtime configurations. Additionally, developers can optionally choose =
to add a sample database and reports to the project to get up and =
running in no time=20
b.. JSP Page Wizard-Drag 'n' drop a report onto a JSP page, or create =
a new JSP page via the context menu of a report. This wizard will =
provide developers with a dialog page allowing them to choose a number =
of different stub code which will be custom generated based on the =
selected report. Does your report require parameters, do you want to =
change the database at runtime, or export directly to PDF...the wizard =
will generate all of the required code to complete the requested =
actions, all custom to the specific report. You can literally get away =
with never having to write a line of reporting code again=20
c.. Java Reporting Component facet-easily add the Crystal Reports =
runtime environment to any new or existing web applications. Now you =
will never have to worry about ensuring that all your JAR files have =
been added=20
d.. Deployment Assistance - Never have to worry about ensuring the =
proper JDBC drivers are available at runtime. When a report is added to =
a project, the tooling will ensure that the required runtime libraries =
are present (including database libraries) when the application is =
built.=20
e.. Update your projects with the latest runtime-have you just =
downloaded a hot fix, but are not too sure if you have already added it =
to an existing project. Use the Crystal Reports File Versions feature =
accessed via the Properties Menu of a project to quickly and easily see =
which file versions are currently in your project and compare this with =
the file versions installed in the tooling. If they are out of synch =
click the Update button to easily update your application to the latest =
version.=20
f.. Global Property Settings-do you find that you are always turning =
off the logo on the viewer, or enabling the refresh button? Well, now =
Developers can set their global settings for the Crystal Report viewers =
within their workspace preferences. Each time a viewer is added to a JSP =
page these preferences will be honored and the appropriate code =
modifications will be added=20
g.. Java User Function Library wizard-this feature enables developers =
to expose Java logic to their Crystal Reports formulas. Does your =
organization have a large amount of code already invested into =
calculating a discount ratio? Don't fret, wrap this logic up in a User =
Function Library using this easy wizard and your Crystal Reports files =
will be able to access this same logic=20
h.. Built-in pointers to the Business Objects' Update Site-never have =
to worry about whether you have the latest version or not. Use the =
existing Eclipse Update Manager mechanism to check for updates and =
install them automatically. This feature also has built-in rollback =
capabilities in case you opt to go back to a previous version=20
i.. Integrated Help-Access a complete and robust report designer guide =
as well as developer walkthroughs, API docs and Best Practices via the =
built-in Eclipse Help System
=20

=20

On top of all this developers will find a large amount of resources =
(including free forums, video tutorials and whitepaper tutorials) =
available at our Developer Community Site =
(http://diamond.businessobjects.com/eclipse/)

=20

=20

All of these features are completely FREE for developers to download and =
deploy in production. However, if you need more out of the runtime =
engine, Business Objects also has a Professional version of Crystal =
Reports for Eclipse. This version will be available on the Business =
Objects' e-store and offer the following upgrades for the Developer:

=20

a.. More Power - a runtime engine that provides up to 5X more report =
processing power=20
b.. Technical Support- each copy of Crystal Reports for Eclipse =
Professional includes 2 support incidents. Allowing the Developer to =
contact Business Objects' world class support organization directly=20
c.. License for Multiple Server Deployments - if you need to =
distribute your application on multiple servers (e.g. web farms, web =
gardens, etc.) then you will require the Professional license
=20

Crystal Reports for Eclipse Professional can be purchased from our =
online store for $495US per server. For more information about our =
pricing and licensing options check out the following article.

Would probably help if I told you where you can download it from. :) You =
can view the different installation instructions at the link below:

Installation instructions: http://diamond.businessobjects.com/node/450

Additionally, you can read the Getting Started Guide here: =
http://diamond.businessobjects.com/system/files/CR4E_Getting +Started+Guid=
e.pdf

Finally, for all general Eclipse content you can visit the Business =
Objects Eclipse portal by going to: =
http://www.businessobjects.com/eclipse


<sean.johnson@businessobjects.com> wrote in message =
news:ebla6t$hui$2@utils.eclipse.org...
Crystal Reports for Eclipse is a free set of plugins provided by the =
makers of Crystal Reports, the world's #1 Report Designer. Crystal =
Reports for Eclipse will provide Eclipse developers with an embedded =
report designer as well as a number of development tools to assist the =
developer with building applications.

=20

Below is a list of features available with the Crystal Reports for =
Eclipse product.

=20

Report Design

=20

=20

a.. New Report Designer built on the Eclipse Framework - built from =
the ground up using Business Objects' award winning Java Reporting =
Component (JRC) engine=20
b.. Drag & Drop Report Design - drag objects from the Palette or =
Field Explorer on to the report design pane=20
c.. Free form placement - don't be bound to nesting tables in your =
report. Drag and drop your report objects exactly where you want them to =
show up on your report=20
d.. Auto-generate SQL statements - SQL query is auto-generated based =
on the database fields added to the report=20
e.. Design off of POJOs - drag and drop your Java classes on to =
your report to use the class definition in your report design=20
f.. Cross-Tab reports - design cross-tab reports to easily visualize =
grouped data=20
g.. Java User Function Library (UFL) support - access external Java =
logic from within your Crystal Reports formulas=20
h.. Multiple Data Source support - use the visual database pane to =
easily create links between multiple data sources=20
i.. Integrated Code Assist - Use the built-in Eclipse Code Assist =
feature when building Crystal Reports formulas. Crystal syntax will =
display errors and display code assist within the Formulas pane
=20

=20

Development Tools

=20

=20

a.. Crystal Reports Web Project- this feature will enable developers =
to create a web project which already includes all of the required =
runtime configurations. Additionally, developers can optionally choose =
to add a sample database and reports to the project to get up and =
running in no time=20
b.. JSP Page Wizard-Drag 'n' drop a report onto a JSP page, or =
create a new JSP page via the context menu of a report. This wizard will =
provide developers with a dialog page allowing them to choose a number =
of different stub code which will be custom generated based on the =
selected report. Does your report require parameters, do you want to =
change the database at runtime, or export directly to PDF...the wizard =
will generate all of the required code to complete the requested =
actions, all custom to the specific report. You can literally get away =
with never having to write a line of reporting code again=20
c.. Java Reporting Component facet-easily add the Crystal Reports =
runtime environment to any new or existing web applications. Now you =
will never have to worry about ensuring that all your JAR files have =
been added=20
d.. Deployment Assistance - Never have to worry about ensuring the =
proper JDBC drivers are available at runtime. When a report is added to =
a project, the tooling will ensure that the required runtime libraries =
are present (including database libraries) when the application is =
built.=20
e.. Update your projects with the latest runtime-have you just =
downloaded a hot fix, but are not too sure if you have already added it =
to an existing project. Use the Crystal Reports File Versions feature =
accessed via the Properties Menu of a project to quickly and easily see =
which file versions are currently in your project and compare this with =
the file versions installed in the tooling. If they are out of synch =
click the Update button to easily update your application to the latest =
version.=20
f.. Global Property Settings-do you find that you are always turning =
off the logo on the viewer, or enabling the refresh button? Well, now =
Developers can set their global settings for the Crystal Report viewers =
within their workspace preferences. Each time a viewer is added to a JSP =
page these preferences will be honored and the appropriate code =
modifications will be added=20
g.. Java User Function Library wizard-this feature enables =
developers to expose Java logic to their Crystal Reports formulas. Does =
your organization have a large amount of code already invested into =
calculating a discount ratio? Don't fret, wrap this logic up in a User =
Function Library using this easy wizard and your Crystal Reports files =
will be able to access this same logic=20
h.. Built-in pointers to the Business Objects' Update Site-never =
have to worry about whether you have the latest version or not. Use the =
existing Eclipse Update Manager mechanism to check for updates and =
install them automatically. This feature also has built-in rollback =
capabilities in case you opt to go back to a previous version=20
i.. Integrated Help-Access a complete and robust report designer =
guide as well as developer walkthroughs, API docs and Best Practices via =
the built-in Eclipse Help System
=20

=20

On top of all this developers will find a large amount of resources =
(including free forums, video tutorials and whitepaper tutorials) =
available at our Developer Community Site =
(http://diamond.businessobjects.com/eclipse/)

=20

=20

All of these features are completely FREE for developers to download =
and deploy in production. However, if you need more out of the runtime =
engine, Business Objects also has a Professional version of Crystal =
Reports for Eclipse. This version will be available on the Business =
Objects' e-store and offer the following upgrades for the Developer:

=20

a.. More Power - a runtime engine that provides up to 5X more report =
processing power=20
b.. Technical Support- each copy of Crystal Reports for Eclipse =
Professional includes 2 support incidents. Allowing the Developer to =
contact Business Objects' world class support organization directly=20
c.. License for Multiple Server Deployments - if you need to =
distribute your application on multiple servers (e.g. web farms, web =
gardens, etc.) then you will require the Professional license
=20

Crystal Reports for Eclipse Professional can be purchased from our =
online store for $495US per server. For more information about our =
pricing and licensing options check out the following article.

Would probably help if I told you where you can download it from. :) You =
can view the different installation instructions at the link below:

Installation instructions: http://diamond.businessobjects.com/node/450

Additionally, you can read the Getting Started Guide here: =
http://diamond.businessobjects.com/system/files/CR4E_Getting +Started+Guid=
e.pdf

Finally, for all general Eclipse content you can visit the Business =
Objects Eclipse portal by going to: =

<sean.johnson@businessobjects.com> wrote in message =
news:ebla6t$hui$2@utils.eclipse.org...
Crystal Reports for Eclipse is a free set of plugins provided by the =
makers of Crystal Reports, the world's #1 Report Designer. Crystal =
Reports for Eclipse will provide Eclipse developers with an embedded =
report designer as well as a number of development tools to assist the =
developer with building applications.

=20

Below is a list of features available with the Crystal Reports for =
Eclipse product.

=20

Report Design

=20

=20

a.. New Report Designer built on the Eclipse Framework - built from =
the ground up using Business Objects' award winning Java Reporting =
Component (JRC) engine=20
b.. Drag & Drop Report Design - drag objects from the Palette or =
Field Explorer on to the report design pane=20
c.. Free form placement - don't be bound to nesting tables in your =
report. Drag and drop your report objects exactly where you want them to =
show up on your report=20
d.. Auto-generate SQL statements - SQL query is auto-generated based =
on the database fields added to the report=20
e.. Design off of POJOs - drag and drop your Java classes on to =
your report to use the class definition in your report design=20
f.. Cross-Tab reports - design cross-tab reports to easily visualize =
grouped data=20
g.. Java User Function Library (UFL) support - access external Java =
logic from within your Crystal Reports formulas=20
h.. Multiple Data Source support - use the visual database pane to =
easily create links between multiple data sources=20
i.. Integrated Code Assist - Use the built-in Eclipse Code Assist =
feature when building Crystal Reports formulas. Crystal syntax will =
display errors and display code assist within the Formulas pane
=20

=20

Development Tools

=20

=20

a.. Crystal Reports Web Project- this feature will enable developers =
to create a web project which already includes all of the required =
runtime configurations. Additionally, developers can optionally choose =
to add a sample database and reports to the project to get up and =
running in no time=20
b.. JSP Page Wizard-Drag 'n' drop a report onto a JSP page, or =
create a new JSP page via the context menu of a report. This wizard will =
provide developers with a dialog page allowing them to choose a number =
of different stub code which will be custom generated based on the =
selected report. Does your report require parameters, do you want to =
change the database at runtime, or export directly to PDF...the wizard =
will generate all of the required code to complete the requested =
actions, all custom to the specific report. You can literally get away =
with never having to write a line of reporting code again=20
c.. Java Reporting Component facet-easily add the Crystal Reports =
runtime environment to any new or existing web applications. Now you =
will never have to worry about ensuring that all your JAR files have =
been added=20
d.. Deployment Assistance - Never have to worry about ensuring the =
proper JDBC drivers are available at runtime. When a report is added to =
a project, the tooling will ensure that the required runtime libraries =
are present (including database libraries) when the application is =
built.=20
e.. Update your projects with the latest runtime-have you just =
downloaded a hot fix, but are not too sure if you have already added it =
to an existing project. Use the Crystal Reports File Versions feature =
accessed via the Properties Menu of a project to quickly and easily see =
which file versions are currently in your project and compare this with =
the file versions installed in the tooling. If they are out of synch =
click the Update button to easily update your application to the latest =
version.=20
f.. Global Property Settings-do you find that you are always turning =
off the logo on the viewer, or enabling the refresh button? Well, now =
Developers can set their global settings for the Crystal Report viewers =
within their workspace preferences. Each time a viewer is added to a JSP =
page these preferences will be honored and the appropriate code =
modifications will be added=20
g.. Java User Function Library wizard-this feature enables =
developers to expose Java logic to their Crystal Reports formulas. Does =
your organization have a large amount of code already invested into =
calculating a discount ratio? Don't fret, wrap this logic up in a User =
Function Library using this easy wizard and your Crystal Reports files =
will be able to access this same logic=20
h.. Built-in pointers to the Business Objects' Update Site-never =
have to worry about whether you have the latest version or not. Use the =
existing Eclipse Update Manager mechanism to check for updates and =
install them automatically. This feature also has built-in rollback =
capabilities in case you opt to go back to a previous version=20
i.. Integrated Help-Access a complete and robust report designer =
guide as well as developer walkthroughs, API docs and Best Practices via =
the built-in Eclipse Help System
=20

=20

On top of all this developers will find a large amount of resources =
(including free forums, video tutorials and whitepaper tutorials) =
available at our Developer Community Site =
(http://diamond.businessobjects.com/eclipse/)

=20

=20

All of these features are completely FREE for developers to download =
and deploy in production. However, if you need more out of the runtime =
engine, Business Objects also has a Professional version of Crystal =
Reports for Eclipse. This version will be available on the Business =
Objects' e-store and offer the following upgrades for the Developer:

=20

a.. More Power - a runtime engine that provides up to 5X more report =
processing power=20
b.. Technical Support- each copy of Crystal Reports for Eclipse =
Professional includes 2 support incidents. Allowing the Developer to =
contact Business Objects' world class support organization directly=20
c.. License for Multiple Server Deployments - if you need to =
distribute your application on multiple servers (e.g. web farms, web =
gardens, etc.) then you will require the Professional license
=20

Crystal Reports for Eclipse Professional can be purchased from our =
online store for $495US per server. For more information about our =
pricing and licensing options check out the following article.
