Business Objects Announces Preview Release of Crystal Reports for Eclipse

    Online News published in DMReview.com
November 11, 2005

Business Objects announced a preview release of Crystal Reports for Eclipse. This new version of Crystal Reports will provide a 100 percent Java-based report design and deployment environment for application developers.

Every software application that stores data must have a way to present that information back to the user. For more than a decade, Crystal Reports has been the defacto standard for embedded reporting. Starting with Microsoft Visual Basic over 10 years ago, Crystal Reports has provided embedded reporting directly within integrated development environments (IDEs) to allow application developers to efficiently create reports directly within their applications. Today, Crystal Reports is integrated within a majority of the leading IDEs including Microsoft Visual Studio .NET, IBM Rational Application Developer, BEA Workshop, and Borland JBuilder.

With the preview release of Crystal Reports for Eclipse, application developers can create new reports or use existing Crystal Reports documents, and integrate them directly into applications. This new version of Crystal Reports will take full advantage of the Eclipse user interface, including dockable panes and context sensitive menus to customize the reports without ever leaving the Eclipse development environment. In addition, Business Objects is providing a development and test license of the embedded reporting engine that lets developers build report viewing directly within client-server and web applications.

For Java developers looking to deploy their Eclipse solutions, IBM Rational Application Developer 6.0 provides advanced Crystal Reports functionality including improved drag and drop support, enhanced web based application development, and simplified management of reports. Developers can also choose to deploy the application using the full management, scalability, interactivity, and security of the Business Objects BI platform, with either Crystal Reports Server or BusinessObjects XI.
