Hi

I am running Crystal report on Jakarta tomcat server and not sure how to get Report Application Server Launchpad running.

When I run a jsp file after going through the installation process for crystal reports (enterpreise) I get an error message which basically says that tomcat cannot find any of the class files in the COM directory which should be part of crystal reports ras sdk.

I am not sure where to find the COM folder and where do i place it in the Jakarta directory structure to get it working.

Would appreciate any help

Thanks
David

if you follow these steps you should be able to view reports using the ce 9 ras that comes with cr 9 developer and advanced.

or are you using the full crystal enterprise 9 standard or professional?

Thnx for the reply.

I am currently using the evaluation copy of Crystal Reports and Crystal Enterprise. I went through the steps given in the document at http://support.crystaldecisions.com/library/kbase/articles/c2012210.asp - I am not too sure what they mean by CE RAS 9 JSP application files in STEP 5.

However when i restart the server and open a sample report file i have created i am getting errors where essentially the tomcat cannot find package com.*

also if i type in the url for crystalreportsviewer the browser displays a directory listing.

Would very much appreciate if you could help with this issue.

Regards,

David

using tomcat you have to use some code to view a report, here are some samples
http://support.crystaldecisions.com/communityCS/FilesAndUpdates/ADV_RAS9_JSP_Samples.exe.asp
http://support.crystaldecisions.com/communityCS/FilesAndUpdates/DEV_RAS9_JSP_Samples.exe.asp

if you want to view a report simply by piecing a url together, ie
http://server/folder/report.rpt
you need to use iis with crystal enterprise 9 standard or professional, not just the crystal enterprise 9 report application server

It is possible the Evaluation version of CR can't do what you want.  I have seen many questions about why something doesn't work with it.

I have heard some of the features are not enabled or crippled in some way.  I don't know that for sure but it is possible.
