Hi sir,

I have some clarifications regarding the development and implimentation of
crystal reports.

1. Is crystal report is compatible with Mysql (like any other db).

2. Can we execute(or convert in to pdf,excel etc) a crystal report through java
code?

3. If so, is it going to work in linux enviornment?

Pls give me answer to this questions with compatible versions of crystal
reports.
