How to Pass Parameters from a JSP to a Crystal Report Template
Posted on 2004-09-28
I am new to Crystal Reports and Crystal Enterprise. I need to pass parameters from a Portlet JSP to a Crystal Report template. The JSP will launch a report template via a URL connection. The user will provide the Crystal Server address and path to the report template in the portlet UI form/fields. The report template is stored on a Crystal Enterprise V10 server and the database is DB2. The CE may/may not be running on a Portal Server. I have the following questions:
1) How do I create the report template using Crystal Reports V10 that accepts the parameters from JSP without prompting for them?
2) How do I pass the parameters from the JSP to the report template?
If you can provide step by step instructions, that would be very helpful.
