Crystal servlet to .rpt file connection
Posted on 2006-04-18
I am brand new to Crystal reports.
I have a jsp page with two date fields, "fromdate" and "todate" and a button called "show report". when the user clicks on the show report button i am going to the Action class from action class i am forwarding the control to a servlet .
Now i want this servlet to pass the parametres such as
String databasename = ReportConstants.DATA_BASE;
String databasepwd = ReportConstants.DATA_BASE_PWD;
String crystalip = ReportConstants.CRYSTAL_IP;
String crystalfolder = ReportConstants.CRYSTAL_FOLDER;
String crystalprotocol = ReportConstants.CRYSTAL_PROTOCOL;
and using the above parametres ,i want to "connect to the .rpt file" to display the report. But i am stuck with what needs to be done in the servlet TO CONNECT TO THE .rpt file.
Any ideas on how i can connect the above parametres in the servlet to the rpt file.
Anyhelp greatly appreciated
