Crystal reports alternative
Posted on 2006-06-20
We are developing a web front-end to our customer database (MSSQL) using JSP. I am very familiar with Crystal reports 8.5 and 9. I have written many reports for an internal application. I want to be able to easily convert some of the 1000+ reports for the web. I have heard that Crystal has some very expensive licensing requirements for web deployment. Is there an alternative that is similar in functionality, has a conversion utility, and is relatively low cost? I don't want to have to pay $10k for a reporting solution, but I also realize that it won't be just 50 bucks.
