I have a requirement to support reports built using Crystal Reports which need to be severed in BI solution using Pentaho framework. Do Crystal reports have similar integration points as Jasper?

However I didn’t see any reference to Crystal Reports on Pentaho website.

Thanks,
Subbu

Subbu-

We do not have Crystal Reports software in house at Pentaho and we wouldn't be able to distribute a working version of Pentaho which uses Crystal software, but it would be possible for us to provide a compiled version of a "CrystalReportComponent" which could link against Crystal Reports libraries.

To easily integrate your Crystal Reporting with Pentaho I would suggest that you study the JasperReportComponent and the BIRTReportComponent as these are fairly simplistic for normal usage. You, or someone else, can then develop a component that can serve Crystal Reports in the Pentaho platform.

This would be a great contribution from our community if there is any interest out there. I can provide some assistance with the platform integration, but again, we do not have any Crystal Reports software to develop and test against.

Hi!

We are also interested in integrating Crystal Reports in Pentaho.
When we start developing I'll be here more often. Hope to find some good news!

+1 here, would be great for migration from other reporting platforms but still maintain existing (already invested) reporting tools and training.
