The Crystal Enterprise Architecture in Action

This section takes a look at how all the Crystal Enterprise services come together and which of the services are used when a user requests objects. Each scenario is based on the following situation: Over a corporate intranet site, a user is browsing a CSP page that connects him to a Crystal Enterprise system. The user has provided proper login credentials and is logged into Crystal Enterprise. He has been presented with a list of report objects that he has rights to access.

For this scenario to occur, a browser has connected to a Web server, and in turn the Web server passes the .CSP request to the Crystal Web connector. The Web connector then passes this request to the Web Component Server for processing. The .CSP is processed and in this scenario, the page asks the user for logon credentials and is returned to the user to complete. The credentials are submitted and passed to the Web Component Server. The Web Component Server now takes this information and attempts to log on to the APS using the security service. After the user is logged on to Crystal Enterprise, the APS is queried to present a list of folders and reports to the user. (The query is generated within the CSP page as well.) This scenario diagram can be seen in Figure 3.4.
