Understanding Unmanaged and Managed Report Content Before Publishing to Crystal Enterprise

Crystal Enterprise provides the capability to deliver both unmanaged and managed content, or reports.

Users of Crystal Reports and the Crystal Reports Web Component Server will be familiar with the concept of unmanaged content. Previous versions of Crystal Reports included a scaled down report sharing server, also referred to as the Web Component Server, that would read .rpt files from a directory and produce output to a Web browser in a variety of formats, much like Crystal Enterprise.
