Understanding Crystal Enterprise Embedded Edition

Crystal Enterprise Embedded edition (the RAS by itself) is used in a standalone mode to deliver Crystal Report's creation, modification, and viewing functionality over the Web. In its simplest description, it can be thought of as an open Report Engine with a published object model and viewer controls. Crystal Enterprise Professional and Premium editions were introduced in Part V, “Web Report Distribution—Using Crystal Enterprise.” Each of these advanced editions of Crystal Enterprise can also leverage the powerful report exploration (creation and modification) functionality of the RAS and object model. In these advanced editions, the RAS is effectively plugged into the Crystal Enterprise infrastructure or backbone and managed as any of its other services. Figure 31.1 displays the basic RAS standalone architecture.
