Overview of the Crystal Reports Java Reporting Component

Business Objects has had a commitment to Java developers for quite some time. Crystal Reports version 9 included a Java edition of the Report Application Server Software Development Kit (SDK), and Crystal Enterprise version 8.5 had a Java edition of the Crystal Enterprise SDK. Both of these solutions consisted of a processing tier of non–Java-based services and then an application tier of Java-based objects that acted as the entry point to those services. The theme here was around multitier, large-scale, enterprise applications. This might sound quite natural to some Java developers, who would argue that's what Java is for.

In the version 10 suite of products, the Report Application Server and corresponding Java SDK have been moved out of the Crystal Reports product line and into the Crystal Enterprise product line. This makes it clear that all servers are part of the Crystal Enterprise offering. However, without any other changes this would leave the Crystal Reports product without any Java-based developer components. Because developers have always been important to Business Objects—especially Java developers—the Business Objects folks have spent a significant amount of time building a new offering in version 10 for Java developers: the Crystal Reports Java Reporting Component.
