Hi all,
When i make a report with 2-tier, I usually do the following pattern:
Java Application(Client) <----> Database (Server)
Crystal Report <----> Store procedure
And now i must make a report with 3-tier :
Java Application(Client) <----> Middle tier(Server) <----> Database (Server)
Crystal Report <----> EJB <----> Store procedure
I have a trouble with :
Java Application(Client) <----> Middle tier(Server)
Crystal Report <----> EJB
With 3-tier ,if I don't want to use store procedure, and I want to use EJB to make report with Crystal Report.
Can you help me ?

Firstly I did not try Crystal Report with Java. so I don't know the solution. But I have tried the free open souce tool: jfreereport-0.8.4_6. The tool can help you make a professional report based on XML. You can search it in GOOGLE. You can take a try.
If you find the Crystal Report solution , please share with us.
