What are you using the Crystal Report for? Are you trying to view the report over a browser? If so, did you install the Crystal Reports Web Component Server & the Web Viewer? If you did, did you try to see if the samples work? The samples are at "http://hostname/scrsamples".
Check these things first and then you should be able to call the report like "http://hostname/somereport.rpt." If there are parameters passed to the report, there are other steps involved. I don't exactly remember but i thing you need to pass it as part of the query string (ex/ "http://hostname/somereport.rpt?param1=value1").

Hello there,
As far crystal report is concerned, it comes in different flavours, one which I tried is CR server component called from ASP on IIS. Firstly .jsp is called which then redirects to ASP page (eg one from samples, generally in Program Files\Seagate Software\Crystal Reports\Samples\Code\Web\Active Server Pages\sample.asp) running on IIS. This ASP page creates CR server instance & generates report which jsp has posted as querystring.
The problem with combination is u'll need to deploy it on MS only. CR server is supported on MS only, not on unix/linux. If now if it is available, let me also know.
Here are steps to be followed:
1) .jsp?param=... : from weblogic check out community.seagatesoftware.com.
2) redirect it to iis/pws which can run asp & create server component.
3) that .asp page
4) thats it!
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
