Integration into web applications

Whats the best way to present pentaho reports inside a web application from a Pentaho server? I was playing around with xactions and tried to get report information using the ServiceAction, but was having some problems. Also, I was considering not using the Pentaho server and using embedded pentaho instead.

Any advice would be helpful

Thanks!

Hi, Rob
If I understand well, you are having troubles trying to integrate your web application with Pentaho. I suggest you to post your doubts (with more detailed explanations of the errors) in the Pentaho BI Platform forum: http://forums.pentaho.org/forumdisplay.php?f=73

From the BI Server, I think there's a seperate ViewAction or similar...that's just off the top of my head though, I haven't attempted this approach just yet.

For embedded, there is a special package available to remove extraneous dependencies --

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
