Anyone here knows a simple/basic tutorial where a java application/bean interfaces to a rpt file (crystal report)? I am new to crystal report, so i dont have any idea how. Also, how can crystal report access a database? can a java code provide the information or sql statement to be used by crystal report?

I dont know if this is the right thread to post this question. forgive me if im on the wrong thread. thanks everyone =)

Sorry, I'm actually using the first resource that I shown you, not the Crystal Report. So can't really give you much help in it. But since you've the software, won't you have the user manual/guides? Perhaps you'll be able to get some examples from there?

No problem. I really appreciate your answers.

I cant seem to find that much resource in regards to crystal report. and i have downloaded some document from business objects, but there technical papers are not that informative, and sometimes misleading.

Do you know of any website where i can set a starting point to learn about java interfacing to crystal report?

Frankly speaking, other than the product's website, I don't know of any other better place.
