  • New Report Designer built on the Eclipse Framework – built from the ground up using Business Objects’ award winning Java Reporting Component (JRC) engine.

  • Crystal Reports Web Project- this feature enables developers to create web projects which include all of the required Crystal Reports runtime configurations.
  • JSP Page Wizard — creates custom code to do common tasks (e.g. pass in DB logon, change parameter values, change data source location, etc.) just by dragging a report onto a JSP page.
  • Deployment Assistance wizard — analyzes a report project prior to deployment to ensure that all of the required runtime libraries (e.g. database JAR files) are present.
