Crystal reports in Biztalk Server

Wednesday, August 17, 2011
Q:
After the main processing in my Orchestration at the end I need to kick off a Crystal Report in Crystal Enterprise Server. How might I do that in BT?

Ans:

Well I do not think there is a direct way to kick off a Crystal Report through an adapter, but you can go for an indirect approach as in consuming crystal report webservice(s). An example of publishing an crystal report as web service is found in this code project article. I conclude from this article that crystal report can be published as a web service. BizTalk can consume web services so this opens a door for you to kick of a report.
