CRJ SDK

Hi! The "Crystal Report Java runtime component" is available as a separate download to "SAP Crystal Reports, Version for Eclipse". So where can I find the javadoc for the API and the Development Guide for the 12.2.216 release of the runtime libraries?

    Just some advice for those of you who are new to SAP and are looking for the supporting documentation to the SAP Crystal Reports runtime engine.

    If you don't use Eclipse as their primary IDE for java development or you are using Eclipse on a non-Windows operating system then you will be better off downloading the All-In-One Installation as it contains all the documentation, including the Designer Guide, the Development Guide, and the SDK Reference - both current and legacy runtime libraries. The All-In-One Installation runs only on Windows, but the SAP Crystal Reports runtime engine is cross-platform.

    If you do use Eclipse and are on Windows don't both with trying to do a Manual Install as it's too hard work trying to get all the dependencies resolved, especially if you are using a newer Eclipse release than the version available in the All-In-One Installation.

    I don't normally work with CR for Eclipse, but I am told that the help files essentially become part of Eclipse once CR for E is installed(?).

    Other than that, have a look at the following:

    • Confusing as heck I know.

      In a nutshell, the first release of Cr that worked with Java was the JRC. This is no longer supported. Then the powers that be came out with Crystal Reports for Eclipse and that got re-branded to SAP Crystal Reports, Version for Eclipse. The two are pretty well interchangeable and SAP Crystal Reports, Version for Eclipse is based on CR 2008 (12.x).
