how to pass parameter to call java(as url format) from crystal report?


Can any one tell me how to pass parameter to call java as url format from crystal report?

Here is the task:

One of our client requested us to come up with Reporting tools capability to retrieve Optim Archived data (Structured data with File Attachments).

In case of unstructured data/file attachments, we just need to check if the Java plug-in can be integrated(can we trigger the Java Plug-in URL from the reporting tool) with the sap crystal reporting tools.

I can retrieve optim archived data through ODBC connection in crystal report. But I am not able to fetch the attachments in crystal report which is exists in

that file. So our thought is if I pass the parameter to call java utility then through java we can access it.

Please any one help is it possible to pass parameter in url format? If so please let me know how I can achieve that?

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Sachin,

    A couple of ways to possibly make this work. Do you have a .NET Developer available?

    What you can do is create a UFL, User Function Library, that runs code to do the extraction for you in a formula.

    Search for UFL in the .NET SDK forum and you'll find a KBA on how to write one and an example for both C#, COM and Java.

    Another option is to write an Addin for CR Designer. That may or may not work for you though, all depends on processing timing...

    Also, depending on which version of Crystal you're using, you would be able to add a link to an object on the screen and use fields from your data to set parts of the URL dynamically.
