Does Crystal reports suit my needs?

Hy, i'm a Linux PHP developer and my client needs a report engine for his web system.

I've heard a lot about SAP Crystal reports and i'm here to ask you guys the following =)

  1. Can i setup Crystal Reports in a linux/PHP server?
  2. If so, is there any special requirements? (jdk, tomcat etc)
  3. Can i make a server request and generate a report (fill a previously made template with data) dynamically and show it on a web browser?
  4. Can i establish a connection between a desktop app and a server app of Crystal Report? (for syncing reasons)

Please, help me! hahahha

Thanks in advance!

    The Crystal Reports report design application will only run on Windows.  However, there is a Java SDK available that will run on Linux.  I don't know about using it with PHP, however.  If this will be a web app, you'll need to deploy it to some sort of web application server, such as Tomcat.
