    I want to manually download the latest release, v1.0.3. When I go to the manual download page, it only offers me v1.0.1. How do I get the latest release? Installing the actual report designer into my eclipse is not preferred. I have a licensed running version of crystal reports and I only want the jar files contained within the current release. (It's sad to say, but the files here are more stable than ones I can obtain from any service pack or CHF.)

      I create a separate eclipse environment and download the designer then abstracted the new jar files. Pervasive appears to be working so far in my tests.

      I really wasn't requesting a full RAS SDK but the same API calls that are available in the RAS to be included in the JRC. One item that comes to mind is having access to the formula definitions just as I have access to the parameter definitions.
