Can Crystal Reports XI be used with ColdFusion? I have seen some people who have said no and that Crystal Reports offers no support for ColdFusion and then I have seen people who have said yes, using cfreport.

I am currently using Crystal Reports Server XI R2 for Windows Server 2003 R2 and Crystal Reports Developer XI R2.

    Crystal Reports does not currently have any support for Cold Fusion. At one time we did include something that allowed users to embed a tag in their Cold Fusion code for viewing a report, but we no longer do this.

    That being said, what you COULD do is to embed an openDocument link into your Cold Fusion application. The openDocument link allows you to view reports that are stored on Crystal Reports Server, using a URL with the id of the report and the logon token to the enterprise system embedded in the URL. Since you have CR Server installed, you could potentially use this method if you are storing reports in your managed environment.

    For more information on viewing reports using openDocument, have a look in the Developer Library:

    in the BusinessObjects Enterprise SDK, Java Developer Guide, Viewing Reports and Documents using URL's section.

    One thing to keep in mind if you use this type of environment is that you will need to ensure you appropriately manage your Enterprise licenses.
