.NET SDK Developer Guide publication inconsistency


I am working on creating and scheduling some publications of Crystal Reports using the .NET SDK. I'm running BO Enterprise XI 3.1. I have noticed that there are some conflicting statements within the .NET SDK Developer Guide, and I was hoping that I could get some clarification on them.

1. In the developer guide, it states that "As of this release, publications only support Desktop Intelligence documents".

2. However, the developer guide also has several examples of creating a publication containing Crystal Reports documents.

3. The Publication .NET class seems to exist only in the BusinessObjects.Enterprise.Desktop namespace - seemingly Deski specific.

4. However, I have been able to create (and schedule) a publication with a Crystal Report using this class.

So what is the SAP's official stance on this area of the .NET SDK? Is the documentation just out of date, or will I run into pitfalls later on? Is it supported or not? Any clarification would be very much appreciated. I'd like to understand any risks involved as we will be basing a large scale solution off of the publication functionality.

Thanks in advance!
