Welcome to Crystal Reports for Eclipse

Welcome to the Crystal Reports for Eclipse Blog. It is with great pleasure that we announced today our membership as an Add-on Member of the Eclipse Foundation. We also announced today Crystal Reports for Eclipse. We will be releasing for download a preview version of Crystal Reports for Eclipse in calendar Q4. We welcome you to register today and we will let you know when you can start to download Crystal Reports for Eclipse.

Crystal Reports has a long history with the Developer Community going back even before the 1st bundle of Crystal Reports for Visual Basic over 10 years ago. We have stayed committed to the Developer Community and as the market has moved we have worked to follow the changing needs of developers. Inclusion of Crystal Reports® for Visual Studio .NET, Crystal Reports for Borland JBuilder, Crystal Reports® for IBM® Rational® Application Developer for WebSphere® Software (RAD), Crystal Reports® for BEA Weblogic Workshop and now our 100% Java version of Crystal Reports® for Eclipse provides the broadest IDE coverage for Java / .NET / and web services developers.

Whether you have existing Crystal Reports you want to leverage in your applications or you are wanting to build new reports for your application you will have the flexibility to do this with Crystal Reports for Eclipse. You will be able to leverage the preview to be able to quickly build a variety of reports without having to leave the Eclipse IDE. Crystal Reports for Eclipse has a rich set of functionality for the developer that will enable you to drag and drop fields, text objects, formula fields, cross tabs, charts, picture, boarders, and sub reports on to the canvas of the report. Whether it is a column reports of a sophisticated output you have the power and the flexibility to do this.

Over the coming months you will see lots of news as we make Crystal Reports for Eclipse available in the preview and get feedback from the community. I personally look forward to getting your feedback on Crystal Reports for Eclipse, as well as your suggestions on what we can do at Business Objects to better support you in building your applications.
