Attention all developers! If you have a project that needs a BusinessObjects or Crystal Reports SDK, we have a new tool to help you choose one; the BI BusinessObjects SDK Overview dashboard!
We offer several SDK’s that enable you to customize different parts of the BI BusinessObjects product suite. Whether you have Crystal Reports, Xcelsius, Crystal Reports Server, BusinessObjects Edge or BusinessObjects Enterprise (or all of the above…) you will be able to choose an SDK to meet your needs.
We provide you with a list of products and languages to choose from, and filter this down to the SDK’s available for each product. Included is a description of each SDK, some of the tasks you can perform, the type of licensing, and in which products you can expect to find each SDK. We have also tried to demystify our licensing for you by providing a separate tab that describes the most common licensing in more detail.
Once you chose an SDK, you will be provided with a list of resources; these provide everything from support (notes, articles and fixes), to SDK documentation, to detailed product information. Each SDK comes with a Developer Guide which provides guidance and tutorials on how to use the product, and an API reference which is the full list of the methods and objects provided for each SDK.
This is the first release of this dashboard and to ensure that you find it helpful, we need all of your comments and feedback on it. Check it out and let us know what you think!
