Crystal report from JSP using the JRC


Hi, I am trying to call crystal report from JSP using the JRC.
But i am getting the Error as 'Logon Failed'. my web.xml entry is
i am setting the userid and password in the code. Please see the below code for your reference. Please help me to solve the issue.
<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html;charset=UTF-8"%>
<%@ page import=""%>
<%@ page import="*"%>
<%@ page import="com.crystaldecisions.reports.reportengineinterface.JPEReportSourceFactory" %>
<%@ page import="" %>
<%@ page import="" %>
<%@ page import="com.crystaldecisions.reports.reportengineinterface.JPEReportSource" %>
<title>Crystal Report with Database Logon information</title> </head>
<body bgcolor="#ffffff">
String report = "/TEMPLATE.rpt";
IReportSourceFactory2 rptSrcFactory = new JPEReportSourceFactory();
JPEReportSource reportSource = (JPEReportSource) rptSrcFactory.createReportSource(report, request.getLocale());
CrystalReportViewer viewer = new CrystalReportViewer();
IConnectionInfo newConnInfo = new ConnectionInfo();
ConnectionInfos newConnInfos = new ConnectionInfos();
out.println("Connection Information: "+viewer.getDatabaseLogonInfos().getConnectionInfo(0).getAttributes().toString());
viewer.processHttpRequest(request, response, getServletConfig().getServletContext(),null);
catch(Exception e)
throw new JspException( e);


I never really had much luck with this approach.
Mind you I was using Crystal Reports 10, and as far as I recall it didn't allow setting/changing of database at this level.
Things to check
- can you create a database connection on your page with this URL/username/password?
- what server are you using? Tomcat? WebLogic?
I found this in your other post:
Connection Information: {Server Name=ee6rpt, Connection String=DSN=s(ee6rpt);User ID=s(ee62test);Password=;UseDSNProperties=b(false), Database Name=, Database DLL=crdb_odbc.dll}That would indicate it is using odbc to connect to the database (crdb_odbc.dll). ODBC is a bad idea with java.
The way I have got it to work for me (after much trial and error) was to in Crystal Reports to connect using the Oracle Driver, and specifying a tnsname - eg define REPORT_DS in tnsnames.ora.
When running through the JRC, it looked for a JNDI datasource under that same name "REPORT_DS".
Don't know if that will help you or not.
Good luck,
