Using Crystal Reports with PHP

P: n/a
Our company intranet is strictly PHP-based. However, one of my new projects
is to publish on-demand reports generated in Crystal Reports 9. Has anyone
done this using PHP? Like many non-open source software packages, there is
a lot of documentation on how to do this using ASP or Java, but nothing with
PHP.

I even attended a Crystal Reports seminar in hopes of getting some answers.
The response I got was: PHP? What's that? Never heard of it!

If anyone has done anything like this, I'm not looking for specifics at this
point, just wondering whether or not it can be done before investing a lot
of time and effort into this project.

Thanks!

Seems like you have two options:

1. If you run PHP on Windows, call Crystal Reports as a COM object.
2. Regardless of your OS, you should still be able to use Crystal
Reports' Web services. Learn the specs, get yourself a copy
of NuSOAP, and you should be all set...

Cheers,
