Design report outside of code?

Is there a way to pass in a report template or design into the report engine instead of building the entire design in code? JasperReports has a way of passing in report data and a design and allowing the tool to create the final report.

Does anyone know if any Business Objects SDKs support something like this?

Hello Farhat,

Currently, the way to create a Crystal Report off of a Universe is using the Crystal Reports Designer (not the Crystal Reports for Eclipse designer). That invokes the Query Panel within the Desinger, with which you interact with the Universe-based Query.

There's no programmatic way to create or modify a Universe connection in a Crystal Report.
