Crystal Reports for Eclipse plugin and CR XI server
I have a software requirement in which I need to support both internal (CR Eclipse plugin using the report viewer, not sure what the real name of this is) along with external (CR XI server) reporting. In other words, I should be able to display a report (.rpt) that exists on my local app server along with one that exists on the CR XI server. My question is this:
So I have both sets of jar libraries (eclipse plugin and XI server) and I see that some of the them are overlapping (some of the jars have the same name). For the ones that overlap, should I choose the ecilipse plugin or XI server ones...?
One example I found is that the eclipse plugin rasapp.jar contains the POJOResultSetHelper class whereas the rasapp.jar from the XI server does not. In this case, I presume I should use the eclipse version, right?
Thanks for your help!

The in-process RAS SDK contained within Crystal Reports for Eclipse is currently forked from RAS server.
Not recommended or tested here to go against CR Server or BusinessObjects Enterprise with the CR4E JRC jars.
I've seen cases where someone unintentionally introduced CR4E jars into their RAS app, and it broke the app badly.
