Diffent result in CR Developer and CR4Eclipse when using "Custom Functions"


Our customer create reports with CR Developer Version (CR XI) on Windows Environment.

In this reports "Custom Functions" with Basic Syntax are used.

We are creating an application with using CR4Eclipse ( in MANIFEST.MF/Version in JAR Files)

on Unix Aix 5.3., Java: Classic VM (build 1.4.2, J2RE 1.4.2 IBM AIX build ca142-20080122 (SR10)

--> makes the follwing steps:

- ...

- ..

- paramFieldController.setCurrentValue ...with values

- Export to pdf

For the connection to the database we are using jdbc. (ojdbc14.jar, ojdbc14_g.jar) (Oracle Database)

In some cases we get different results using the reports native from Windows Enviroment and under CR4Eclipse on Unix, when we are using "Custom Functions" with Basic Syntax

The differences are (Naitive Call is always ok, but in CR4E ):

- Different result from "Custom Functions" (for example: Dupplication of charater in result of function)


- The report did not return after statement

... reportClientDoc.getPrintOutputController().export(ReportExportFormat.PDF);

Is it not posible to use "Custom Function" with Basic Syntax under CR4E?

Or are there differences in initalization/definition of variables. (String / Number Fields in BASIC-Syntax)

I hope you can give me an idea for solve this problem.

In case you need more information please tell me.

I would suggest you to upgrade to CR XI R1 or R2

CR4E has backword compatibilty i.e. only supports CR XI R1(11.5) and CR XI R2(11.8)
