The Dynamic Duo: Crystal Xcelsius and Web Services
As a data visualization tool, Crystal Xcelsius rocks. And when combined with the power of web services, it is even better. In this session, you will learn how to connect your Crystal Xcelsius dashboards to real-time data. We'll look at how you can use Live Office to connect to your data source and refresh your data. We'll also look at creating your own custom .NET web service to provide data for your dashboard and how to create a "generic" web service to return data from your database with just a few simple parameters. And to keep things fair, we'll do the same with a JSP web service as well and show you the end-to-end integration from a web service all the way through to your Crystal Xcelsius dashboard. This presentation was given by David McAmis at the Diamond Developer Conference in 11 2006.
