BusinessObjects XI Server Architecture
BusinessObjects XI is a multitier, server-based product that comprises a number of logical servers. These servers run as Windows services, and they can all be installed on one machine or distributed across multiple machines, each running multiple processors as your needs demand. In this free chapter from the book "Pro Crystal Enterprise/BusinessObjects XI Programming", author Carl Ganz examines how to manage those servers, command them programmatically, and extract information about them. He also looks at programming examples of how to work with servers and server groups.
