Beberapa hari ini dimilis dotnet sudah ramai berdiskusi Crystal Report di Visual Studio 2005 padahal dulu saya juga mengalami kejadian yang aneh pada Crystal Report di Visual Studio 2005 sejak versi beta. Alhasil setelah sidik-selidiknya rupanya diketemukan penyebabnya yaitu Kalau CR di VS 2005 aslinya adalah CR versi XI beta …Nah loh ? Hal ini dikarenakan lauching product VS 2005 terlambat Menurut schedule versi official CR akibatnya CR di VS 2005 Merupakan “versi beta” dari CR XI. Ini comment dari team business object:
Ini saya copy paste:
I've been seeing some confusion lately about the release of Visual Studio .NET 2005 and Crystal Reports. I wanted to provide a FAQ to clear things up.
Crystal Reports .NET 2005
First off, Crystal Reports WILL be in Visual Studio 2005. I've been hearing rumors that it won't ship with VS 2005 and this is definitely not the case. Makes me wonder who starts these rumors and if they have any knowledge whatsoever of what is really going on.
Secondly, Microsoft has announced that VS 2005 will have a “Go Live“ license. This means that even though the product is still in beta, MS is saying its okay to use it in production applications. Personally, I don't know how they can say that a product is in beta, but you can use it in production. Anyway, you will also be able to use Crystal Reports in your production applications b/c it has the same license. I've been working with a recent build of the CR.NET Beta 2 build and it is very stable. Although I don't have the list of bugs that are being worked on, I'm sure that there are things that might not work for you and it will be more stable when VS 2005 is officially released later in the year. But I assume that the same applies to VS 2005. Anyone willing to use a beta product in production has a tendency to be more on the “bleeding edge“ rather than “cutting edge“ of technology and they know the risks involved.
Crystal Reports XI
Crystal Reports XI (version 11) was recently released and people are asking how this effects CR.NET 2005 with respect to features and compatibility. The first thing you need to understand is that CR.NET 2005 is built using a version of CR 10. It takes a long time to integrate a product into the .NET IDE and fully test it according Microsoft's policies. Thus, the customization and integration of CR into VS 2005 was started before CR XI was around. Crystal Reports XI has more and newer features than CR .NET 2005 has. Even though CR.NET 2005 is being released after CR XI, it should not be considered an upgrade over CR XI. The most powerful version of Crystal Reports will always be the latest full product release.
Since CR XI is available today and VS 2005 is still in development, CR XI will not be immediately compatible with VS 2005. Business Objects will issue an upgrade to CR XI to make it compatible with VS 2005 once MS ships it. The upgrade details have not been announced yet.
I hope this clears things up for everyone. If you have any questions please post them here and I will try to address them.
