i-net Clear Reports

Content

The following chapters describes the various things to know when migrating from version 10.x of i-net Crystal-Clear to version 11.x of i-net Clear Reports. If you migrating from older versions of i-net Crystal-Clear then you should read the other migration information depending on the version from that you migrate.

i-net Crystal-Clear has been renamed into i-net Clear Reports

The name of version 2011 (version 11.0) is now i-net Clear Reports. Drop “Crystal”, focus on clear reports - simple name, simple yet powerful reporting: i-net Clear Reports.

Java 6 required

The i-net Designer and the i-net Clear Reports server now requires Java 6 as minimum version of the Java virtual machine. The i-net Clear Reports viewer requires Java 5.

Deprecated report URL parameters are no longer supported

The following deprecated report URL parameters are no longer supported: “dll”, “host”, “catalog”, “database”, “schema”, “user”, “url”. It is recommended to use the report URL parameter “datasource” instead.

Group Name Fields with Date format configurable

It is now possible to configure the group name field of a group on a date and/or time field in the “Property Editor” of the i-net Designer. In previous versions the group name field has displayed a string representation of the date depending on the date and/or time interval of the group. The system formats use the set time interval of the group, e.g. if the field was grouped on “each month” then the group name field contains month and year. With the custom format you can set this yourself.
