Synopses & Reviews
Serving as a guide to the functionality provided by Reporting Services, this book teaches developers to add reporting to any Internet or web services-capable application, regardless of its targeted platform and development language. Following the report life cycle's logical path, the book explains how to author, manage, and run RS reports. Aimed at .NET developers who plan to fully utilize this product's features to add reporting capabilities to Windows Forms or web-based applications, this guide will also benefit developers who target other platforms but want to integrate their applications with RS because of its service-oriented architecture. The accompanying code samples are written in C# and Visual Studio .NET 2003 and many sample reports are included to demonstrate all aspects of report authoring.
