SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services in Action helps you build and manage flexible reporting solutions and develop report-enabled applications. In this clear, well-illustrated book, you'll follow a report from creation to publication. Along the way you'll explore flexible delivery options like web-based, on-demand, and subscribed reports — complete with cool new features like direct printing and client-side sorting.
For applications that require custom reporting, you'll learn to define reports with RDL and push them to the Report Server using the Report Manager Web Service API. You'll also see how to write server extensions to expand the range of data processing and report delivery options.
Reports are the lifeline of business, so a good reporting environment is a big deal. With a powerful tool like Microsoft Reporting Services, .NET developers can add reporting to any type of application, regardless of its target platform or development language. Greatly improved for SQL Server 2005, Reporting Services now provides tighter integration with SQL Server, improved developer tools, and an expanded array of options to empower end users.
This book is a revised edition of Microsoft Reporting Services in Action by Teo Lachev, Manning, 2004.
