FROM THE FOREWORD by Brian Welcker, Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services
Look inside

Manning author Bret Updegraff interviewed on .Net Rocks!
Listen as Bret Updegraff, author of SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services in Action shares his expertise in SQL Reporting Services in an interview with .Net Rocks!, the internet audio show for .Net developers.

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.

about the technology

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.
