Migration From Crystal Reports

Hi all

I'm in need of some help from the experts;)

My company is seriously considering migrating from Crystal Reports to Jasper Reports.

Our major obstacle is the 900+ reports that we have already developed in Crystal and now need to try convert/migrate

As it stands we are already going to have to open each report with the crystal developer and then save it in the new format.

So as far as we are concerned now would be the perfect time to migrate, as there is going to be some work involved regardless.

I recently read a reply by Sherman Wood on a thread/article on The Server Side

http://www.theserverside.com/news/thread.tss?thread_id=46626


His reply is as follows:


Automated conversion of .RPTs is against the Crystal EULA. It is a manual task to convert a .RPT design to .JRXML, but relatively easy.

Could somebody follow this up for me, what does he mean?
Does he mean that rewriting the reports would be easy, or is he saying that there is a method to convert the reports?

Or am i just missing the blatantly obvious... :blush:

Is there really no means of migrating reports to Jasper?

I would love to see a tool which converts the Crystal report XML file to a Jaspersoft jrXML file.
