currently i perform some tests with the reporting features but i have some questions about the licensing the exact differences etc.
I have a Windows Service as Server and as client a WPF Application. The communication works over two Web-Services (one for each side). This architecture is well tested and works very fine for our purposes.
Lets go to the questions:
- i want to have the reports on all clients. The delivery of the reports should perform from my own Windows Service. Is it possible to implement a simple Webservice to render and manage the reports on the server side? Is the documented REST/WCF Reporting-Service the right one to choose? Or do we have to buy the report server as well?
- I want to use the Standalone Report designer for creating and administrating the reports. Is it possible to connect the ReportDesigner to the above mentioned Webservice?
