Using the HTML5 Viewer in MVC applications and binding data.
In MVC architectures data can be transferred between views and controllers via model. A frequently asked question is how to use the modified data object for reports displayed by the HTML5 Viewer.
In general, the HTML5 Viewer and Reporting REST service use a client-server architecture, for which the project with the HTML5 Viewer appears as a client for the Reporting REST service, even if the service is added in the same project as the viewer.
The HTML5 Viewer sends only short JSON serialized string messages to the Reporting REST Service, which messages include details what report and resources to be processed and rendered on the server, and then delivered to the client by the service.
The HTML5 Viewer is not designed to transfer big data objects in requests to the server in MVC standard.
