This programming guide contains information about FastReport VCL library's extension. This extension allows to build reports on client-server technology with using of standard FastReport VCL components and additional components (that are intended for organization of interaction between client and server).
This guide describes the structure of client components and server components, their properties and methods, as well as architecture of a report server and the principles of its functioning. Furthermore, it gives recommendations concerning optimization and usage of new capabilities in already existing applications and those developed anew.
The experienced FastReport VCL users will be interested in recommendations about increasing server components' speed, optimization of reports for their correct export to various tabular formats, application of rules of information safety for application protection from non-authorized access.
We have been constantly improving the FastReport VCL Enterprise components. That is why there is a probability that some capabilities are not mentioned in this manual. Descriptions of all changes will be necessarily included to the next version of this manual.
