The question about nested datawindows for web apps got me thinking... how
does Sybase plan to market this product? As a competitor to Crystal
Reports? Because Crystal has nested reports for web apps, though it doesn't
work that great with .NET if you have MS SQL Server (security issues).

I have my own agenda, because I want to publish a nested report on part of
our web site, and I'd really like to do it with dw.net. I'm willing to wait
for Sybase to work out the bugs, I just wondered what the goal was.

thanks,
Pat

We plan to market it as an alternative to the datagrid, and as a
competitor to Infragistics grid controls and Crystal Reports. We see
one of DataWindow .NET's competitive advantages is that it is one
control that can be used both for reporting and data entry.

We are working on implementing support for nested reports in web form
applications.

That's what I was hoping you'd say, I want dw.net to take on both of those
products. I could see dw.net blowing them out of the water. I'm amazed
that there aren't more 3rd parties trying to get into that market.

thanks,
Pat

It might have something to do with United States Patent 5,566,330:

=====
October 15, 1996
Method for forming a reusable and modifiable database interface object

Abstract
A program object providing an interface between a computer database
manager and a client application program external to the interface
object. The interface object includes associations between columns of
the table and associated editing styles, a retrieve method, and an
update method. Each editing style specifies a display format for data
of the associated column. The column/style associations specify
modifying methods for modifying data of respective columns of the
table. The interface object is programmed to allow an applications
programmer using the interface object to tailor the column/style
associations to the database table without access to source code of
the interface object. The retrieve method accepts an invocation
message from the client program, and uses the column/style
associations to issue commands to the database manager to retrieve
data from the database into a buffer maintained by and within the
interface object. The modifying methods accept directives to modify
the retrieved data in the buffer and store a transcript of
corresponding modification directives. The update method uses the
column/style associations and the modification directives of the
transcript to issue commands to the database manager to update the
data of the database table in accordance with the modification
directives.
