Reporting Services Extensibility

Reporting Services Extensibility

SQL Server 2000

Reporting Services is a full-featured reporting platform implemented as a Web service. The client tools and extensions included with Reporting Services use the same interfaces available to developers for building third-party applications. Developers can extend Reporting Services in the following ways:

  • Create applications to manage a report server by using a Simple Access Object Protocol (SOAP) interface.
  • Create applications or use Web browsers to manipulate report output through URLs.
  • Create applications to configure a report server through Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) classes.
  • Create additional rendering, delivery, security, and data processing extensions by using the Microsoft .NET Framework.
  • Create Report Definition Language (RDL) files that can include custom elements.
