  • User-1778011532 posted

    Dear All,

    My web application need to generate report from SSRS Report. I found 2 approach for this.

    1. Reportviewer  

    2. ReportExecutionService

    Would you tell me which one is best from all aspect (Maintanance, Performance, etc)

    I think ReportExecution service need to be chnaged If we migrate to next SQL Server Version where report viewer control need not.

    Which is better for performance?

    Is there any other way, which gives better performance.

    Kindly guide me on this

    Thanks and Regards

    So far as I know, web form viewers and windows form viewers both can host Report Web Services:

    • Host a Crystal Report in HTML format on the Web.
    • Dynamically update the report they are hosting.
    • Interact with controls within a Web application.

    The Microsoft report viewer control is easy to use, easy to deploy, easy to develop. I suggest using report viewer.

    For more information about report viewer control, please refer to the links below:



    Hope it's useful for you.

    Best Regards,

    The simplest is to use the Report Manager website that is enabled by default with an SSRS installation .
