Loading Report Definition from Remote path RRS feed

  • Question

  • Requirement-

    1. Use local reports to render on screen
    2. Use business tier hosted on a different server as WCF service to hold report definition.  This is to avoid end user tempering with reports and gives IT capability to add more reports without change in any other layer.
    3.  Do not use Reporting Services Server to host the report

    How can I effectively use the report template file (RDLC) in this situation.
    One option is to deserialize and store it locally as file to use it as a resource but this could also cause accidental modification of RDL template.
