19 BusinessObjects Enterprise Architecture chapter

20 2 BusinessObjects Enterprise Architecture Overview Overview This section introduces BusinessObjects Enterprise administrators to the architecture of BusinessObjects Enterprise. This section coversthe following topics: Architecture basics Client tier Intelligence tier Processing tier Data tier Report viewers Information flow For faster navigation, click on the title of the topic you are interested in. Architecture basics BusinessObjects Enterprise is a multi-tier system. Although the components are responsible for different tasks, they can be logically grouped based on the type of work they perform. If you are new to BusinessObjects Enterprise, use this section to gain familiarity with the BusinessObjects Enterprise framework, its components, and the general tasks that each component performs. In BusinessObjects Enterprise, there are five tiers: The client tier The application tier The intelligence tier The processing tier The data tier To provide flexibility, reliability, and scalability, the components that make up each of these tiers can be installed on one machine, or spread across many. The following diagram illustrates how each of the components fits within the multi-tier system. Other Business Objects products plug in to the BusinessObjects Enterprise framework in various ways. This section describes the framework itself. Consult each product s installation or administration guides for details about how it integrates with the BusinessObjects Enterprise framework. 20 BusinessObjects Enterprise Administrator s Guide

21 BusinessObjects Enterprise Architecture Architecture basics 2 The servers run as services on Windows machines. On UNIX, the servers run as daemons. These services can be vertically scaled to take full advantage of the hardware that they are running on, and they can be horizontally scaled to take advantage of multiple computers over a network environment. This means that the services can all run on the same machine, or they can run on separate machines. The same service can also run in multiple instances on a single machine. For example, you can run the CMS and the Event Server on one machine, while you run the Report Application Server on a separate machine. This configuration is called horizontal scaling. If the Report Application Server is BusinessObjects Enterprise Administrator s Guide 21

22 2 BusinessObjects Enterprise Architecture Client tier Client tier running on a multi-processor computer, then you may choose to run multiple Report Application Servers on it. This configuration is called vertical scaling. The important thing to understand is that, even though these are called servers, they are actually services and daemons that do not need to run on separate computers. Tip: When you are familiar with the architecture and want to customize your system configuration, see the BusinessObjects Enterprise Deployment and Configuration Guide. Note: BusinessObjects Enterprise supports reports created in versions 6 through XI of Crystal Reports. Once published to BusinessObjects Enterprise, reports are saved, processed, and displayed in version XI format. The client tier is the only part of the BusinessObjects Enterprise system that administrators and end users interact with directly. This tier is made up of the applications that enable people to administer, publish, and view reports and other objects. InfoView The client tier includes: InfoView Central Management Console (CMC) Central Configuration Manager (CCM) Publishing Wizard Import Wizard For faster navigation, click on the title of the topic you are interested in. BusinessObjects Enterprise comes with InfoView, a web-based interface that end users access to view, schedule, and keep track of published reports. Each BusinessObjects Enterprise request that a user makes is directed to the BusinessObjects Enterprise application tier. In.NET InfoView, the web server forwards the user request directly to an application server where the request 22 BusinessObjects Enterprise Administrator s Guide

23 BusinessObjects Enterprise Architecture Client tier 2 is processed by the Web Component Adapter (WCA); typically, InfoView only uses the WCA when OLAP is installed. In this case, the web server will forward the.csp request to the WCA for processing. InfoView also serves as a demonstration of the ways in which you can use the BusinessObjects Enterprise Software Development Kit (SDK) to create a custom web application for end users. In the case of.net, InfoView also demonstrates how you can use the BusinessObjects Enterprise.NET Server Components. For more information, see the developer documentation available on your product CD. Central Management Console (CMC) The Central Management Console (CMC) allows you to perform user management tasks such as setting up authentication and adding users and groups. It also allows you to publish, organize, and set security levels for all of your BusinessObjects Enterprise content. Additionally, the CMC enables you to manage servers and create server groups. Because the CMC is a webbased application, you can perform all of these administrative tasks remotely..the CMC also serves as a demonstration of the ways in which you can use the administrative objects and libraries in the BusinessObjects Enterprise SDK to create custom web applications for administering BusinessObjects Enterprise. For more information, see the developer documentation available on your product CD. Central Configuration Manager (CCM) Publishing Wizard The Central Configuration Manager (CCM) is a server-management tool that allows you to configure each of your BusinessObjects Enterprise server components. This tool allows you to start, stop, enable, and disable servers, and it allows you to view and to configure advanced server settings. On Windows, these settings include default port numbers, CMS database and clustering details, SOCKS server connections, and more. In addition, on Windows the CCM allows you to add or remove servers from your BusinessObjects Enterprise system. On UNIX, some of these functions are performed using other tools. The Publishing Wizard is a locally installed Windows application that enables both administrators and end users to add reports to BusinessObjects Enterprise. By assigning object rights to BusinessObjects Enterprise folders, BusinessObjects Enterprise Administrator s Guide 23

24 2 BusinessObjects Enterprise Architecture Application tier Import Wizard you control who can publish reports and where they can publish them to. The Publishing Wizard publishes reports from a Windows machine to BusinessObjects Enterprise servers running on Windows or on UNIX. For more information, see Chapter 13: Publishing Objects to BusinessObjects Enterprise. The Import Wizard is a locally installed Windows application that guides administrators through the process of importing users, groups, reports, and folders from an existing BusinessObjects Enterprise, Crystal Enterprise, or Crystal Info implementation to BusinessObjects Enterprise. The Import Wizard runs on Windows, but you can use it to import information into a new BusinessObjects Enterprise system running on Windows or on UNIX. For more information, see the BusinessObjects Enterprise Installation Guide. Application tier The application tier hosts the server-side components that process requests from the client tier as well as the components that communicate these requests to the appropriate server in the intelligence tier. The application tier includes support for report viewing and logic to understand and direct web requests to the appropriate BusinessObjects Enterprise server in the intelligence tier. For both the Java and.net platforms, the application tier includes the following components: Application server and BusinessObjects Enterprise SDK Web Component Adapter (WCA) 24 BusinessObjects Enterprise Administrator s Guide

25 BusinessObjects Enterprise Architecture Application tier 2 Note: In Crystal Enterprise 10 on Windows, the communication between the web server and the application server was handled through the Web Connector; the functionality of the Web Component Adapter (WCA) was provided through the Web Component Server (WCS). In BusinessObjects Enterprise XI, the web server communicates directly with the application server and the WCA handles the WCS functionality, both on Windows and Unix platforms. Application server and BusinessObjects Enterprise SDK BusinessObjects Enterprise systems that use the BusinessObjects Enterprise Java SDK or the BusinessObjects Enterprise.NET SDK run on a third party application server. See the Platforms.txt file included with your product distribution for a complete list of tested application servers and version requirements. The application server acts as the gateway between the web server and the rest of the components in BusinessObjects Enterprise. The application server is responsible for processing requests from your browser. It also supports InfoView and other Business Objects applications, and uses the SDK to convert report pages (.epf files) to HTML format when users view pages with a DHTML viewer. Web Component Adapter (WCA) The web server communicates directly with the application server that hosts the BusinessObjects Enterprise SDK. The Web Component Adapter (WCA) runs within the application server and provides all services that are not directly supported by the BusinessObjects Enterprise SDK. The web server passes requests directly to the application server, which then forwards the requests on to the WCA. The WCA has two primary roles: It processes ASP.NET (.aspx) and Java Server Pages (.jsp) files It also supports Business Objects applications such as the CMC (CMC) and Crystal report viewers (that are implemented through viewrpt.aspx requests). Note: In Crystal Enterprise 10 on Windows, the communication between the web server and the application server was handled through the Web Connector; the functionality of the Web Component Adapter (WCA) was provided through the Web Component Server (WCS). In BusinessObjects Enterprise XI, the web server communicates directly with the application server and the WCA handles the WCS functionality, both on Windows and Unix platforms. BusinessObjects Enterprise Administrator s Guide 25

26 2 BusinessObjects Enterprise Architecture Application tier Web development platforms BusinessObjects Enterprise supports the following web development platforms: Java platform Windows.NET platform Java platform All UNIX installations of BusinessObjects Enterprise include a Web Component Adapter (WCA). In this configuration, a Java application server is required to host the WCA and the BusinessObjects Enterprise Java SDK. The use of a web server is optional as you may choose to have static content hosted by the application server. Windows.NET platform BusinessObjects Enterprise installations that use the.net Framework include Primary Interop Assemblies (PIAs) that allow you to use the BusinessObjects Enterprise.NET SDK with ASP.NET, and a set of.net Server Components that you can optionally use to simplify the development of custom applications. This configuration requires the use of a Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) web server. Note: In Crystal Enterprise 10 on Windows, the communication between the web server and the application server was handled through the Web Connector; the functionality of the Web Component Adapter (WCA) was provided through the Web Component Server (WCS). In BusinessObjects Enterprise XI, the web server communicates directly with the application server and the WCA handles the WCS functionality, both on Windows and Unix platforms. You do not need a Web Component Adapter for custom ASP.NET applications. Web application environments BusinessObjects Enterprise supports Java Server Pages (.jsp) and ASP.NET (.aspx) pages. BusinessObjects Enterprise includes web applications developed in.aspx, such as InfoView and the sample applications available via the BusinessObjects Enterprise Launchpad. Java Server Pages (.jsp) and ASP.NET (.aspx) pages allow you to develop cross-platform J2EE and ASP.NET applications that use the BusinessObjects Enterprise SDKs in conjunction with third party APIs. 26 BusinessObjects Enterprise Administrator s Guide

27 BusinessObjects Enterprise Architecture Intelligence tier 2 Note: For backward compatibility, BusinessObjects Enterprise continues to support Crystal Server Pages (.csp) and Active Server Pages (.asp). BusinessObjects Enterprise also includes Primary Interop Assemblies (PIAs) that enable you to use the BusinessObjects Enterprise SDK and Report Application Server SDK with ASP.NET. It also includes a set of.net Server Components which simplify development of custom BusinessObjects Enterprise applications in ASP.NET. For more information, see the developer documentation available on your product CD. Intelligence tier The intelligence tier manages the BusinessObjects Enterprise system. It maintains all of the security information, sends requests to the appropriate servers, manages audit information, and stores report instances. The intelligence tier includes the following components: Central Management Server (CMS) Event Server File Repository Servers Cache Server Central Management Server (CMS) The CMS is responsible for maintaining a database of information about your BusinessObjects Enterprise system, which other components can access as required. The data stored by the CMS includes information about users and groups, security levels, BusinessObjects Enterprise content, and servers. The CMS also maintains the BusinessObjects Enterprise Repository, and a separate audit database of information about user actions. This data allows the CMS to perform its four main tasks: Maintaining security BusinessObjects Enterprise Administrator s Guide 27

28 2 BusinessObjects Enterprise Architecture Intelligence tier By maintaining a database of users and their associated object rights, the CMS enforces who has access to BusinessObjects Enterprise and the types of tasks they are able to perform. These tasks include enforcing and maintaining the licensing policy of your BusinessObjects Enterprise system. Managing objects The CMS keeps track of the location of objects and maintains the containment hierarchy, which includes folders, categories, and inboxes. By communicating with the Job Servers and Program Job Servers, the CMS is able to ensure that scheduled jobs run at the appropriate times. Managing servers By staying in frequent contact with each of the servers in the system, the CMS is able to maintain a list of server status. Report viewers access this list, for instance, to identify which Cache Server is free to use for a report viewing request. Managing auditing By collecting information about user actions from each BusinessObjects Enterprise server, and then writing these records to a central audit database, the CMS acts as the system auditor. This audit information allows system administrators to better manage their BusinessObjects Enterprise deployment. Typically, you provide the CMS with database connectivity and credentials when you install BusinessObjects Enterprise, so the CMS can create its own system database and BusinessObjects Enterprise Repository database using your organization s preferred database server. For details about setting up CMS databases, see the BusinessObjects Enterprise Installation Guide. See the Platforms.txt file included with your product distribution for a complete list of tested database software and version requirements. Note: It is strongly recommended that you back up the CMS system database, and the audit database frequently. The backup procedure depends upon your database software. If you are unsure of the procedure, consult with your database administrator. The CMS database should not be accessed directly. System information should only be retrieved using the calls that are provided in the BusinessObjects Enterprise Software Development Kit (SDK). For more information, see the developer documentation available on your product CD. 28 BusinessObjects Enterprise Administrator s Guide

29 BusinessObjects Enterprise Architecture Intelligence tier 2 Event Server You can access the audit database directly to create custom audit reports. See the BusinessObjects Enterprise Auditor s Guide for more information. On Windows, the Setup program can install and configure its own Microsoft Data Engine (MSDE) database if necessary. MSDE is a client/server data engine that provides local data storage and is compatible with Microsoft SQL Server. If you already have the MSDE or SQL Server installed, the installation program uses it to create the CMS system database. You can migrate your default CMS system database to a supported database server later. For details about configuring the CMS, its system database, and CMS clusters, see the BusinessObjects Enterprise Deployment and Configuration Guide. For more information about Auditing, see the BusinessObjects Enterprise Auditor s Guide. The Event Server manages file-based events. When you set up a file-based event within BusinessObjects Enterprise, the Event Server monitors the directory that you specified. When the appropriate file appears in the monitored directory, the Event Server triggers your file-based event: that is, the Event Server notifies the CMS that the file-based event has occurred. The CMS then starts any jobs that are dependent upon your file-based event. After notifying the CMS of the event, the Event Server resets itself and again monitors the directory for the appropriate file. When the file is newly created in the monitored directory, the Event Server again triggers your file-based event. Note: Schedule-based events, and custom events are managed by the CMS. File Repository Servers There is an Input and an Output File Repository Server in every BusinessObjects Enterprise implementation. The Input File Repository Server manages all of the report objects and program objects that have been published to the system by administrators or end users (using the Publishing Wizard, the CMC, the Import Wizard, or a Business Objects designer component such as Crystal Reports or the Web Intelligence Java or HTML Report Panels). Tip: If you use the BusinessObjects Enterprise SDK, you can also publish reports from within your own code. BusinessObjects Enterprise Administrator s Guide 29

30 2 BusinessObjects Enterprise Architecture Processing tier Cache Server Processing tier The Output File Repository Server manages all of the report instances generated by the Report Job Server or the Web Intelligence Report Server, and the program instances generated by the Program Job Server. The File Repository Servers are responsible for listing files on the server, querying for the size of a file, querying for the size of the entire file repository, adding files to the repository, and removing files from the repository. Note: The Input and Output File Repository Servers cannot share the same directories. This is because one of the File Repository Servers could then delete files and directories belonging to the other. In larger deployments, there may be multiple Input and Output File Repository Servers, for redundancy. In this case, all Input File Repository Servers must share the same directory. Likewise, all Output File Repository Servers must share a directory. Objects with files associated with them, such as text files, Microsoft Word files, or PDFs, are stored on the Input File Repository Server. The Cache Server is responsible for handling all report viewing requests. The Cache Server checks whether or not it can fulfill the request with a cached report page. If the Cache Server finds a cached page that displays exactly the required data, with data that has been refreshed from the database within the interval that you have specified as the default, the Cache Server returns that cached report page. If the Cache Server cannot fulfil the request with a cached report page, it passes the request along to the Page Server. The Page Server runs the report and returns the results to the Cache Server. The Cache Server then caches the report page for future use, and returns the data to the viewer. By storing report pages in a cache, BusinessObjects Enterprise avoids accessing the database each and every time a report is requested. If you are running multiple Page Servers for a single Cache Server, the Cache Server automatically balances the processing load across Page Servers. The processing tier accesses the data and generates the reports. It is the only tier that interacts directly with the databases that contain the report data. 30 BusinessObjects Enterprise Administrator s Guide

31 BusinessObjects Enterprise Architecture Processing tier 2 Job servers The processing tier includes: Job servers Web Intelligence Report Server Report Application Server (RAS) Page Server A Job Server processes scheduled actions on objects at the request of the CMS. When you add a Job Server to the BusinessObjects Enterprise system, you can configure the Job Server to: Process report objects Process program objects Send objects or instances to specified destinations If you configure a Job Server to process report objects, it becomes a Report Job Server. If you configure a Job Server to process program objects, it becomes a Program Job Server, and so on. The processing tier includes: Report Job Server Program Job Server Web Intelligence Job Server Destination Job Server List of Values Job Server Desktop Intelligence Job Server BusinessObjects Enterprise Administrator s Guide 31

32 2 BusinessObjects Enterprise Architecture Processing tier Report Job Server If you configure a Job Server to process report objects, it becomes a Report Job Server. The Report Job Server processes scheduled reports, as requested by the CMS, and generates report instances (instances are versions of a report object that contain saved data). To generate a report instance, the Report Job Server obtains the report object from the Input FRS and communicates with the database to retrieve the current data. Once it has generated the report instance, it stores the instance on the Output FRS. Program Job Server If you configure a Job Server to process program objects, it becomes a Program Job Server. Program objects allow you to write, publish, and schedule custom applications, including scripts, Java programs or.net programs that run against, and perform maintenance work on, BusinessObjects Enterprise. The Program Job Server processes scheduled program objects, as requested by the CMS. To run a program, the Program Job Server first retrieves the files from storage on the Input File Repository Server, and then runs the program. By definition, program objects are custom applications. Therefore the outcome of running a program will be dependent upon the particular program object that is run. Unlike report instances, which can be viewed in their completed format, program instances exist as records in the object history. BusinessObjects Enterprise stores the program s standard out and standard error in a text output file. This file appears when you click a program instance in the object History. Web Intelligence Job Server The Web Intelligence Job Server processes scheduling requests it receives from the CMS for Web Intelligence documents. It forwards these requests to the Web Intelligence Report Server, which will generate the instance of the Web Intelligence document. The Web Intelligence Job Server does not actually generate object instances. Destination Job Server If you configure a Job Server to send objects or instances, it becomes a Destination Job Server. A Destination Job Server processes requests that it receives from the CMS and sends the requested objects or instances to the specified destination: 32 BusinessObjects Enterprise Administrator s Guide
