As of Version 4 Release 3.5, the ReportCaster Servlet API is functionally stabilized. For Version 5.3 and higher, including Version 7 Release 7, Information Builders recommends that you use the ReportCaster API to implement all ReportCaster functionality. In Release 8.0 Version 05, Information Builders recommends the use of RESTful web services to implement ReportCaster functionality.

This chapter is a reference for users who have already developed applications using the Servlet API in a previous release.
