You'll also discover how to integrate reports into your ASP.NET and WinForms applications using URL access and the Reporting Services Web Service API, without requiring users to use Internet Explorer. Finally, you'll learn how to empower your users to create ad-hoc reports using Report Builder and Report Model projects.
