I'm looking to build a .NET reporting solution on top of an existing AS/400 system.  Before I do so, I have a few questions I'd like cleared up so that I can get the most value out of the setup. What would be the best integration technology to use. Should i develop the system so that logic calls are performed in the mainframe or in the .NET layer?  I don't have experience with this type of system, so any other suggestions are most welcome.

    As far as accessing IBM i data, we use IBM's .Net Data Provider which comes with iAccess (Client Access).  This works well and negates the need to purchase a third-party product for accessing DB2 data on the IBM i.

    A long-time IBM i and .Net consultant we work with from time to time recommends ActiveReports 7 for building reports in .Net applications.  He feels this is superior to Crystal Reports for program-generated reports.
