We have .net windows forms application and Cognos 8 reports and  I would appriciate if any one can share thier experiences on integrating these two(windows forms and cognos reports)



Exactly how do you want to integrate them? All reports are accessible by a URL so one method if integration is to simply spawn a IE session (or HTML viewer) with the correct URL. Alternatively you could probably call a URL which renders a report as PDF and provide that PDF to the user. These are examples of report rendering integration. Is that what you mean?

Certainly the URL interface is far simpler than the SDK but it is not as flexible and can really only open studios or run reports.
