But, why i must start a report server in my machine?

(I see it as other server like Apache or Sendmail, like an stand alone
server, not as libgda.)

Perhaps, i'm wrong, please correct me.

Well, this would be a good point. It's ok for me.

Yes, i think i haven't understand well it before. Sorry, as i have said
before, i though that it will be a separate process, a "server".
And as you tell me now, it ins't (or almost it could be integrated
inside the application, then the application is at the same time the
server and the client.

I think that it does not need  a separation (at the moment, perhaps when
we implement it, we see that it's necessary)

Well, excuse me another time, I hope i don't forget nothing like this
the next time :-)
