WDC works well without Server. You need only to import your HTML code to Server if you planning Server side WDC-Extract refreshes.

For some reasons I have a feeling that you are working on SAP BusinessObjects connector. Are my feelings correct?
Yes Tamas, I am trying to connect BO with Tableau.
I have seen your databoss blog. Your work looks very cool.

I was trying to host the sample WDC come with WDC SDK Kit.
