Thanks for considering Pentaho. There are a couple of ways of installing the platform. The Pentaho Demo is a preconfigured install of the platform based upon JBoss. This is the simplest installation. The second is to manually deploy the WAR or EAR into your application server. Unfortunately, our manual deployment documentation was written for Tomcat 5.0 and do not work on Tomcat 5.5 due to changes in the server.xml format. The forum post below may help you in your Tomcat 5.5 deployment efforts.


Hope this helps…

its no longer than 4 hours when i installed the demonstration of the pentaho, believe me its really a good tool for developing a web application easier and faster than the other platform engine
i found all i need to build plans reports,analysis and graphicals reports .

You can download the sample data http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/pentaho/pentaho_data- and solution http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/pentaho/pentaho_solutions- The advanced install guide documents how to configure the application to use the downloaded solution.
