The quickest way to start learning the Pentaho Platform is to download the Pentaho Demo here:

https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=140317&package_id=160028&release_id=530294

The JBoss app server is packaged with the demo. Once you have the examples running, you can go on to installing your own datasource. Check out this article for details:

Hope this helps!

I just built my first proof of concept with Pentaho, and found reports were a great way to get started. Have you downloaded the Pentaho Report Designer? I have version 1.2.0 build 143 on my computer. Start the report designer, and under the file menu you will find the report wizard. That will step you through a basic report.

After you make your report, again look under the file menu and choose publish. If you haven't set up the publish password, make sure you choose "publish" instead of "publish to server". You will want to save your report somewhere in the Pentaho-Solutions folder. Make sure the box that says to create XAction is checked.

Finally, open your web browser and navigate to Pentaho. Choose the admin tab, and then click refresh solution repository. Now go to the solutions tab and your report should be there.

Good luck!

p.s. I'm from the USA, but I played in a music competition in Lodz a couple of years ago. I really enjoyed Poland.
