Could be a lot of things, but you probably have an older (<1.4) Java runtime environment (JRE) installed in you path.
Try setting the path explicitly to your 1.5 JRE in MetaEditor.bat

HTH,

Hi Matt ,
thanks for fast response :)

you right, my path point to 1.4 previously
now i can run and manage Pentaho Metadata Editor

can i ask you again about publishing a Domain to Pentaho BI Server in
http://wiki.pentaho.org/display/studio/08.+Publishing+a+Domain+to+a+Pentaho+BI+Server

Publishing


From the main menu's File menu, select the Publish to Server option. --> OK
The Publish dialog displays. --> OK
Enter the publish location, which is your solution name. --> "does publish location also must include path of my solution name or just solution name ?"
Enter the web publish URL, which is your Pentaho BI Server's base URL followed by the publish service name. RepositoryFilePublisher is the default. --> "what is publish service name , and how do we can set that publish service name other than default name?"
Enter the publish password . --> OK
Enter the administrator username. --> "what is the username administrator ? , how do we know and set that administrator username ? "
Enter the administrator password.what is the password administrator ? , how do we know and set that administrator password ? "

ok thats all my confusing question regarding publishing
sory if my question is general question.

thanks in advance,
Suganda:)

Suganda, I checked and the answers are all given on the page you linked.
Perhaps you should actually try to read it ;-)

Hi matt,
thanks for the response

finally i make it work.
so the admin is joe and the password is password
publishing password can be set in the publisher_config.xml
the publishing location i think must be samples since current metadata.xmi located in the samples folder of pentaho-solution
base url just leave is as default

but there are 3 issues that i still confuses about metadata pentaho

1. how do we change the user and password of pentaho administrator ??
2. suppose i go to http://localhost:8080/pentaho/home directly after start pentaho server, then i go to login page . after that i login with joe as administrator , then the results will bring me to 404 exception. However if i login to http://localhost:8080/pentaho which will bring me to http://localhost:8080/pentaho/login , than i login with joe as administrator , can login and work properly ( doesnt have 404 exception ) is this issues a pentaho bug ?
3. can i suggest to have more than 1 metadata.xmi in pentaho
because i think i need to make backup to previous metadata before publish to pentaho server
i mean can i create more than 1 metadata.xmi if i have a lot of business models , solution , domains , etc ?

sorry for my English :)

thanks in advance,
Suganda:)
