Hi,
I am new to Pentaho and looking for some information which I didn't get when I went through some of the contents in forum. I want to use BI Suite. If I use that, I need know the following.
1. Can I get the functionality of creating Dashboards along with (in-built in ) BI Suite?
2. Can I configure the BI Suite for Tomcat?
3. Can I make use of workflow functionality aslo in BI Suite?

If I don't get Dashboard functionality in BI Suite, Can I use Dashboards of Pentaho and reports of BIRT? Is this integration possible? Where can I get the documents?

Please respond me, I am new to Pentaho and sorry if these are dumb questions.

Thanks in advance....

1. Can I get the functionality of creating Dashboards along with (in-built in ) BI Suite?

There is plenty of dashboarding functionality built into Pentaho but there isn't yet a graphical tool for creating them, if your happy hacking html and javascript check out ingos framework here. (http://wiki.pentaho.org/display/COM/A+Dashboard+Framework+for+the+Pentaho+BI+Platform)

2. Can I configure the BI Suite for Tomcat?

You can indeed you need to recompile from source for the 1.6 release there is plenty of information on the wiki. (http://wiki.pentaho.org/dashboard.action)

3. Can I make use of workflow functionality aslo in BI Suite?

Workflow is implemented but very poorely documented so your on your own with that one! :)
