And can it be used stand-alone?

Besides the stand alone bit, isn't that a bit of a daft question? I suggest you do some reading.

The editor is a standalone client that generates an XMI file compliant with the Common Warehouse Metamodel, so from that perspective, it's standalone. You might want to browse the documentation at: http://wiki.pentaho.org/display/PentahoDoc/Pentaho+Metadata+Editor

Actually I am even new to Metadata management, from the wiki pages I now know a "domain" can be published to Pentaho BI Server, now I want to know how the "domain" definition is used by BI Server or end-users, can end users write reports directly against the domain module?
