    Arrow Testing goals for the week of 6/18

    This is the first official week of community testing. We will concentrate on metadata and the metadata editor. Please report any issues or comments by replying to this thread. Include the platform, operating system, database, browser and any other configuration information that may be important.

    For this phase of testing we assume that you are a knowledgeable Pentaho user and are comfortable with downloading and installing the platform and components. This is not meant to be a test script but an outline to get you started using metadata and begin to get feedback on the documentation and user experience.

    Refer to the FAQ and 1.6 Testing Home page for questions and resources.


    • Download and install the Milestone 4 platform: Milestone 4 version 1.5.4
    • Start the platform (refer to the Getting Started with the BI Platform guide)
    • Use your browser and try the samples to verify you are configured correctly (Default URL is http://localhost:8080/pentaho)
    • Verify that web based query and reporting is working by selecting "New Report" from the "Go" menu item. Drag and drop a few items and press the "Go" button at the bottom to preview.
    • If you were successful - great! Otherwise verify the above steps and if all else fails, reply to this post for help.
    • Now the fun part, download the Pentaho Metadata Editor - PME M4 1.5.4
    • Install the Pentaho Metadata Editor by following the documentation. Chapter 02 has the installation instructions.
    • Follow the documentation to build metadata on top of your own data and publish to the platform.
    • Give your feedback
    • Test your current solutions, actions, reports, etc. to make sure that they still work as expected in this new release.

    Default WAQR Issues

    1. The WAQR causes out of memory errors when returning large resultsets. We have to fix this. It seems the SQL Action Sequence allows for specifying the type of resultset to avoid memory issues. Is there anyway to do this for WAQR?

    2. We want to customize the WAQR wizard. First we need a new format; Pipe delimited instead of comma delimited. We could hopefully define the type of resultset to be used for this format as well (see above)

    3. After we save the WAQR as an Action Sequence it cannot be opened in the design studio (JFreeReort Specification Error). This looks like a bug. Hopefully we can use the Action Sequence generated from the WAQR in other Action Sequences. Also, this may be the place to tweak the output format or type of resultset used.

    Item 1 above was assigned a JIRA case of BISERVER-36: WAQR wasn't generating a <live>true</live> tag in the generated xaction. Since this is a report xaction this should always be the case. It has been resolved in the current code line and should fix the memory problems.

    Reference to Item 2 above. In the context of the Pentaho BI Platform, how would you use the pipe delimited file? Would some kind of post processing help?

    thanks,
