    Hi Samatar,

    that so called 3A "plugin" is not a plugin and is illegal as closed source. (violates the LGPL license)

    I offered to help 3A strategies to help develop the plugin so I'm offering my help again in the hope that this mess gets cleared up.
    (in a month or so when I have more time :-))

    Hi Matt,

    we see the problems with the 3A approach and we would like to turn that into a real and highly sophisticated Plugin. Either from scratch or based on the existing work. We have the funds to finance that, but we are still looking for a qualified resource to do the development work, ideally someone with a Kettle background. Anyone you (or somebody else in the forum) could think of that is available on short notice?

    Hi Matt,

    You are right.
    Thanks for clarifications.

    Hope some day, we have a nice Palo Plugin.

    Default Simple Palo Plugin using JAVA API for PDI 3.0 and Palo Server 2

    I have writing a simple plugin using Java API provided by tensegrity.

    This plugin allows creating Palo's databases, dimensions, cubes, consolidations and insertions.

    A userguide, an example ( using Pentaho's sample data ), sources and plugin are in the zip file .

    (ErrorHandling have a problem ... no rows are put in errorsrow)

    Only tested on Linux + Kettle 3RC2 + Palo2.0 server ...

    Thank you Nichalas,

    We are actually busy developing a set of plugins for PALO in cooperation with Tensegrity.
    There will be 4 plugins to read/write from cubes and dimensions.

    I think what is probably the best in this situation is that we take the best of both worlds.
    What license are you posting this source code under?

    All the best!

    Default Pdi 3.0 & Palo

    I can't connect to PALO server with PDI 3.0 / Windows.
    I have the message : PDI a rencontré une erreur lors du test de connexion (PDI fails to connect during the test connection)

    I have the following configuration :
    - Database provider : Palo MOLAP Server
    - Access method : Plugin specific
    - Host : localhost
    - Port : 7777
    - Username : admin
    - Password : ****
    Theses informations are ok when I connect to Palo server with Palo Client (from Tensegrity Software)

    Somebody have an idea ? You can send emails to bruno at

    Thanks for your help
