Now, my boss want a report tool, but i'm quite confusing about this, i understand that i have to define a report whith the report Designer wizard ( for example) but i don't know how to integrate that Report inside my mondrian installation. Anyone can help me please?

    It depends on what your boss is needing. Maybe you could provide some views of the cubes. In that case, you don't need any reporting tool.
    As far as I know, you can't drill from a cube to a JFree report. But you can create cubes, or reports, or both. It depends, again, on your requirements.

    Or dashboards containing both JPivot and JFreeReport components combined.

    Hello Bvce,

    To run reports developed in the report wizard or report designer that are based on mondrian cubes, you'll need to install the pentaho platform. Download the Pentaho PCI 1.7.0 GA to get started.

    Default Thanks, and sorry.

    Thanks for the answer, appologise for the way of the question, moderator, i just was trying to make it "sweet", nice, i'm not quite sure about the right expresion (sorry O: ) )...
    Just wanted to know how to find and install a report application (cubes and views are not enough) without install the full plattform of Pentaho (i think that's what are you talking about wgorman?).
    I'll try to find a "clear and easy dummies tutorial" for jfreereports and jpivot, any suggestion?
    Thanks again to all
    Regards, Bvce

    Ignore my signature, thats there for everyone

    Tutorials are a little thin on the ground, the wiki has a useful amount of information and if you install the Pentaho platform you will have all the sample reports to look at and work from.
