    OLAP by definition always requires a Mondrian (or any other OLAP service) running. "Normal database" probably refers to SQL databases. SQL databases are always built around a relational datamodel, so throwing OLAP concepts at it probably does not make much sense (and or ends in a huge SQL mess no sane human is able or willing to walk through).

    The Citrus-PRD has some experimental Crosstabbing support built in, but so far this stuff is exactly that: experimental and we do not provide any support for it.
