Thread: Dashboard Designer Vs CDF

  1. #1

    Default Dashboard Designer Vs CDF

    Hello Peers,

    What is the difference in creating Dashboards using Dashboard Designer and CDF ?


    In CDF we create a Dashboards.jsp , template-dashboard.html , dashboard-list.xsl. Do we need to follow the same procedure in Dasboard designer or do we have drag&drop options in it like other dashboard wizards of other tools.

    To create dashboards in dashboard designer does a person need to have knowledge of JSP, X-actions,... The question looks silly, but i am confused , plz conform..

    CDF doesn't use jsp's, check the docs.
    This is a signature.... everyone gets it.

    The Dashboard Designer uses CDF to create dashboards. Basically it is the CDF design tool (GUI) in the Pentaho Enterprise Edition, which comes with some extras like a Chart Designer. It is aiming at end users, without any programming knowledge.The Dashboard Designer is Drag&Drop or at least no coding of files is required.

    To build dashboards using CDF, without a GUI, you need some basic HTML and JavaScript knowledge, that's it.

    CDF is the Framework that is used by the Dashboard Designer.....therefore Dashboard Designer is a GUI for CDF. The other GUI is Pedro's CDF Editor, which you can find here.

    You can create your html/javascript in any editor you like as long as you put them into the Pentaho solution folder afterwards.

    CDF itself has no GUI....did you download the CDF Editor, too?

    Next step is to register the plugin.....since the Designer is a Pentaho Plugin.

    For that you go to http://your_serverort/pentaho/Admin

    There you execute Refresh Plugin Adapter. Somewhere in the output window it should have a bit of text like: "Content generator registered: pentaho-cdf-dd for plugin Dashboard Designer Framework, Plugin Dashboard Designer Framework has registered successfully"

    Now the Designer is registered with the BI Server.

    If you navigate to the CDF Samples and especially the one in pentahomeeting09 you should be able to select EDIT when you right click. Then the CDF Editor opens.
