    Default PAT 0.8 Released

    Hi PAT-fans,

    for those of you who didn't notice, PAT 0.8 was released today!
    New Features:

    • New Query Design workflow
    • Drill Up (opposite of Drill Replace)
    • Major improvements of drill support
    • Fix saving queries (especially on mondrian connections)
    • Inline schema editor
    • Re-Save queries
    • Basic Role support
    • Multiple Hierarchies

    !!! Loading a saved query doesn't show the selections but you can execute the query anyway. And the Drag and Drop query design may still have a few issues. We know about it and will fix this as soon as possible !!!

    You can access an online demo at our new server (donations are still welcome ;-)
    Feedback is very welcome and needed. Please take some time to give us some feedback and/or file JIRA's!

    You can download the following packages:

    - PAT Standalone pre-configured server for Windows and Linux/Mac
    Download, Extract, run start-patserver.bat / and access it via http://localhost:8080/

    - PAT Standalone WAR
    Just drop the WAR file into your favourite Java Webserver and access it via e.g: http://localhost:8080/pat-0.8/
    PAT will use per default an in-memory HSQLDB for persistence, so if you restart its all gone.
    You can change the settings in tomcat/webapps/pat-0.8/WEB-INF/

    - PAT Plugin (works with biserver 3.6)
    Just download and extract the bundle into your pentaho-solutions/system folder
    When you start up the User Console just look out for a blue cube icon :-)

    - PAT User Guide
    The user guide explains how to use and configure the pat-server and pat-plugin

    For those of you who are interested in the bleeding edge versions of PAT, we have set up a continuous integration environment:
    - CI PAT Standalone WAR
    - CI PAT pre-configured server
    - CI PAT plugin (without biserver)

    Don't hesitate to contact us in case you need some further information, assistance with the download packages, or want to contribute!

    Have fun!

    Nice job guys - working on loading onto my Pentaho server now. Keep up the great work
    The best thing about a boolean is even if you are wrong, you are only off by a bit.

    I've downloaded PAT-0.8.war today and moved it to my tomcat webapps folder.
    My problem is that it never ends deploying.

    I get this with a blinking cursor at the end:

    Oct 20, 2010 4:53:19 PM org.apache.catalina.startup.HostConfig deployWAR
    INFO: Deploying web application archive pat-0.8.war

    If it can help, I can provide logs on request if I know what to look for.
    There's no point going somewhere if you don't enjoy the ride.

    Hi there,

    i am having some problems with the plugin as the Automatic Pentaho XMLA connection is not working.
    "There has been an error regarding the Connection. Please contact the system administrator: It was not possible to establish a connection.

    In tomcat i see a 401 error in the url I guess it has to do with permissions? What is the correct username and password, i guess it should the be the admin username and password of pentaho, right?

    Thanks for helping.
