    Hi there,

    A good starting point is
    http://community.pentaho.com/

    If you're talking about PDI a.k.a. Kettle, here's the community edition. You should probably get 4.0.1 stable:
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/pent...20Integration/

    Check out the wiki for documentation on pentaho components incl. Kettle:
    http://wiki.pentaho.com/display/COM/Community+Wiki+Home

    There is some literature that you should have at least heard of



    Cheers

    Pentaho is a Business Intelligence platform. The two items that may be of most interest to you is Pentaho Data Integration (Kettle), a very complete ETL tool, and the BI Platform/Server.
    You can fire up and start using both immediately. They both contain some excellent examples that should help you determine if Pentaho's tools will be useful to you.

    Do not forget to check out the Pentaho Report Designer too! I love it!!!

    If you are a developer, look at pentaho-xul/shandor-xul. It's an awesome UI framework (nothing to do with BI).

    HTH,

    Edit: Check out the link on Slawo's signature. The site looks very informative.

    Now you can add the new Pentaho Data Integration Cookbook to this list.
    In the book site you will find the full table of contents and a sample chapter for downloading,
    Enjoy

    I am trying to generate the report automatically using pentaho reporting output. The sample report works just perfect after starting BI server. Now when I try execute my report based on MySQL, its generating zero byte file. I tried using JNDI connection as well as native but still no luck.

    Initially I was trying with parameterized report but then tried to execute normal report and found that the moment, it needs data source, it stops writing and I could see just headers in that case.

    Any pointers as where would I be making the silly mistake? Even a sample on MySQL will be great help.
