    Default [Mondrian] new Olap4j "Database" and OlapDataSource

    Hi,
    what's the relation between the new olap4j entity "Database" and the
    existing OlapDataSource?

    Instinctively I'd say that a OlapDataSource is the same thing as a Database?

    thanks,
    Michele

    Michele,

    Database is the top element of the metadata hierarchy. It contains some
    information about the server on the other end of the connection.
    OlapDataSource is a class required by JDBC to create connections to the
    server. They contain no metadata and serve only the purpose of creating
    connections when used in conjunction with a connection pool for example.
