    Default Pentaho Design Studio

    Hi taqua,
    I ve read on the forum that there is no necessity of generating xaction files in PRD 3.5
    and later.

    If so,what is the use of design studio?

    To write XActions. They still have their use for bursting and all sorts of rather complex bi-processes. With 3.5 we just eliminated the need for xactions for the simple cases, as there they add complexity without adding value. But there is no way we could ever write something that anticipates all the highly specialized cases that can be solved with properly written XActions.

    My take on XAction vs prpt-mode is simple: If it is a standard task that can be implemented by a monkey with nothing more than a banana and a stick, then lets eliminate the monkey and eat the banana by creating a standard plugin that can be driven by just some parameters or simple settings files. But the complex cases are like a Gorilla in the room - you dont even think about stealing his banana
