    Default metadata editor installation question


    A co-worker of mine requested I install the metadata-editor into the (not yet functional) pentaho bi-server. However, it looks a lot like a stand-alone application. My users are not in a position to login to the server and run the startup script.

    In truth, I am not really certain what the metadata-editor is supposed to do, let alone figure out how and where to install it.

    1) is this supposed to be a stand-alone tool on the client system?
    2) can it communicate with the bi-server on another system? How does this happen?

    Thank you for your time...

    It is a standalone application. It may be used on the server or on another machine. It publishes metadata models to the server and can import metadata models (.xmi files) already published on BI Servers, and can also export a local copy for use by Pentaho Report Designer.
