Recent Pentaho Tech Tips

Hi Folks,

I wanted to share a couple of the technical articles I’ve written in the last month:

Mondrian Cache Priming and Cache Control in the BI Server - This article covers how to take control of your Mondrian cache via action sequences, including priming the cache with MDX Queries as well as using Mondrian’s CacheControl API to flush specific segments of the cache.

Customizing your Pentaho Metadata Query in Pentaho Reporting - This article describes how to customize Pentaho’s Metadata Query Language (MQL) in a significant way before execution, allowing reports to respond to user input through prompting in ways that weren’t possible before.
