IvySE Update 0.0.4

Hey folks!

We’re happy to announce a new version of the Ivy Schema Editor with contributions from Brandon Jackson!

His team have been working hard to get the IvySE working on the latest version of the Pentaho BA Server 5.2. Along with that they have also added some really cool features that we think you will like.


More Cube Meta Data
The Cubes table now includes more details about the schemas and cubes you have in your Pentaho BA Server. Can’t remember what cube was a standard one and what was a virtual one? Not anymore!

Better cube execution
Before if you wanted to open a cube you would click the open button on the table but that would just open the Analyzer application. Now when you click a cube that cube is opened directly in Analyzer itself!

Loading spinners
Brandon realised that some of his larger cubes took a while to load in the editor and that he did not know if they would ever load or had failed loading. He has now added a simple loading spinner so you know that at least SOMETHING is happening in the background when you load a cube. The same goes for saving cubes.

Edit the cube within a schema.
Before when you lick on a cube you were places on line one of the schema itself. Now when you click a cube you are taken to the correct line in the schema that represents the beginning of that cube! If you click a schema instead of the cube itself then you are taken to the first line of the schema.

Its worth mentioning that this release is only for Pentaho 5.2

You can get a copy of IvySE 0.0.4 on the Pentaho Marketplace!

Thanks again to Brandon Jackson and his team! You can follow Brandon on twitter @usbrandon
