These are prototype features and APIs that I want get feedback on so that they can bake with community involvement.
This release contains:
This release is designed to work with V3.6 and V3.7 of the BI Server. All these features are delivered with plugins.
I am providing these features to gather feedback on their usefulness, completeness, design, usability etc. I have only made brief efforts to knock off the ugliness that typically affects prototype features.
The zip file contains a PDF with more documentation.
I will work to get the source code available.
Sorry for the CAPS but THESE FEATURES AND APIS ARE PROTOTYPES/ALPHA CODE

The server side source and plug-in files are here: svn://source.pentaho.org/svnroot/pentaho-sandbox/pentaho-jimmy-labs-r1
The build.xml does not package the plug-ins yet. I've been running the 'jar' task and manually creating the plug-in folders.
I don’t believe that using any of these features will result in catastrophic system failure or data loss. Backing-up is a good idea. Don’t come crying to me if you didn’t.
Do not call Pentaho support with any questions or issues about these features.
These features are not localized.
As regards the data-related community projects like CDA and PAT:
It would be nice to have a consistent API for metadata and queries for OLAP and relational sources. I'd also like an abstraction so that CDF components can deal with a single API for data.
I'll update this page once the source code is available.
Anyway, feedback welcome.
