Get your environment ready

Following are the software requirements, which need to be installed to get your environment ready for the application deployment.
Currently we have tested OpenI-Japser project on tomcat server only. We haven't tested the application in other J2EE servers like JBoss, Glassfish, etc .  You may want to refer to Known Issues page, to get more information on the supported J2EE servers.
OpenI-Jasper is shipped with embedded mondrian(http://mondrian.pentaho.com/), an open source olap server , so no need to configure any olap server separately for running the analysis reports. While OpenI-Jasper project provides full compatibility with the mondrian olap server, it can connect to other XMLA standard based olap servers also.

OpenI-Jasper distributions are uploaded in the sourceforge.net repository. Please click here to download the deploy-ready war distribution. This archive contains deploy-ready openi-jasper.war file, project related docs, licenses file and SQL script. Here is the directory structure of the zip.

Deploy the war

Unzip the zip distribution and copy the openi-jasper.war to the deploy directory of J2EE server. For tomcat , copy the war file to "<<tomcat installation directory>>/webapps" folder location.

Configure the database

Please click here to view the database configuration steps.

Take a test drive

Once the openi-jasper is successfully deployed to the application server and the database is properly configured, start the application server and point your browser to http://localhost:8080/openi-jasper. You will be prompted a openi-jasper login page.



Use the pre-configured demo account i.e. "admin/admin" as administrator or "user/user" as normal user to get logged into the system. Once you log in successfully, you can now see the list of the sample reports in the repository as shown below:





Now click on a sample analysis report "Foodmart Sample Analysis View" under the "Analysis Views" section.
