Updated Guides?

Posted under BI Server, Pentaho, Tutorials

I have noticed that the use of guides/tutorials have been constant since I last updated them for Pentaho’s Business Intelligence Stack 3.7. Now that Pentaho has reached 4.x I’m putting out the call to see if anyone is interested in having the guides updated for 4.x?

Post a comment and let me know – the more comments the more I might update ;)

    Dear Prashant Raju,

    could we use the same sampledata script for the version 4.8 of pentaho?

    Because the postgres scripts inside the 4.8 pentaho bundle seems to be still linked to the HSQL database for the sample.

    In create_sample_datasource_postgresql.sql:

    Could you advise me on how to move data from HSQL to Postgres 9.1for the sample Data?

    Thanks in advance.

    Kinds Regards,

    The actual version is very good but i’m interested too for an actualisation.
    I have some trouble to add another Data Source.

    Pentaho running correctly but when i tried to create database connection i get this message : “error checking parameters”

    +1 for the guides update !


  46. Posted by Philippe on Mar 14, 2013

    Yes please! Your guides are wildly informative mang, keep up the excellent work!!

  47. Posted by stefan on Mar 19, 2013

  48. Posted by joris on Mar 22, 2013

  49. Posted by Jun on Mar 23, 2013

    Please Update the guide to Version 4.5 or later.

    Thank you for your great work.

    I have been Emailing Prashant hoping he would update the Guides. Now with Mavericks and Pentaho 5.x it would be most interesting to hear feed back.

    Do the most recent published guides work for Pentaho 5?

    It took a little while to figure out which Java to load on Mavericks (does not ship with one).
