Creating a Jaspersoft OLAP Environment

This section explains how to prepare data to be used in Ad Hoc and OLAP views. These procedures can help you understand how to analyze your own data in the Ad Hoc editor and in Jaspersoft OLAP.

If you installed from the installer and chose the sample data option, Jaspersoft OLAP includes fully-prepared sample data, including the FoodMart OLAP view sample described in this section. The installation and configuration steps in this sections are not necessary if you installed the sample data; they are instead meant to illustrate the overall process of implementing an OLAP view.
