I am using the Pentaho community version and a I find lot of problems with the Pentaho Workbech Editor. I see in GitHub that the community tool has not been updated in the last two years. I expect no support as Pentaho is willing to push their enterprise version.
I would like to know if there is a third party tool to edit Mondrian schemas. At this point, apart from the community version I have three alternatives:
Paying for the enterprise verion? How much would it cost?
Using any third part tool to edit schemas?
editing schemas with a plain old text editor? Has anyone tried to work this way? Do Mondrian give clear messages if I mistakenly create a wrong schema?
Update: Mondrian 4 introduced a new incompatible XML schema. Mondrian 4 still can work with the old format but with some limitations. The official documentation literally says:
Schema workbench is obsolete and has been removed. Pentaho hopes to build a replacement, but no firm plans exist at this time.
