Connecting to an Open Source OLAP engine from a command-line XMLA client

I got an interesting email from Chris Harringtion today which I though I would share:

Hey, I had a really interesting impromtu collaboration yesterday with Nickolas Goodman. The results of our experiment are posted to his blog at

I ran my command-line XMLA client on my machine and made requests to his Mondrian XMLA provider. Before talking with Nick I had no idea that there was an open source ROLAP PTS and XMLA provider. see

Chris's ThinOlap blog at has some outstanding information mainly revolving around XMLA. His information here is outstanding, I think I have now read through every article he has written.
