There are many other database systems out there such as mSQL, Progress and Ingres. There are also many OLAP systems which are becoming more popular as the hardware required to run them gets cheaper. One of the more popular OLAP systems is Essbase.
OLAP for Firebird / Interbase via Java
I am looking for a OLAP reporting cube creation tool for Firebird. So far, I know of HierCube (http://rbwsoft.com/products/overview.php) and CountourCube (http://www.contourcomponents.com/). However, both seem to be limited to a Windows environment.
Would anyone know of a Java-based solution?
