Recap: How To Create a Cube
Following are the different steps for creating a cube from scratch, using a predefined cube factory and without the help of the icCube builder UI. Remember that the icCube cubes directory (accessible from the Web monitoring console) contains several working examples.
1. Data Source: select the type of data source and edit the corresponding file (e.g. single file or Excel sheet).
2. Cube Factory: create/edit the appropriate cube factory XML file that references, among others, the data source file(s). Remember the naming convention. The name of this file must have the extension .icc-schema.
3. Drop these files into the icCube cubes directory.
4. Finally, request that the icCube server reload all the schema available using the Web monitoring console. The new schema and cube should now be available and listed within the application.
