Migrating icCube : 2.5.4 to 2.5.5

icCube 2.5.5 is backward compatible with the previous version but see below for new configuration properties. Note the FORMAT_STRING syntax change.

Installation Reminder

Different versions of icCube can be installed side-by-side on the same machine and no file will be removed during the installation of a new version.

The main two directories mentioned in this page are:

  • the installation directory (referred to $install hereafter) : this is where the icCube binaries are installed,
  • the application directory (referred to $app hereafter) : this is the place where a running instance of icCube server is storing its data (e.g., users, roles, cubes, etc...). On startup of icCube this directory (if not existing) is created and initialized with the content of the $install directory.

Configuration (icCube.xml)

Within the configuration file $install/bin/icCube.xml, the following properties have been either added, modified or deleted.


  • defaultFormatStringSyntax: (added) the online documentation explains in details how both Excel and JAVA syntax are supported.
  • webPubDirectory : (added) this property replaces the deprecated reportDirectory property that has been removed. Files in this directory will be publicly available via the URL /icCube/... (no authentication is required).


  • javaMdxActive : (added) Java / MDX interaction activation.
