[Mondrian] SteelWheels data set

I think we have multiple solutions to the same problem. I have been
developing mondrian/bin/loadFoodMart.sh , which has a target for each major
database, and using it each time I need to install a mondrian dev
environment on a test machine.
Problem with Sherman's solution is that this requires ant to run in a
runtime environment.
We can each continue to do things our own way, but what do we recommend to
folks who are installing mondrian for the first time? I think the
instructions in install.html are adequate.

There is a load-foodmart target in the build script now checked in. It will
be there in the next release.

I don't know if anyone would find this (attached) script useful; I've loaded
FoodMart enough times to want to script the process.  I used this (bash)
script just a month or so ago, so it is ivy-aware.  The idea is you can run
this script from a clean Mondrian distribution and load foodmart in one
step.  Perhaps it could be generalized to load other schemas amoung other
I have the script living in <mondrian-install>/bin, e.g.
/opt/mondrian3.0/bin in my environment.

I have added Mondrian's SteelWheels data set and a test case that uses it.
SteelWheels is a smaller data set than FoodMart, and will be familiar to
many of you as the data set installed when Mondrian is part of the Pentaho


We've always asked for bug testcases to be in terms of the FoodMart data
set. From now on, we will be accepting test cases on SteelWheels too. 


To write a test case, add a method to SteelWheelsTestCase.java, and
copy-paste one of the existing tests. 


For details on how to install the data set, see
Currently there is a only a loader for MySQL. But I know you're an ingenious
bunch, who will figure out how to load it into other databases...
