[Mondrian] Measure visible = 'false' in schema does not hide theMeasure

It's not a bug in mondrian. To mondrian, the 'visible' property is just
metadata. The measure is still available in MDX calculations and appears in
queries and metadata queries.
I question the wisdom of hiding the sole measure in your cube. Most user
interfaces reasonably expect there to be at least one visible measure. (And
they expect the default measure to be visible.)
Make sure that there is it at least one measure visible (create a dummy
measure if necessary) and then let us know if the UI works then.

 I have a single Measure in my cube and I want to hide it.

I made the visible property to false in the schema but the Measure is still
being displayed in the jpivot browser.

Is this a bug?

 Is there a workaround for this problem?
