[Mondrian] Visual folder structure

Hi Julian,
Thanks a lot for your feedback! For the Analyzer we have to define an
annotation called AnalyzerBusinessGroup. As long as any other GUI client
supplier is willing to follow the same naming convention it's ok. As a OLAP
schema designer I just don't want to come into the situation where I have
to define different names for the same functionality just because there is
a client specific naming.
Best regards,

Lately I hear quite some people asking about some kind of folder structure
to allow easier visual presentation of dimensions and measures (quite
similar to what the Analyzer only feature AnalyzerBusinessGroup does). The
idea is relatively simple: In the OLAP schema we should be able to define
folders and sub-folders to better categorize dimension levels and measures.
Now each client tool could come up with their own implementation and syntax
to cover this (probably not so good), so I was wondering if this could be
directly supported by Mondrian?
Any ideas? Suggestions?

It's a good idea, and it doesn't need any explicit support from Mondrian.
Just a convention for the name of the member property that should hold the
folder name. However, as I said in
http://jira.pentaho.com/browse/MONDRIAN-1042, I can't remember the name of
the property.

Benny, What does Analyzer use?
