[Mondrian] Aggregate UDFs

Hello Jeremiah,

When you implement a UDF in Mondrian, one of the methods you can implement
specifies the type of object returned by the instance. The Javadocs have
all the details here:


It's worth noting that this method takes a list of parameter types. These
are the types that were used when the method was invoked in MDX, so you can
return a different type of object according to the arguments which were
used in the MDX.

Alternatively, for quick prototyping, you can implement the UDFs in
Javascript directly in your schema file. It's the fast and easy way to try
them out, but I strongly advise writing them in Java and writing unit tests
and all. We have a lot of unit tests for UDFs in the base test suite, so
you can copy/paste some code from there.

Let us know if we can help you further.
