[Mondrian] difficulty installing demo

The demo .war has not been maintained well.  It used jpivot, which was a fairly clunky web interface.  If your interest is primarily evaluating Mondrian from a web client, I'd recommend downloading a client that bundles Mondrian like Pentaho Analyzer (included in the Pentaho EE trial<http://www.pentaho.com/download>), or Saiku<http://meteorite.bi/saiku/download>.

As far and the ant project--  "ant jar" will create the jar.  If you'd like to create the war file to try out XMLA, run "ant war-no-jpivot".

I apologize if my questions are naive, I'm new  and trying to get started.

Is this current?

I followed step 1:
Download the latest binary release mondrian-version.zip from SourceForge<http://sourceforge.net/projects/mondrian>, and unzip it.

but apparently it is a jar file and not a zip file.

Next, I tried grabbing the code from git and installing by running "ant".

Where is the mondrian.jar file? It didn't appear to get created, and so cannot run step #2:
" java -cp "/mondrian/lib/mondrian.jar:/mondrian/lib/log4j.jar:/mondrian/lib/commons-logging.jar:/mondrian/lib/eigenbase-xom.jar:/mondrian/lib/eigenbase-resgen.jar:/mondrian/lib/eigenbase-properties.jar:/usr/local/mysql/mysql-connector-java-5.0.5-bin.jar"
     -verbose -tables -data -indexes

I'd be happy to just grab an actual binary with a WAR file since I'm interested in evaluation at this point.

What do you suggest?

Thanks, Jason
