How about making hsqldb the default option? The MySQL regressions can be caught in the nightly build.

There is a lot to be said for the simplicity of

$ git clone git at github.com:pentaho/mondrian.git
$ cd mondrian
$ mvn install

I elected to stay with MySql because there are a number of tests, specifically around native evaluation, that match specifically to either mysql or oracle sql patterns.  The tests are basically a no-op for other dbs.  I agree hsqldb would be a more pure option, but would need to come with refactoring lots of tests.

It requires a bit more memory but because everything is in-memory and comes a JAR file which is a maven dependency I think it’s simpler than using jcabi-mysql-maven-plugin.
