Nov 25, 2002. A new standard for querying and managing data and metadata in Java-based online analytical processing (OLAP) (define) servers and databases is approaching its final draft, the Java Community Process (JCP) said Monday.

The JCP Expert Group for the Java OLAP Interface (JOLAP) recently concluded a 60-day public review of their specification for multidimensional data management and interoperability of the JOLAP application programming interface (API).

Geared for the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) environment, JOLAP consists of the Common Warehouse Metamodel (CWM) and Java Metadata Interface (JMI) to perform advanced analytics and business performance management.

Firms involved in the architecture of this specification include Hyperion, Sun Microsystems, IBM, Oracle, Unisys, SAS Institute, Databeacon, Pilot Software, Nokia and Adaptive.
