This post is a quick tip about using Groovy to work with Essbase Cloud Java APIs for those who prefer to code in Groovy instead of Java for whatever reason (in my case I just prefer the simplified Groovy syntax). Everything I’m about to demonstrate here applies to any Java API, be it Essbase on-premise or OCI etc.
For this demo purposes, I will be using OCI marketplace Essbase 21c deployment.
- Login to Essbase instance using opc user via SSH (using PuTTy, VSCode, PS etc)
- Initialise and prepare the environment by typing
Groovy is now installed and GROOVY_HOME is set.
In the second part we will configure Essbase working directory and show how to use Groovy with Essbase Java APIs.
