        You probably need to take a second look at Discoverer/Hyperion as it's known today. Many moons ago, while I was employed at a company known as VIcor in Andover Ma, we were very heavy Discoverer users and the old version was just too far out of date to be useful anymore. They elected to migrate to Hyperion and it was a major success. Oracle has since acquired Hyperion and done some nice things to the tool. You can get a copy to play with at ment/index.html. It was a real hit with the end users where I was at the time.

Subject: Data Browser replacement

Okay, I know this is a very old, unsupported tool, but our users just can't bear to give up their Data Browser. We are running into problems that are going to force them to find a new tool within the next year...even though they've had a team assigned to find a new tool for the past 5 years.

Anyone have any great ideas about a similar tool? We've investigated Discoverer and I think also HTTPD server(?), but that would have been years ago. The biggest problem is that they've got all kinds of stored browser queries that they don't want to use.

Suggestions are welcome!
