This is mainly caused by the fact that the functionality is very poorly documentedby Oracle.This document describes the configuration and implementation of the OBIEE metadata dictionary bothon an OC4J and an IIS web services. (Other web services can be easily configured based on of thesesystems) OBIEE FANS www.obieefans.com
