A tool for use in Essbase automation routines
Even if there is nothing specific to Essbase in the files, Jessub is a small evolution of a concept that has served can serve you well in many instances.
Jessub will read in a template file that you create, search for certain tokens, then write a new file with those tokens replaced with different values.
These tokens will be the contents of a MaxL script statement to update a substitution variable.
In effect, Jessub generates a new MaxL script on the fly and running it against the target Essbase server.
Detailed instructions on how to install and use the Jessub utility on your Mac are available HERE.
Jessub is a cross-platform utility capable of running on any operating system that comes with Java support (e.g. Mac OS X, Windows, Linux).
