Is Red OLAPNavigator based on Jrubik or a completely different beast?

Did you have any chance to give JPalo v2.0 a try, which is a
Java-written XMLA capable client application?

The combination of Mondrian as XMLA server and a nice OLAP client
application like JPalo 2.0 looks promising, if one does not like the web
based JPivot approach as OLAP client. Although, JPalo is pretty memory
heavy and slow compared to the JPivot web based solution. Although, the
GUI of JPalo is much nicer.
