This tutorial on Pentaho Sparkl application builder has been thought after my work on developing the A.A.A.R. solution from october to december 2013. With this tutorial I don’t want to steal the scene to the great work of the Pentaho team (in particular of Webdetails) but only share my experience with the people interested in developing it’s own application under the Pentaho Suite in it’s new version 5.
Once upon a time… Pedro Alves announced Sparkl Pentaho Application Builder.
Sparkl, or Pentaho App Builder, is a plugin creator instrument that let you able to create a complete Pentaho Application, with a “zero code” approach. Sparkl is based on the main idea to use the two major cornerstones of Pentaho: Ctools and Pentaho Data Integration.

This tutorial looks strictly to those skilled people, sharing with them my experience in this way of development.
