Definition: Javelin Plus
A spreadsheet for DOS that can simulate multidimensional views of data. Introduced in 1985 by Javelin Software, it was more a modeling program than a spreadsheet and was the forerunner of today's OLAP databases, which are inherently designed for multiple dimensions. It was later acquired by Information Resources, Inc. and Javelin Plus 3.5 in 1993 was the last version marketed. The technology, along with IRI's Express software, was acquired by Oracle in 1995.
