Teiid 8.10 Final Released

The Teiid community is excited to announce yet another perfectly time boxed release of its Data Virtualization software - version 8.10. Overall we resolved about 113 JIRA issues (features, enhancements, bugs) in this release. You can download from http://teiid.org/downloads

A special shout out thank you goes to community member Tom Arnold and his great contributions to Geospatial support in Teiid.

The top highlights are
  • TEIID-3192 Salesforce Connectivity - connectivity was converted to the partner api provided by Salesforce rather than utilizing CXF. Please log an issue if you were utilizing features from the CXF config.
  • TEIID-3046 Recursive Common Table Expression - engine and push down support was added.
  • TEIID-3163 TEIID-3167 Text Table Enhancements - to support a general no trim option and to use a different row delimiter.
  • TEIID-991 SybaseIQ Translator - for use with SybaseIQ 15.1 and later.
  • TEIID-2882 PrestoDB Translator - for use with PrestoDB 0.85 and later.
  • TEIID-1091 Additional SQL/XML Support - XMLEXISTS, XMLTEXT, and XMLCAST were added.
  • TEIID-3216 Update Support for Google Spreadsheets
  • TEIID-2384 Geospatial Support - contributed by Tom Arnold. Adds a geometry type and several functions. See the reference for more.
  • TEIID-2816 Hbase Support - based upon the Phoenix JDBC Drirver.
  • TEIID-3043 Docker Image - can now be produced by the build.
  • TEIID-2694 REST Service - Generated REST web services now support larger binary payloads.
As always it would not have been possible without community members Bram Gadeyne, Devin Pinkston, Ivan Chan, Luca Gioppo, Madhu Garimilla, Mark Twak, Michal Warecki, Nicholas D, Rakesh Bulguri, Salvatore R, Sanjeev Gour, Shiveeta Mattoo, Tu Nguyan for their contributions. Thank you.

This release we have also release Docker Image for Teiid. Be sure to play with it and let us what you think.

End of one release means start of another yet another release 8.11. If you are using Teiid and want some features or want to contribute towards features come talk to us in Teiid Forums.

If you are thinking about production support, look into Redhat Data Virtualization.  You can also download a free developer version of upcoming DV 6.1.0 version there.


Thank you

Steve & Ramesh..

Teiid 8.10 CR2 Released

We found a small kitting issue with 8.10 CR1, and thus we are releasing a 8.10 CR2 today. After CR1, we fixed about ~10 bugs that have identified by the community, so thank for that.

Download at http://teiid.jboss.org/downloads/

  • One feature that has been added is "Nested Table Support" in the MongoDB, where one can define multiple related tables with relationships and produce a single document on the MongoDB. This is will co-locate the data and makes the queries execute faster when using joins between related tables.
  • Teiid Docker Image is also being uploaded to DockerHub

We will be branching the Teiid GIT repo for 8.10 Final, and start working on 8.11 today or tomorrow. If no serious issues found, we expect 8.10.Final by the end of next week. So, get the latest CR2 and verify your usecases before the final is released to ensure the continuity.

8.11 is shaping up, it is time for you to speak up and let us know what features you are most interested in, let us know or vote it up in JIRA.

Thanks

Ramesh & Steve.

Teiid 8.10 CR1

Teiid 8.10 CR1 is available from the downloads and maven.  Feature highlights since Beta2 include:
  • TEIID-3043 Docker Image - can now be produced by the build.
The geospatial feature continues to evolve. We'll now read geometry values from Oracle, Postgresql/Postgis, and MySQL - including their SRID's. There are also now 18 system functions.

Ideally the final release should be ready by the 20th, but that will of course depend upon any issues that still need to be addressed.

Work on Teiid 8.11 is expected to start sometime next week, so be sure to let us know if there are any issues that you would like to get in.

Teiid on top of Apache HBase

If you want to access HBase data through JDBC, or integrate/model HBase Data using Teiid/Teiid Designer, please read https://developer.jboss.org/wiki/TeiidOnTopOfApacheHBase for an example.

This  feature will be available in Teiid starting from 8.10.Beta2 release.

Teiid 8.10 Beta2

Teiid 8.10 Beta2 is available from the downloads and maven.  We've continued to tackle issues and refine the work from Beta1.  We have now addressed over 80 issues and are making significant progress on geospatial support.

The 8.10 final is still on track for mid-February.  Now that EAP 6.4 Alpha is available, it will be the target for 8.11 development.

Let us know if you experience any issues as there is plenty of time to get them addressed for CR1.

Thanks,
Steve

Teiid 8.10 Beta1

After the year end slowdown, Teiid 8.10 Beta1 is available from the downloads and maven.  Feature highlights since Alpha2 include:
  • TEIID-2384 Geospatial Support - contributed by Tom Arnold. Adds a geometry type and several functions. See the reference for more.
  • TEIID-2816 Hbase Support - based upon the Phoenix JDBC Drirver.
We expect both of these features to evolve a little more before the final release and documentation is also pending.  Ideally we'll have a blog or two to cover the geospatial topic.

We should be back on track to have pre-releases every two weeks, so expect a Beta2 before the end of the month and a final by mid-February.  It has been determined that we'll skip the Wildfly 8 series in favor of aligning with Wildfly 9 for Teiid 9.  So we'll begin that effort sometime after the Wildfly team hits CR1.

Teiid 8.10 Alpha2

Teiid 8.10 Alpha2 is now available from the downloads and maven.  Feature highlights include:
  • TEIID-991 SybaseIQ Translator - for use with SybaseIQ 15.1 and later.
  • TEIID-2882 PrestoDB Translator - for use with PrestoDB 0.85 and later.
  • TEIID-1091 Additional SQL/XML Support - XMLEXISTS, XMLTEXT, and XMLCAST were added.
  • TEIID-3216 Update Support for Google Spreadsheets
Ramesh also introduced logic to support OAuth - Integrating Twitter With OAuth.

There have been several JIRAs to increase compatibility including quoted set/show variables, temp table on commit clause, (the long overdue) -- single line comment, and set session characteristics for transaction isolation level.

And of course there have been a host of other issues resolved - many of which originated from community users.  Special thanks to Filip Elias for contributing the update support for google spreadsheets.
