Teiid 8.12 Beta2 and 8.11.3

We are further along toward the fall debut of Teiid 8.12 with the release of 8.12 Beta2 today.  The highlights of Beta1 are mostly fixes including corrections to the auto sizing of memory resources, fixing geometry methods in the EAP kit, improving the admin api, and a variety of translator issues.  We expect a CR1 in about 2 weeks.

Teiid 8.11.3 has also been released.  It contains 9 important fixes - all of which are in 8.12 Beta2.  Moving forward we anticipate supporting fix releases for longer into the cycle than we were previously.  So it should be routine for 3-4 fix releases to be issued rather than just a single one.

Both releases are available from maven and have been added to the download page: http://teiid.jboss.org/downloads/

Thanks again for all the community support,
Steve

Teiid 8.12 Beta1

Teiid 8.12 Beta1 has been released.  The feature highlight since Alpha2 is TEIID-3595/TEIID-3594 which were logging enhancements for command and audit logging - more granularity of the levels and more security events.

There have also been several HBase/Phoenix fixes and a variety of other fixes.  Expect another Beta release in about 2 weeks.

Thanks again for the community support and let us know if you find anything with the pre-release.

VDB Builder - Update Available

VDB Builder Update

The Teiid Designer team has released the next milestone kit for VDB Builder.  The VDB Builder is a command line tool that allows creating, editing and managing dynamic VDBs and their contents. The command line interface (CLI) is a result of our on-going Komodo initiative to develop an extensible VDB editing framework.

What's New?

In this milestone, we have added the ability to import and export Teiid DDL.  This means that you can create model content using a saved DDL file, and you can also export your model content into a DDL file.  In addition, we have updated our launch scripts and made numerous fixes and enhancements.

Try It Out

You can start building your VDBs now by downloading and unzipping the milestone kit from SourceForge!
You can view and checkout the source code here:  https://github.com/Teiid-Designer/komodo

Contributions and feedback are welcome!

  • TEIID-3515 TEIID-3530 Dependent join enhancements in hints and pushdown planning.

Thanks again for all of the community support,

VDB Builder - Next Generation Teiid Tooling Available

Next Generation of Teiid Designer

The Teiid Designer team has been developing a more versatile VDB editing tool called the VDB Builder.  The VDB Builder is a command line tool that allows creating, editing and managing dynamic VDBs and their contents.

This tool is a result of our on-going Komodo initiative to develop a non-Eclipse extensible VDB editing framework. We plan to continue building out this CLI to allow full editing of VDBs and data sources and eventually adding deployment capabilities. But it is currently limited to VDB creation and editing.

This framework is rooted in adapting a local embedded ModeShape repository which utilizes sequenced node structures modeled from the Teiid vdb-deployer.xsd schema definition and Teiid BNF.

Try It Out

You can start building your VDBs now by downloading and unzipping the first milestone kit from SourceForge!
You can view and checkout the source code here:  https://github.com/Teiid-Designer/komodo
Here are a couple of screen caps of initial welcome screen and showing the summary information for a VDB that was imported.
























Future Direction

Moving forward, we plan to refine and add capabilities to the framework that will allow for other UIs to be added such as Web and Eclipse. Contributions and thoughts are welcome!
