If you are thinking, Teiid is a relational data integration engine what does it has to do with a JEE container? This has little do with Web technologies. It is all about JCA (Java Connector Architecture) and the advanced development features of JBossAS. Let me explain each reason in a multi-part series of articles.

Reason 1: Right ingredients. Integrate with modules designed by the domain experts.

Even though Teiid is a data integration engine, the inner runtime workings of Teiid apart from the command parsing, relational planner and optimization engine are much more similar to any enterprise server application. Like security, user management, resource management, log management, caching, availability, scalability, relia…
