Teiid 8.1 Final Released, Brings back "embedded" Teiid

The Teiid Team is very excited to announce the availability of Teiid 8.1-Final for JBoss AS 7.1.1.  If you are working with Teiid 8.0, we highly recommend to migrate to 8.1-Final version, as we have about 100 issues resolved along with many new features.

In Teiid 6.x versions, Teiid used to support a "embedded" version, this feature has been removed from 7.x versions, now it has been resurrected  with slightly different purpose.

Teiid Embedded

The main purpose of "Teiid Embedded" is to provide a data virtualization framework with full metadata definitions, query planning and query optimizations across multiple disparate sources with full query features minus any platform specific details such as external vdb deployments, connection management, clustering, authentications etc.  This provides a perfect environment to write a very specific data integration and virtualization needs in any vertical market for your application with out any JBoss AS specific dependencies.

TEIID-2113 Misc parser improvements - the parser will now accept the LATERAL keyword for defining a LATERAL join (previously we just used the TABLE keyword), unary negation is now supported e.g. -col1, the FOR keyword is optional for TEXTAGG, and the BNF documentation was dramatically improved. TEIID-2036 Dependent Join Array Comparison - platforms supporting array comparisons can have multi-attribute dependent joins pushed down as array comparisons. Oracle, PG, and H2 translators …
