Teiid 8.4 CR1 Available

Teiid 8.4 CR1 for EAP 6.1.Alpha* is now available in our downloads.  The new features Beta2:
  • TEIID-2504 Improved socket results processing large results processing over a socket transport have been significantly improved for forward only results. Scrollable results will have only a marginal improvement.
  • TEIID-2427 TEIID-2311 Column Masking added column masking and refined row-based security. Also allow for permissions to be granted via the MetadataFactory methods addPermission and addColumnPermisison to enable adding roles via a MetadataRepository.

Additional web service security features and mongo connectivity have made it into 8.4 and will be fully doc'ed and in the release notes by the next CR/Final.

If needed we will produce a CR2 in approximately 10 days and will generally be selective about what issues get released before the Final. 

Beyond the 8.4 Final we now have the 8.4.1 and 8.5 release version targets active to take additional issues.

*And now more on the switch to EAP 6.1...

If you have any concerns about switching from AS to EAP first read:

The most important take away is that EAP 6.1 Alpha is roughly the same as what AS 7.2 Final would have been - including licensing.  So don't be scared off by the name, version, or alpha designation.

Q: How does all this tie into the Teiid release schedule?

A: Teiid 8.4 and subsequent 8.x releases will be targeting the EAP line.  It is not clear however if there will be another public release of EAP off of the AS 7.x line. 

Q: Will subsequent Teiid 8.x releases remain compatible with EAP 6.1 Alpha (or whatever the latest public release is)?

A: Yes, until Wildfly 8 is released and a Teiid 9.0 is available targeting it at which point the community effort will track only the latest.  More than likely this implies both a Teiid 8.5 and 8.6.

Q: When will Teiid 9.0 be available?

A: That's not definitive.  Wildfly has its first alpha already available - and targets the release in November.  That would put Teiid 9.0 tentatively at the beginning of 2014.

Teiid Runtimes Explained

If you have been following Teiid lately we have been going through a whole lot of renovations. Yes, renovations or reorganization or refactoring or whatever you want to call it. Basically, we are making Teiid more modular with fewer dependencies that can be used by however your use case dictates rather than use it as one monolith application deployed into WildFly JEE Application Server. There is nothing wrong in using Teiid as server model, but with the proliferation of container-based workloads and cloud-based architectures, the previous server-based model does not work or simply won't scale. So, we needed to think of alternatives, thus Teiid team introduced a couple different versions modular Teiid what we are calling as "Teiid Runtimes".

Note that in these modular Teiid runtimes, not all the features you were used to using in Teiid Server model may not be there but you will have extensions to add in those that are most appropriate for your domain. If you are looking …

Teiid Platform Sizing Guidelines and Limitations

Users/customers always ask us about the sizing of their Data Virtaulization infrastructure based on Teiid or the JDV product from Redhat. Typically this is very involved question and not a very easy one answer in plain terms. This is due to fact that it involves taking into consideration questions like:
What kind of sources that user is working with? Relational, file, CRM, NoSQL etc.How many sources they are trying to integrate? 10, 20, 100?What are the volumes of data they are working with? 10K, 100K, 1M+?What are the query latency times from the sources? How you are using Teiid to implement the data integration/virtualization solution. What kind of queries that user is executing? Even small federated results may take a lot of server side processing - especially if the plan needs tweaking.Is materializing being used?Is query written in optimal way?and so on..Each and every one of the question affects the performance profoundly, and if you got mixture of those then it become that much…
