Teiid 8.4.Final Released, MongoDB support added

In keeping with our 3 month release window we are proud to announce our next time boxed release - Teiid 8.4.Final.

Here are top three (3) features:
  1. The deployment platform is upgraded to EAP 6.1 Alpha. You can also use EAP 6.1 Final, but you need a developer subscription from Redhat. For the difference between community and subscription version see If you have concerns about switching from JBoss AS 7.1.1 to EAP please read
  2. Pluggable row and column based security. Read more about it:
  3. Support for MongoDB. Use Teiid and its SQL language to access the data from MongoDB. This release includes a new MongoDB translator and resource adapter. Read more about it:  More blogs coming on this soon.
Here is complete run down of features in this release:
  • TEIID-2444 EAP Platform - the deployment platform for Teiid has been changed to EAP 6.1.Alpha1
  • TEIID-2429 Improved sort performance - improved sorts for large data sets especially under heavy load.
  • TEIID-2449 VDB Zips - added the ability to deploy non-Designer based vdb zip artifacts with the ability to place DDL outside of the VDB.xml via the DDL-FILE metadata repository.
  • TEIID-2423 TEIID-2470 Additional Embedded deployments - xml and zip vdb deployment options are available for Teiid Embedded.
  • TEIID-1092 Session Variables - added the teiid_session_set and teiid_session_get methods to maintain session variables.
  • TEIID-2326 Shared Mat Views - materialized views from imported vdbs will be reused rather than recreated in each importing vdb.
  • TEIID-2344 Automatic DB Version Detection - the JDBC translator database version property in most circumstances will not need to be set manually - see the compatibility note below.
  • TEIID-2453 STRING_AGG Added the string_agg aggregate function for concatenating binary and character strings.
  • 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.
  • TEIID-2507 Session scoped mat views - mat views can now be scoped to sessions via the cache hint, rather than to just the global scope.
  • TEIID-2329 MongoDB Support - added a mongodb translator/connector with a wide feature set including pushdown support for lobs, composite keys, and embedded joins. See the Reference for more.
We would like to thank our growing community for their participation in forums, JIRA and mailing list. Keep them coming. If you have a write up or a blog, let us know and we will link from the Teiid website.

If you have feature request let us know, we are actively developing Teiid 8.5 now, so speak up!

Thank you.

Ramesh & Steve.
