8.11 Final Released, Support for OData V4 and SAP HANA

Keeping up with tradition of releasing a minor release every 3 months, the Teiid community is proud to announce yet another feature rich release - 8.11.0.Final. We have resolved 117 JIRA issues (features, enhancements, bugs) in this release. You can download the latest version from http://teiid.jboss.org/downloads

JBoss EAP & Teiid:
Note that in this release the base environment to deploy Teiid is moved JBoss EAP 6.4 platform. For your convenience, we are also providing a download link where EAP 6.4 Alpha + Teiid 8.11 + Teiid Web-Console bundled all in single downloadable file. You also have choice of using Docker image if you choose to at Docker Hub.

Embedded Teiid:
If you are working with Embedded Teiid checkout our new examples repository at https://github.com/teiid/teiid-embedded-examples For embedded we are changing from providing a kit, to just relying on maven and the examples for 8.12.  We want provide as many example scenarios as possible, so that you can pick a example and start implementing your usecase.

Special thanks to Tom Arnold for submitting regexp_replace and to Ted Jones for developing the Hana support.

    Teiid is also seeing a large number of community members that are asking questions in out forums, we sincerely thank you all. Keep those questions and comments rolling in. We need to keep the momentum going. Write a blog, share your story.

    What's Coming:
    Lot of exciting stuff happening, we started to work on 8.12 and also planning on 9.0 simultaneously. We hope to bring in WildFly support in Teiid 8.12 along with EAP 6.4 and also move permanently to WildFly in Teiid 9.0 releases. We are gathering requirements. So, challenge for you is "How is your enterprise IT changing? What kind of changes you want to see from Teiid Data Virtualization platform?" come engage us in conversation that is important for you. We highly encourage it.

    Thank you again for your continued support.

    1. Good stuff. Are all new features and forward development now happening on your Github master branch? Please confirm that the Teiid 8.11 branch on Github is planned to get only defect fixes and patches.

      1. You can see JIRA for new items being planned for 8.12 & 9.0. If there is particular feature you are thinking about please let us know.

        Yes, 8.11 branch will not have any more updates. Typically if we find any bugs we patch them in the master branch which is 8.12, unless we come across bug of severe nature then we will release 8.11.1 in community.

    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…

    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 …
