Teiid 8.12 Alpha2 is now available from the downloads and maven.  Feature highlights since Alpha1 include:
  • TEIID-3515 TEIID-3530 Dependent join enhancements in hints and pushdown planning.
  • TEIID-2883 Actian Vector in Hadoop Translator added
Expect more translators to come for this release.  There should be a Beta1 in about 2 weeks, and an 8.11.2 release will be available by the end of the week to correct a couple of new issues and addresses two of the issues originally intended for 8.11.1 but that didn't make it into the release.

Thanks again for all of the community support,

VDB Builder - Next Generation Teiid Tooling Available

Next Generation of Teiid Designer

The Teiid Designer team has been developing a more versatile VDB editing tool called the VDB Builder.  The VDB Builder is a command line tool that allows creating, editing and managing dynamic VDBs and their contents.

This tool is a result of our on-going Komodo initiative to develop a non-Eclipse extensible VDB editing framework. We plan to continue building out this CLI to allow full editing of VDBs and data sources and eventually adding deployment capabilities. But it is currently limited to VDB creation and editing.

This framework is rooted in adapting a local embedded ModeShape repository which utilizes sequenced node structures modeled from the Teiid vdb-deployer.xsd schema definition and Teiid BNF.

Try It Out

You can start building your VDBs now by downloading and unzipping the first milestone kit from SourceForge!
You can view and checkout the source code here:  https://github.com/Teiid-Designer/komodo
Here are a couple of screen caps of initial welcome screen and showing the summary information for a VDB that was imported.
























Future Direction

Moving forward, we plan to refine and add capabilities to the framework that will allow for other UIs to be added such as Web and Eclipse. Contributions and thoughts are welcome!

Teiid 8.12 Alpha1

Teiid 8.12 Alpha1 is now available from the downloads and maven.  Feature highlights in Alpha1 include:
  • TEIID-3411 LDAP modeling can now better account for associations defined by multivalued attributes.
  • TEIID-3323 Vertica translator added.
There have also been several important fixes, new options for default handling, and refinements to dependent join pushdown planning.  We except more sources to be added in the subsequent pre-releases and we're working toward removing the embedded kit in favor of more examples and just using maven, so stay tuned.

Also expect an 8.11.1 release in about a week to provide fixes for around 5 - 10 key issues.

Thanks again for all of the community support,

Teiid on top of HP Vertica Analytic Database Server

HP Vertica Analytic Database Server is designed to manage large, fast-growing volumes of data and provide very fast query performance when used for data warehouses and other query-intensive applications.

Starting from Teiid 8.12, with Vertica Data Source(Vertica supply JDBC Driver) Teiid support connect/transform/federate data exist in Vertica table.

vertica-as-a-datasource is example demonstrates using the Vertica Translator to access data in Vertica Server, this can be a quick start for implementing your usecase.
