Teiid 9.1 Alpha1 Released

Teiid 9.1 Alpha1 has been posted.  This is expected to be a typical 3 month feature release cycle with pre-releases about every two weeks.  So far in Alpha1 you'll find:
  • TEIID-4243 BatchUpdateException support in JDBC to indicate what part of batch succeeds when a failure occurs.
  • TEIID-4191 NO QUOTE option for TEXTAGG.
  • TEIID-4200 Moved to WildFly 10 as host environment
WildFly Upgrade

We chose to stick with the Teiid 9.x release series even with the platform update since we not introducing Teiid centric feature changes and this by itself will not be a breaking change for most.  However the WildFly 10 upgrade does mean that JRE 1.8+ is required for both the server and embedded.  Teiid 9.0 will be supported for an extended period to provide a JRE 1.7 compatible platform.  Other know issues:

TEIID-4306: xa datasource create cli not work
TEIID-3834: start/stop of a data source or resource adapter requires a restart (somewhat worse behavior than WildFly 9 from our perspective)

Teiid Designer

A Teiid Designer release should be available shortly that is compatible with WildFly 9 and Teiid 8.13.x with partial support for Teiid 9.0.x.  A Teiid Designer release compatible with WildFly 10 is TDB.  The tooling team has several irons including refinements to the OpenShift web UI and the Komodo project - so anyone with an interest in tooling work should contact their community.

Coming Soon to 9.1

TEIID-3617: Provide an option to Limit per user based connections
TEIID-3754: OData V2 service removal
TEIID-4000: Data Expand support
And much more...


9.0.1 is due out later this week, and as mentioned above we'll keep supporting 9.0.x for an extended period.


8.13.6 is due out next week.  At this point only critical/blocker fixes will make it into 8.13.x.

As always thanks for all the community support,

Teiid 9.0 Released for WildFly 9.0.2

Teiid 9.0 is now available -  While slightly longer than expected, this release addresses a large number of issues - 273 - of which the vast majority are fixes.

Like 8.13.x, Teiid 9.0 is based upon WildFly 9.0.2.  The downloads page contains a consolidated download with WildFly 9.0.2 + Teiid 9.0.0 + Teiid Web-Console 2.7.0.  You may also choose to use Docker image on Docker Hub

It is important to consult the migration guide even if you are already on 8.13 to ensure a smooth transition.  Even though there are relatively few large features, there are some breaking changes - and not all provide backwards compatible options.

The community web site documentation page has been updated to reflect our conversion to GitBook.  We'll be working on converting the quickstarts into this documentation set as well.

  • TEIID-3601 Large row counts internal tables and source queries are no longer limited to max integer rows. However update counts, count aggregate values, user result sets, etc. are still limited to max integer.
  • TEIID-3792 Array Quantified Comparisons can be used to search array values - for example expression = SOME (array_expression)
  • TEIID-3462 Semantic VDB Versioning can be used in the VDB name and connection string, rather than the simple integer version. See the Reference for more.
  • TEIID-3849 Cassandra Update Improvements for bulk/batch updates and asynch processing.
  • TEIID-3869 Additional geospatial support for Geoserver integration with Teiid.
  • TEIID-2476 Data role metadata filtering to omit non-accessible objects from system tables.
  • TEIID-4076 Improved autoCommitTxn detect to prevent unnecessary transactions.
  • TEIID-4084 Allowing for with clause inlining to improve performance.
  • TEIID-3725 JDG Cache/DSL Translator added cache swapping feature to support external materialization.
  • TEIID-3810 JDG Cache/DSL Translator upgraded support for JDG 6.6
  • TEIID-3520 Swagger Translator for calling REST services defined by Swagger.
  • TEIID-4202 Lateral join and procedure pushdown support for targeted sources.
9.x Work

You should expect a 9.1 in about 3 months.  It will primarily target updating to WildFly 10.  We will also be continue working on making materialization easier to use with JDG and other external sources.

8.13.x Work

There will likely be an 8.13.6 and 8.13.7 - but with the release of 9.1 we will stop supporting the 8.13 branch.

Thank you to everyone who helped bring issues to light.  If one of your issues does not seem fully addressed, please let us know.
